CRMC Classic Bike Championships
Snetterton 200
Saturday 11 - Sunday 12 October 2014

Snetterton hosts the final round of the Classic Motorcycle Racing Club season this weekend (11-12 Ocotber), with more than 400 motorcycles from the 1950s to the 1980s taking to the quick 200 Circuit for 30 races and four classic parades.

Honda GP and TT legend Jim Redman MBE will be in attendance as guest of honour to celebrate a fine season of motorcycle racing for both the club and the circuit. The six-time GP World Champion and multiple TT winner will be around all weekend for autographs, photos and to chat to fans. He will also lead a parade of special bikes, including a 500cc Honda 6, Honda RSC1000, Honda NS500 and a 500cc Manx Norton, on Sunday lunchtime.

The race programme includes the final rounds of the ACU UK Classic 500 and ACU UK Post-Classic 350 Championships, where all eyes are on Mike Cooper as he goes for a third straight title in both. The Lancastrian ace could seal an impressive hat-trick of 2014 titles if he can beat rivals Gary Thwaites, Ant Hat and George Hogton-Rusling in the Race of Aces Trophy to claim the King of Classics Championship as well.

Sunday's one-off Race of the Year contests are a highlight of any CRMC season, and always provide thrilling racing as the competitors aim to end the year on a high.

Variety will be added by the sidecars, which are always spectacular to watch as the passengers search for balance around high-speed corners

CSCC Classic Car Championships
Snetterton 200
Saturday 18 - Sunday 19 October 2014

This is the CSCC finale, back at the circuit where it all kicked off in April! Over two days all scores will be settled on the 200 circuit in a wide array of classic machinery. The CSCC has seven series of its own competing at this event.

Firstly there will be the Swinging Sixties, with contemporary sports, saloon and GT cars of the period, recreating a golden age of the sport.

The Tin Tops series for saloons under 2 litres recalls the bygone legends of touring car racing, expect the ever popular Mini Cooper S to star in this category!

Further action will come from the Future Classics for sports, saloons and GT cars from the 1970s, 1980s, Magnificent Sevens for Caterham-type cars, the Classic K series for race cars built between 1947 and 1965 and the new CSCC Modern Classics for more recent machinery.

Don't forget to visit the paddock too and the opportunity to see the cars up close as they are being prepared

BRDC F4 Championship

Saturday 25 - Sunday 26 October 2014

Once again Snetterton hosts the final rounds of the season for many of MSVR's sportscar, saloon and single-seater championships.

BRDC Formula 4 concludes its second season, as drivers aim to follow in the footsteps of inaugural champion Jake Hughes. F3 Cup, the UK's most cost-effective F3 championship, also comes to a head and Snetterton has played host to two three-way championship deciders in the past two seasons.

The close racing of the Toyo Tyres Production BMW Championship, and the tin-top variety of the Toyo Tyres Racing Saloons, MSVT Trackday Trophy and MSVT Team Trophy are sure to entertain. So too is the trackday superstar the Atom Cup.

The paddock will also be open allowing you to walk freely amongst the competitors and allow you to watch as they prepare their cars for the on track action.

 

The 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship calendar has been announced  (Friday 26 September) and Snetterton will continue to host a summer round in June on the spectacular 300 circuit.

The championship will visit Norfolk on 19-21 June as the 300 circuit retains its prime summer date as the battle for the riders to secure their place in the Showdown continues to wage.

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne scored the double at Snetterton this season, whilst Tommy Bridewell scored his first podium finish of the season for Milwaukee Yamaha as Josh Brookes and James Ellison also celebrated top three results.
