Snetterton began life as an RAF airfield, opening in 1943, later used by the United States Army Air Force. By 1948 the airfield had closed, and in 1951 the first racing events were held, after the Aston Martin Owners Club had approached local landowner Fred Riches for permission to stage races.

Originally, the circuit featured the long ‘Norwich Straight’ which headed in the direction of the present-day junction on the A11, but in 1973 the circuit was shortened to exclude this section, with the Revett straight running eastwards to connect Sear corner directly to The Esses.

Over the next three-and-a-half decades tweaks were mostly limited to the final chicane, before in 2010 an entirely new infield section was built, looping from the former Sear corner.

This extended the circuit length from 3.1 km to 4.78 km, and made Snetterton the second-longest circuit in the UK. The old 1970s to 2000s layout is mostly still intact, now known as ‘Snetterton 200’.
