SPECIAL OPEN TROPHY

Welcome to the Special Open Trophy race event at Snetterton 300

today.

The Special Open Trophy (SOT) is a BeNeLux series for sport proto

types, CN sports cars and open cars, regulated by the Belgium

Federation RACB Sport and controlled by the FIA. With 73 marks

and 143 accepted types of cars the Special Open Trophy starts its

third season in 2012. Snetterton is the third event of the season

for the SOT after the sprint races in Spa Francorchamps and an

endurance race in Zolder.

Special Open Trophy

Last season, during the final SOT race at Assen (Netherlands) we

spoke with all the teams concerning a race weekend in England.

After Spa Francorchamps and Zolder, the Snetterton racetrack was

voted as one of the favorite circuits by the drivers and so we are

delighted to come to Norfolk in the 2012 SOT season.

Each round is a combination of 1 endurance race of 160 minutes

and 3 sprint races of 20 minutes. Most of the teams consist of 3

drivers, with 2 of the drivers taking part in the endurance race and

the third driver participating in the sprint races.

The SOT is a series for gentlemen drivers that has seen growth

every season. Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg have a

very strong history with GT and Touring cars but in proto’s and

CN cars we still have to learn a lot. Most of our teams bought their

car in the UK or France, where you can find a lot of these kinds of

championships. Westfield, Caterham, Ligier, Norma, Radical were

unknown in Belgium until 2010, and now the number of these

cars racing grows every week.

The Special Open Trophy is definitely in for a great third season,

because this series is synonymous with “Racing for Fun”. A

competition where every driver feels great, a competition where

every driver feels that he or she is appreciated!

We very much hope you enjoy the racing at Snetterton today, and

thank you for making us feel very welcome. Thank you also to all of

the marshals who are supporting this event today. Your assistance

is very much appreciated in helping us making our first ever UK

event a success!
