Snetterton prepares to welcome the Vintage Sports-Car Club
for its 2015 Race Season Finale

The VSCC returns for a fourth consecutive year to Snetterton in Norfolk to celebrate the end of another exciting Race Season, with our Seaman Memorial Trophies Meeting on Sunday 27 September again providing the fitting finale. 

The action will take place on the venue’s SN200 Circuit with its blend of long, fast straights and technical, sweeping bends with a 10-Race programme. The day will include our traditional events for Vintage, PVT and Historic Racing and Sports-Cars, with a number of the Club’s most prized silverware on offer, such as the prestigious Vintage & Historic Seaman Trophies, first competed for in 1950.

We also look forward to again hosting the Bugatti Owners’ Club’s revered Williams Trophy Race for Pre-1935 2-seater Grand Prix Cars, which celebrates the win of William ‘Grover’ Williams in the first Monaco Grand Prix in 1929 driving a Bugatti Type 35B.

The year’s final Premier Cru Racing event will also boast a wonderful line-up of original Pre-war Grand Prix Cars, led by the support of local Maserati Specialists, Sean Danaher Restorations, whilst the Hawthorn International Trophy for 1950s Sports Racing Cars is sure to provide yet another on-track highlight of the season.

Following our Cadwell and Oulton events earlier this year, this will be the third of our ‘Vintage Festivals’ in association with MSV this season. In addition to the usual warm reception and excellent facilities, our hosts have again organised plenty of other Vintage entertainment to complement the on-track activities.

Those who have attended previous events will be familiar with the popular Cream Tea Tent and live Jazz music, whilst the T6 Harvard WW2 trainer aircraft of ‘Aero Legends’ will take to the sky to perform a thrilling aerobatic display during the Lunch Break.

Discover Snetterton's illustrious racing history with a display featuring photos, racing programmes and other memorabilia located in the Circuit Office, whilst an Adventure Playground will keep the younger visitors entertained. With the traditional free access to the Competitor Paddock, dedicated Pre-war and Classic Spectator Car Parks, Trade Stands and Autojumble and catering onsite it is sure to be the ideal family day out.

The Club’s event has proved a real hit with the local motorsport enthusiasts since our first event in 2012 so we anticipate another fantastic spectator and marshalling turnout.

Practice will get underway at 9.30am with Racing to begin at 1.00pm following the Lunch Break (timings subject to change).

Advance Tickets are on sale now until Tuesday 22 September (VSCC Members: £12.50,; Non-Members: £15.00, or will be available on the gate (All: £19.00). Children Under 13 go free.
