Best of British motorsport to support Snetterton Truck Racing

Tuesday, September 06 2016

This weekend's British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) event at Snetterton (10/11 September) has a huge supporting programme of 20 races from a wide variety of categories, including saloons, single-seaters, and sportscars.

The line-up includes Legends Cars, which regularly follows the BTRC and is hugely popular with spectators. By contrast with the trucks, these pocket rockets may be tiny, but they are every bit as competitive, with reverse-grids and close racing ensuring enthralling action.

The diminutive theme continues with the Mini Seven and Miglia categories, featuring the iconic British car in both standard and highly modified form. The original incarnation remains an enduring motorsport attraction, and with cars often drifting three-abreast into the corners, it's easy to see why.

The tin-top theme will continue with three Classic Touring Car Racing Club grids, covering over half a century of saloon racing. From the 1960s Minis, Lotus Cortinas, Ford Capris and Mustangs, to 70s and 80s Alfasuds, BMWs and Ford Sierras, and 90s and 2000s Subaru Imprezas, Honda Civic Type Rs, there will be plenty to see from a familiar range of machinery.

There are many more German saloons in the Kumho BMW Championship, which features a grid dominated by the iconic M3, plus a variety of 3-Series and Compact models.

Main raceday Sunday also includes racing from the MG Owners Club Championship, where classic MGBs battle with their modern-day MGF counterparts and the ZR hatchbacks. There's also close racing from the Classic Formula Ford 1600 Championship, which covers the famous single-seater championship's early years, renowned for frenetic and unpredictable action.

The event also includes five rounds of the British Truck Racing Championship, whilst off-track there's a feast of fun including breathtaking rides on the fearsome Red Dragon Monster Truck, which can carry up to ten passengers whilst crushing all obstacles in its path. Children can take the wheel of Mini Monster Trucks, and there will also be a fairground, adventure playground and a display of show trucks.
