Classic Cars (UK) - - Events Planner -

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.

For­ties am­bi­ence

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.

Fancy go­ing?
