Snetterton 300 Circuit Closer To Completion

1 Mins read

The Snetterton 300 Circuit has passed its first safety inspection as its redevelopment heads towards its conclusion, with the track close to being a fully operational race circuit again.

The whole 2.99 mile Norfolk circuit, bar the Revett straight, has received its final layer of tarmac, while the majority of kerbs are in place and groundwork on the paddock extension has also begun. The track also received positive feedback after the UK's major sporting and circuit licensing authorities visited for an interim circuit inspection.

Circuit manager Jamie Hooper said: “We have received very positive feedback from the MSA (Motor Sports Association), ACU (Auto Cycle Union) and MCRCB (Motorcycle Racing Control Board) following our initial safety inspections.

“Work is progressing very well, and we anticipate the new circuit will be operational from the 14th of February, which is extraordinary considering the works only commenced in November. I am eagerly awaiting the views and comments from the drivers and riders who will be the first to try out the spectacular new layout!”
