Snetterton Preview

30 May 2023

After an action-packed opening two races, Trackday Championship returns on June 10th for the third round of the 2023 season. With the fantastic racing we’ve already witnessed so far this year, anticipation for this upcoming race is high and we’re expecting a tremendous show in Norfolk.

The venue for round three is an ever-present on the Trackday Championship calendar – Snetterton 300. The popular circuit configuration is a favourite for a number in the paddock, as it does fantastically well at both testing and thrilling competitors. There’s little need to wonder why Snetterton’s 300 circuit is such a fantastic track to race on, given how designer Jonathan Palmer took inspiration from a number of the world’s leading motor racing venues.

Snetterton perfectly complements its long, fast straights with an exhilarating technical infield section to provide championship rivals plenty of opportunity to overtake and maximise their points haul. Moreover, it gives TDC drivers the same platform to battle on as some of the highest-profile UK Motorsport championships, such as: British Touring Car, British Superbikes and British GT.

In 2022, we were treated to an all-time Trackday Championship classic. Eventual class B winner John Lyne (Tylah Motorsport #71) dramatically crossed the line just 0.051secs ahead of rival Jordan Honeybone (Apple Car Centre) for one of the closest finishes TDC has ever recorded. If this years visit is even half as exciting as last years, we’re in for a great race!

Last time out at Anglesey, Datum Motorsport #7’s Mick Presland recorded his first-ever Trackday Championship victory. Find out how Presland, along with Se7en Motorsport (Class C) and KEW Technology (Class D), secured their respective top steps with our comprehensive race report here.

Just three points separate the overall top three in the all-important championship standings and it’s going to be truly fascinating to watch how both the race and standings unfold in Norfolk.
