Update - 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 Club’s 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

Information
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.

Takeaway food & drink service
The COVID guidelines say the Circuit will be offering "a takeaway service with a greater emphasis on "Grab and Go" items to reduce queuing times". They add that "self-service buffets and salad bars will be closed" and all visitors "will be expected to wear a face mask covering when they enter any shops or when you purchase takeaway food and drink from their restaurants".

Meeting places for V8 Members
The Circuit website says "the general public will not have any access to the working areas (for example the paddock and pit lane) and overnight stays for the public are not permitted at this race meeting.

The likely meeting places for V8 members will be near Tyrells Restaurant and in the parking area.

When meeting up with fellow V8 Register members please observe prudent social distancing and avoid close contact with groups of more than 10 people.
