360MRC cancels the Snetterton Six Hours
The Snetterton 6 Hours has been cancelled due to a lack of entries.
The 360 Motor Racing Club event for sportscars and touring cars built before 2000 has struggled to attract big grids since it was introduced in 2010. Organiser Claire Smith has now decided to cancel the 2016 edition, which had been scheduled for July 24.
“We cannot go on subsiding other people’s motorsport,” said Smith, who did not rule out bringing the event back in a modified form. “We will look at perhaps revamping or adapting this great event for a return at a future date.”
The move also means that the inaugural race for the Revett Straight Cup, aimed at fastback and coupe machines built between 1953 and 1965, has also been cancelled.
