Snetterton Information & FAQs – Track Day Guide For Visitors

HomeSnetterton Race Circuit

Snetterton’s original purpose was as an RAF airfield, designated for use by the 96th United States Air Force Bomber Group between May 1943 and November 1948. The circuit itself was created in 1951 from the network of remaining runways and its first race event was held in the same year by the Aston Martin Owner’s Club.

Snetterton Information & FAQs

The circuit configuration has changed several times during Snetterton’s 60-year history. In the 1960s and early 1970s, it was 2.7 miles in length and a large section ran almost adjacent to the A11 road, before a sharp hairpin turn and a long run back to what is now known as the Brundle and Nelson corners.

Passenger Experience Testimonial

We asked Dorset based author Jo Kemp to write a testimonial on her Calum Lockie passenger experience…

I can do this! It’s only a car (that I won’t be driving) and it’ll be no more than 20 minutes or so around a racetrack. Granted… there are one or two sharp bends but it’s a circular racetrack and anyway, I’ll be in the experienced hands of Calum Lockie. 

Easy-peasy I thought as I was trussed into the passenger seat then it slowly dawned on me that this was very, very REAL. This was no ordinary car. This was a mean souped-up Porsche 911 and Calum wasn’t going to take any prisoners. He didn’t.

Passenger experience with Calum Lockie and Author Jo Kemp Goldtrack Days

Hanging on for grim death we achieved a staggering 155mph during what was one of the most exciting, exhilarating and terrifying bucket list experiences of a lifetime.

Honestly, this is something we all need to do. Never mind fairground rides and the like.  This was the speed that was REAL and in the hands of someone whose experience is REAL, and I will never ever watch motor racing or a car chase again without reliving the total thrill of that 20 minutes around a windswept hill known as Thruxton.
