5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SNETTERTON VINTAGE FESTIVAL & HISTORIC CAR CHAMPIONSHIPS
Fancy a late-summer week in rural Norfolk?
Snetterton has organised back-to-back weekends of historic racing. The Vintage Festival on Sunday September 17th has a pre-war theme, ranging from Edwardian aero-engined monsters to streamlined voiturettes. The following Saturday – the 23rd – will see Fifties, Sixties and Seventies action, with single-seaters from the cigar-tube era through to slicks and wings.
The Vintage Festival aims to create a period look and feel, with an adjoining car show, special parking areas, and a programme of live jazz, rock ‘n’ roll and big-band swing. Register your classic on the website for a free admission ticket.
All the way from Cadwell
Traditionally contested at Cadwell Park, the John Holland trophy will be awarded at Snetterton this year, promising to provoke some spectacular racing on one of the UK’S tightest circuits.
Anything goes (so long as it goes quickly)
On the 23rd, the HSCC’S Classic Racing Cars race embraces the spirit of Formula Libre, with almost anything from the Sixties allowed to take part so long as it doesn’t have downforce or slick tyres. Expect intense cross-discipline battles.
