2024 Snetterton Stages

https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjBdF7v

Initial selection from yesterday; lots more to work through. Focus on the Chris West 306 Maxi for a possible PistonClick article. Good to see the car back out.

That 306 is an absolute weapon isn't it? He used it a Goodwood back in December as a "shakedown", presumably Snetterton was more of the same ahead of the asphalt championship - I think that's the focus this year for Chris? I watched some of the Special Stage coverage and they mentioned that he was driving with an injured knee following a crash testing Dan Corners car on the road between Christmas and new year.

I've not been to Snetterton to watch a rally - what's the viewing like? Are there many areas you can get shots of the cars not on the actual circuit?

Yes, I didn't go there but they use a section on the infield at the Bombhole / Coram end of the circuit. Plus they do a bit in and around the paddock. No access round the outside from Bombhole this time. It's not the Belgian Rally Championship but its a lot closer to home

Another nice set. I caught the tail end of the live coverage yesterday and wondered what the opportunities were like for photos.

Goes without saying, but love the 306!

It is not a great place to watch, mainly using the track and the odd bit of infield, I have seen pics of a small loose section which is nice, but it is now a shame for me the R5's have taken over, Westy was fairly quick everywhere in that car a few years ago, probably the favourite at most venues.. He was amazing at Donington in the wet a few years ago.

And it is far form a 306 I think, it uses a version of a Millington i think!!

It is what it is for photos - it's a modern race track but thankfully with little in the way of fences (although it looks like some new fence on the outside of Coram) and a lot closer to Milton Keynes than Yorkshire or Wales. Wasn't originally going to go to the paddock area but the head on shots there probably give as good a sense of speed as any.
306 engine quoted as Smith & Jones in the past.

I haven't been to Snetterton for a few years, but last time I went there still seemed to be quite a few areas with low fences. Sounds like you still have a few usable spots there.
