2011 WINNERS

CONGRATULATIONS – The overall 2011 Thoroughbred Championship went to Simon Garrad in his D Type Replica.   

A last minute glitch when it was noted that extra points should be awarded as it was the first time the Championship had raced on the new Snetterton 200 track.  A quick recalculation of all the points but the win went to Simon after a great season of competitive racing.

Jerry Knight in his similar car was second and Rob Spencer in his MGB GTV8 came third.

The two day event was one of the hottest weekends of the year, 28 degrees at its peak on Saturday.
