Round-the-clock fun as 2CVs take to Snetterton this weekend

Sunday, August 19 2012

Snetterton hosts its annual 24 hour race this weekend (24-26 August), with the annual 2CV event, where the emphasis is firmly on fun!

As ever, a huge entry is expected and the famous French cars will be racing around the 200 circuit. Expect frantic action despite the endurance format as drivers hang onto the cars in front to gain a vital slipstream along the Senna and Bentley straights.

2CV racing is well-known for pitlane camaraderie and the teams' never-say-die attitude that has seen complete engine changes take place during the event! Pit crews are well-drilled and just as much action can be found in the garages as out on track.

Despite their relative speed, many professional drivers are keen to jump on board the 'tin snails' for an event where the pressure is off. With a party atmosphere around the circuit, this year's event is expected to provide more entertainment for race fans.

Tickets for the 2CV 24 Hours at Snetterton on 24-26 August are available for £10 in advance, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
