A packed programme of motorsport, plus monster truck rides, an air display and truck parade will be held on September 13 and 14.

The event will be headlined by the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC), which features trucks with 1,000 horsepower engines which can out-accelerate a sportscar and hit speeds of 100mph on the straights.

With just two rounds to go after Snetterton, the BTRC title battle has just one point separating reigning champion Mat Summerfield from Chris Levett in Division One.

Six points separate leaders Simon Reid and Ryan Smith in Division Two, in which Bungay's Jim Bennett is set to make his season debut at Snetterton.

A Snetterton spokesman said: 'Both classes compete together on the track and a reverse-grid format, where the fastest trucks start from the back, guarantees plenty of overtaking on the Snetterton 300 circuit with its combination of high speed straights and challenging corners.

'Fans will miss none of the action from the venue's panoramic spectator banks.
