360MRC can­cels the Snet­ter­ton Six Hours

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
