Also am I right in reading that any 750 Formula driver who is in section 6 on Saturday will have to move on Sunday into section 5?????

F1000 (23 drivers) are in area 2. If the parking above the petrol pump is part of area 5, and not area 2, then the areas 5, 6 & 7 allocated for 750F (17 drivers) and H750F (21 drivers) would seem fair?

Does anyone have a spare ticket please, I’m just looking for one now. Thanks!

I think Club Enduro move into 6 and 7 on Sunday or am I reading that wrongly?

It’s not clear to me as for Sunday we’re not listed at all and area 5 is allocated as “overflow”???

But I think if the parking above the petrol pump is included in area 5 then that should be enough space

We are in the overflow on Sunday, so unless you want to move then it’s probably easiest to just park in the Overflow both days.

Yep, That is how I am seeing it too.

Hi folks,

I've just has a chat to Nicky and pointed out the parking issue. Her advice is to park in zones 5 and 6 as shown on the Saturday and then stay put, the club will be happy with that and are now aware of the issue. The Club Enduro parking is only overflow for those not allocated a garage, and so the space vacated by the historics should suffice for them.

Cheers

Dave

Thanks Dave, that is much better, it would be no fun having to move part way through the weekend. Thanks for sharing.

So to kick off....

I had quite an eventful weekend and although I have raced Snetterton before (last time in 2001) I have not raced on the 300. Qualifying was wet and it did not take me long to realise that the wet tyres that came with my car were totally useless as I trundled round significantly slower than most, every time I touched the throttle or put any real steering input in the car just lost traction. It was a nightmare to know whether I was going to go straight on at the next corner or enter it backwards. So qualified a dismal 13th.

Right after qualifying I popped over to see Steve Polley and bought a new set of wet tyres the rational being that the cost of the tyres would probably be less that the cost of repairs to the car if the race was wet and I threw it in the scenery.

Typically the first race was dry and so starting from 13th I now had to learn that track properly. I had a fairly lonely race until the last lap where I managed to get by Martin and Rod to finish 9th overall and 2nd in Class B. This was enough to win the Class B Championship which I was pretty pleased about.

So Sunday dawned and the rain fell 20 minutes before the race and so the new wets went on the car. Starting 12th and now knowing where the next bend was going I got a great start and by three quarters of the first lap I touched 5th place before locking a wheel and spinning at Nelsons. This left me right at the back but with the excellent grip on the new tyres I carved my way up through the field which was helped by a couple of spinners and finished 6th overall and grabbed the second fastest lap of the race.....oh what could have been.

Still a great weekend and a pretty good 750F turnout for the last race of the season.

I am sure others will be along shortly with their reports too.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again next year and hopefully plenty more faces.
