Snetterton 300 receives rave media reviews

Monday, February 28 2011

The Snetterton 300 circuit has now been live for more than a week, and key car and bike journalists had their first opportunity to sample the new configuration at a dedicated media track test day on Friday.

Representatives from motorsport, motoring and local press attended the event, which gave two and four wheel media the opportunity to sample the 2.99-mile layout in a track-prepared PalmerSport BMW M3 GTP, with one-to-one tuition from professional racer Charlie Butler-Henderson.

Guests were then treated to a flying lap in a Radical SR8 sports prototype driven by Arden Motorsport GP2 driver Jolyon Palmer.

Feedback on the new configuration was overwhelmingly positive, with media hailing the fun and challenging nature of the track:

"It's a different world to the previous layout - so much fun to drive and a really good challenge," enthused Michael Bailey from the Eastern Daily Press.

"It's good that the old track hasn't been changed in the wrong places," commented Motorsport magazines Ed Foster. "The new infield section is fun and quite technical, there's plenty of overtaking opportunities."

"It's an unbelievable track - it gives you more confidence as a rider," commented Emma Franklin from Performance Bike magazine.

"Great fun and quite a challenge compared to the old layout," added Stephen Dobie from Evo magazine.

"So much more entertaining for spectators," concluded BBC Radio Norfolk's Bob Carter, whilst Phil Armes of Future Radio said: "Coram is going to be a real ballbreaker!"

Other publications that attended included Autosport, Motorsport News, Motorcycle News and Fast Bike, all of whom will be reviewing the 300 layout in their next issues.
