Snetterton 24 hour race - SAFETY car drivers wanted!

After handing duties to Andrew O in 2018, it's my turn to recruit safety car drivers again.

A lot of grads drivers have done this in the past - basically it involves sitting in Mr Palmer's BMW for a couple of hours, waiting for a
2CV to plough up the Norfolk countryside.  And then driving round very slowly until the offending snail is returned to the black stuff.

That's not quite as easy as it sounds (have you tried driving on track at a constant 50mph?), and the hours can be a bit antisocial (it is a 24 hour race after all).  But you get to see a race from another viewpoint, a few free laps of Snett, some food vouchers, and (on past experience) a goody bag from the
2CV club. If you're a novice, it also gets you an upgrade signature if you can find a willing clerk. Given that I'm one of the clerks and Andrew is another, that shouldn't be a problem.

The event is at Snetterton on the weekend of 16th - 18th August. That's in the middle of the grads summer break, so no doubt some of you will be getting bored ;-)

The race itself (i.e. the bit I need drivers for) starts on the Saturday. Start time is TBC.  SC Drivers generally do 1 or 2 sessions of 2 hours. I fit the rota around who wants to do what.

If you can be there on Friday evening, there will be a late practice session: having a lap or two of Snetterton in the dark is helpful as I swear the circuit is bigger at night.

All you need is to ever have held a National B race license (or better) and a willingness to spend a few hours at Snetterton.

If you're interested please drop me a line at
