Snetterton Motor Racing Circuit is a motor racing circuit in Norfolk, England. It is situated on the A11 road some 20 km north-east of the town of Thetford and 30 km south-west of the city of Norwich. The circuit is named after the village of Snetterton, which lies about 2 km to the north-west of the circuit, although much of the circuit is actually in the adjoining civil parish of Quidenham.
In October 2005, it was announced by the owner of the circuit; Jonathan Palmer of MotorSport Vision, that the circuit would undergo extensive rebuilding work, in order to lengthen the circuit, and improve its facilities.
Snetterton originally started off life as an raf airfield (raf snetterton Heath) which was then designated for use by the United States Army Air Force. The airfield was opened in May 1943 and closed down in November 1948.
As Snetterton was originally an airfield, most of the lap is spent going at full throttle in a straight line. Although this is great for testing, spectators will not be able to see all of the cars and bikes most of the time. The current lap record officially stands at 56.095 (125.27 mph) set by Klaas Zwart, during a brscc meeting in August 2007. He was even faster in qualifying, setting an unofficial lap record of 54.687 (128.50 mph).
