Snetterton has undergone a massive revamp. Jonathan Palmer told Motor Sport last month that the £3.5 million redevelopment, including a new infield loop, resurfaced track and bigger paddock, had been a bold move.
Since then various people have not only driven on the extended track but experienced it as a spectator. A bold move it may have been, but initial feedback has been excellent.
Three-time Grand Prix winner Johnny Herbert has lapped the new ‘300’ layout and was positive about the changes: “MSV have done a very good job. It’s given the circuit more character. There are some tricky corners, but they’re enjoyable at the same time. There are overtaking opportunities there for sure.”
And the best way to find out how good it is? Go and try it for yourselves. We’re sure you’ll love it. For details speak to Club MSV, MotorSport Vision’s in-house track day arm, on 0843 453 3000 or visit www.clubmsv.co.uk.
