Sabres at Snetterton

Post by heathsabre » Tue Sep 13, 2016 10:47 am

"Team Slice", comprising the Sabre Six cars of John Leslie, Iain Daniels, John Devlin and Luke Wos, will be racing at Snetterton on the 2nd October in the British Motor Heritage 4 hour Classic Relay Race. One or both of us will be there to cheer them on.

Fabulous photos Dave. It was a great day and the Sabres acquitted themselves very well. Watch out for what is bound to be a really special article by the competitors in Slice.

Cracking pics, Dave! There was more than one "off" then! I haven't been to Snetterton since the late'80's, it has changed a lot - for the better. :goodpost:

Cheers! I like Snetterton as its possible to get good photos without needing a 6 foot zoom lens like some of the other circuits! :lol:
