The BTCC has been visiting Snetterton in Norfolk for over 50 years, and in that time the track has undergone a number of layout changes. A significant investment in 2011 saw the circuit extended into the ‘300’ layout used by the championship today, which includes two of the longest straights in the country.
Drawing inspiration from iconic motorsport corners such as Monza’s Parabolica and the Montreal Hairpin, it certainly offers some fantastic viewing for spectators and makes for a popular family weekend.
The 2021 campaign saw a pair of milestones for BTCC fan favourites Colin Turkington and Gordon Shedden, who achieved their 60th and 50th series victories in Norfolk, while most recently Turkington celebrated his 500th BTCC race at the venue in 2022.
In 2023, we will see Britain’s premier motorsport head to Snetterton earlier in the campaign than its usual mid-August slot, with the 2.97-mile circuit hosting Rounds 7, 8 and 9 on 20/21 May.
