Maybe I’m always being a bit harsh when it comes to Snetterton. I had always assumed it was a track that was universally believed to be less enjoyable than many of its British counterparts. However, having spoken to a few racing friends, I was surprised to hear that quite a few people really enjoy driving here.
Located in Norfolk, this venue has undergone major changes in the past few decades to utilize more of the space available at the venue. What we have now is a long, twisty, technical racetrack with some infamously tough braking zones and corners that leave many scratching their heads, including me!
I think the reason that I’ve never loved the place is that in all honesty, I’ve always struggled to race well here. Maybe it’s jealousy? Frustration? I’m not sure…
But anyway. After plugging away and listening to the advice of those who have Snetterton nailed, I’ve managed to put together a decent lap in order to help you guys try and find that lap time as well.
Here are some targets I’ve set:
- Pro : 1:44.50
- Pro/Am : 1:48.50
- Am : 1:52.00
- My Laptime : 1:45.00
Whilst you fire your car around this place, make sure you take some time out to visit the scary tree. Maybe Snetterton really does have a lot of character after all?
