TJ Motorsport’s Charity Cycle Snetterton evening raised £3,955 for EACH’s The Nook Appeal, NARS (Norfolk Accident Rescue Service), and The Benjamin Foundation.
Around 370 cyclists of all ages and abilities took part in the event lapping the three mile circuit as many times as possible on the evening of Friday, September 28, for two and a half hours.
Riders paid a £10 entry fee with children under five getting in for free.
