Kwossants is the correct spelling in the South of England I believe.

Thanks, so do I. It was one of my Dad's badges. I've also got a 1951 Sporting Car Club of Norfolk one and an 'RAC Motorsport Member' one that will feature as avatars as well.

When I've cleaned them up as much as possible am going to make a badge bar for the Morgan for when it's on road rather than race duty.

Your Snett connections must go back as far as mine. I was born in Thetford, where my late father was involved with the St John Ambulance Brigade & when activities started at Snetterton he got the job of organising First Aid cover. He conveniently did that right up until 1971, by which time I could drive myself there.

According to my mother I first went at the age of two (1954) but my memories of the occasion are a little hazy...

As a matter of fact,there is a small Hotel here in the village.Hotel Sonneck,very friendly people decent charges and only ten mins from circuit.Im told that the food is always very good and plentyful.
Its in Rothenbach.I could always ask if theres a discount for a block booking?
Nice thing is its not very well known by many race crews/drivers-those who do know keep it to themselves.

If you put Rothenbach into Google maps it's over an hour away.

about 20 minutes away, not especially cheap but by golly do they look after you well. Took a small party over there for my 60th a few years ago.

There is more than one Rothenbach; put in the hotel, Ferienwohnung Sonneck, in Google Maps and it is about 10 minutes or so from the circuit.
