The ride, organised by TJ Motorsport, saw 370 cyclists take to the track which is more used to British Touring cars and motorbikes flying round it.

Riders paid a £10 entrance fee while also taking part in other fundraising events hosted in the grounds.

In total £3,955 was raised for Norfolk charities including East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH), Norfolk Accident Rescue Service and The Benjamin Foundation.

Riders of all abilities were invited to lap the three-mile circuit as many times as they could.

Trevor Griffiths, from TJ Motorsport, said: “Everyone at TJ Motorsport would like to thanks to all who took part and the good friends that helped on the evening. Also a big thanks to all at Snetterton Circuit for making it possible.”

Previous rides have raised more than £4,000.
