Snetterton unveils corner names for new circuit layouts

Legendary motorsport stars, Norfolk heroes and historical figures are among the personalities and places to be immortalised by the redeveloped Snetterton circuit, as venue owner MotorSport Vision (MSV) unveils the new corner names for the multi-configuration track.

Following the announcement in Autumn 2010 of a multi-million pound transformation of the Norfolk venue into arguably the UK’s best circuit for both competitors and spectators, MSV invited fans of Snetterton to propose names for the new circuit’s turns.
