Track Day vid Snetterton 20.05.21

Post by andy tims » Sat May 22, 2021 11:07 pm

Highlights of a superb track day at Snetterton (Norfolk, England) 20.05.21.

Sorry about the over-exposure of the filming. First time I've not mounted the camera on the windscreen, but I've got some settings to try next time so the quality will be better.

1:50 - Trying to stay with Arun (a racer who counts Snetterton as his favourite circuit) in his Cup 360. Eventually I lose touch in heavy traffic.
6:24 driving in the rain. The track did dry out after about an hour
6:59 Chasing a BMW race car that had lost his rear PU, but was otherwise in good order.
8:03 He gets a slide on coming on to the Bentley straight
8:20 Knowing he'll be nervous about grip levels, I pull a slightly rude pass at the end of the straight
8:28 and then I'm a bit too fast through The Esses
10:00 Passing a Caterham 620R
10:05 Letting Phillip & Alastair through (Sport 380 and Cup 430) and then following them

Very cool.
There must be a mirror in the car as it came out reversed.)

That looks like so much fun. What was the car at the 1:08 mark that you were passing? It looked like a giant go cart.

It's great fun. I try to do circa 10 days per year - 50% car / 50% bike, but Covid meant a slow start to this year.

Some weird race car. There were a couple there on the day.
