Snetterton Update

Tyrells Restaurant will not be open to visitors & spectators at the Club's meeting at Snetterton
on Saturday 5th September 2020

We have seen flip-flop mixed information on whether Tyrells Restaurant would be open to Visitors & Spectators but it seems the only refreshment point for Visitors & Spectators will be the Snack Bar near Murrays Corner. So V8 Members will be meeting there for breakfast - it's next to the parking area.

For more information contact Victor Smith. Contacts & Snetterton

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.

Entrance to Snetterton Circuit from the A11 via the ticket control point

Howard Gosling says that "during the online Race Officials' meeting yesterday evening we were told that as the bar area of Tyrells Restaurant is reserved for the Race Stewards' use and that Tyrells Restaurant will NOT be open to the Public (visitors/spectators) at the Club's race meeting this weekend. There is a snack bar near Murray corner and that is for the Public (visitors/spectators)". See larger copy of layout above

The chart above shows you the entrance from the A11 via the ticket control point, then a bridge over Bentley Straight with the snack bar ahead and the parking area alongside the entrance route. The snack bar will offer food and drink as take-aways.

The MG Car 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 at the Snack Bar by Murrays Corner 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 from the A11.

Note tickets to enter the Circuit must be purchased in advance
