About the Event
The UK’s much loved and well established tuning show returns to Snetterton for the first time since 2013 and represents the second of our Modified Live events this season.
Following the popularity of holding the event at Snetterton previously, organisers have chosen to bring Modified Live back to the venue. As before, the event shares the occasion with the always spectacular and highly competitive Time Attack Championship – this combination of on-track action and off-track spectacle setting Modified Live apart from other tuning shows.
We’re therefore anticipating a truly memorable occasion for everyone involved, even though it will look a bit different this time around in order to mitigate and control any transmission of the Coronavirus.
In the paddock, Modified Live features displays from car clubs, individual exhibits, trade stands, plus a range of other attractions and activities that take place throughout the day. There’s also the ever-popular Show and Shine competition, which is as much about modification and performance as it is a great paint job.
And of course, don’t miss the must-see, non-stop action on the circuit, with its flat-out straights and corners that favour the brave making it one of the most demanding circuits in the UK on both the cars and the drivers.
Today’s Time Attack competition represents the fifth round of this year’s Championship. You will see four runs of each class during the day: Warm-up, Practice, Qualifying and the Final. The entry is then split into three sessions for the various classes: Session one is for the Clubman Classes for cars that are close to standard specification and Pocket Rocket for smaller cars and hot hatches.
Session two comprises the Club Classes for tuned 2WD and 4WD cars, with session three featuring the awesome Pro Classes, where the highly modified and infinitely more powerful and spectacular machines demonstrate the ultimate in automotive tuning – all of them battling to set a faster lap than their category rivals.
Be in no doubt that there’s some serious machinery in operation today running in the Pro classes. In fact, there just aren’t enough adjectives to describe them – especially those that are turning out over 1000hp! Whilst in the Club classes, you’ll see road specification cars that are tuned and driven like you’ve never seen them before.
Introduced in 2019, ‘Run What You Brung’ Time Attack makes a return. This innovative addition is where owners can literally run what they own and find out what it’s like to drive against the clock in controlled and competitive conditions, without the stresses, strains – and costs – of regular motorsport.
Adding to the all-day circuit action are demonstrations that take place in between the competitive sessions. These are set to include a collection of awesome sounding F1 and F3000 cars and Drift demonstrations – both rare sights indeed at Snetterton

Snetterton circuit is one of the UK’s finest motor racing facilities, not just for competitors but for spectators too. Owing to its extensive redevelopment in 2011, Snetterton blends a challenging and complex layout with fast straights to create a unique challenge – much of which can be viewed from raised viewing banks which offer some of the best viewing areas in the country.
The Modified Live Show is Snetterton’s largest car show and takes advantage of the venue’s family and spectator friendly surroundings.
