Venue information for Snetterton
Snetterton is an extremely popular test venue on which premier racing cars have been developed. The locally based Lotus F1 team made Snetterton its home test track, while major British single-seater manufacturer Van Diemen has never been based more than a stone's throw away from the Revett Straight.
Snetterton is one of the fastest race circuits in the country. The layout includes two of the longest straights in the UK, linked by quick corners, and a couple of mind-concentrating chicanes.
The first race meeting at Snetterton was arranged in 1951 by the Aston Martin Owner's Club. The track had been cobbled together from a network of runways, which formed the wartime base of the 96th US Air Force Bomber Group.
The circuit configuration has changed greatly since then, shortening a lap to just under two miles.
