Charity Sporting Events returns to Snetterton on November 23 for its passenger ride and charity motor show, giving motorsport fans another chance to speed their way around the circuit in support of five local charities.

People will have the chance to experience three laps round the circuit in a range of cars including everything from Porsches and Ferraris, to household names such as Fords and Citroens.

Organiser Shawn Taylor said his team had to work 'night and day' to get the event up and running, with money going to the British Heart Foundation, Big C Cancer, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) and Norfolk Accident and Rescue Service (NARS).

'We're thrilled to be back this year and it's always a great event.

This year's event will be the first time it has taken place on Snetterton's 300 circuit, allowing for a longer lap in the cars.
