The 2CV race that will not take your breath away

They have been unkindly compared to garden sheds on wheels, but racing Citroen 2CVs is a serious business.

This year, 25 competitors entered the 20th annual 24-hour race at Snetterton in Norfolk. It lacks the big budgets and fast cars of its more illustrious Le Mans counterpart, but its competitors will tell you it is a real test of driving skill.

The RB Racing team eventually won the 738-lap race, recording a fastest lap of just over 53 miles per hour along the way.
