Please note - we understand the event is open to spectators but
of course the UK Government could at any time make national or local
lockdowns or other changes to permissions for mass gatherings. We
understand Tyrells Restaurant at
Snetterton Circuit will be open for take-aways.
- Tyrells Restaurant will be open for take-aways
We understand from two Club members who work a couple of days
each week at Snetterton Circuit that Tyrells Restaurant will
be open to visitors and spectators for take-aways at the Clubs
event there on 5th/6th September. It seems that pedestrian access
from the parking area to Tyrells will be available so we should
be able to get there despite the "Restricted Access"
diagram posted on the Snetterton website. So, weather permitting,
we hope to meet up for breakfast there and hopefully the wooden
tableson the grassed area outside Tyrells will be available
as usual. See details of the Restricted Access area posted on
the Snetterton website. More
The Club's end of year two day race meeting at Snetterton has
been a popular place for MGV8 enthusiasts to meet up but this
year the event is almost a month earlier over the weekend of
Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September. With so many V8 events
cancelled or postponed this year because of the pestilence,
we are planning a V8 Gathering at Snetterton on Saturday
5th September. with prudent social distancing.
Travelling early in the day you can enjoy cool air and clear
roads, so many V8 Members will aim to have a take-away breakfast
from Tyrells Restaurant at the Circuit. You can park
up in the grass shortly after you cross over the bridge
after the ticket control point at the entrance. Note
tickets to enter the Circuit must be purchased in advance
- see below.
