Nestled in the Norfolk countryside, the 2.99-mile ‘300’ circuit at Snetterton is one of the most technically demanding circuits on the ROKiT British F4 calendar.
Two long straights – roughly equidistant around the lap – provide plenty of opportunities for drivers to slipstream and carrying momentum and precision through the infield section is vital to putting together a strong lap – one wrong move can compromise a driver’s line for three or even four corners to follow.
Factor in iconic corners such as the Wilson Hairpin (now sadly minus the famous ‘Scary Tree’) and the chicane at Brundle and Nelson and it’s immediately clear why Snetterton registers as one of the standout events of the season.
