A driver died of "multiple injuries" after his vintage car crashed into barriers at a Norfolk race circuit, an inquest has heard.

Stephen Jewell, 63, from Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, was in a 1924 Bugatti T35B when it crashed at Snetterton Circuit on Sunday.

Norfolk Coroner's Court heard Mr Jewell was thrown from his vehicle and later died in hospital.

The inquest was adjourned until a later date.

The crash happened during practice for the Seaman Memorial Trophies race meeting organised by the Vintage Sports-Car Club (VSCC).

The Motor Sports Association said it, along with the VSCC and MotorSport Vision - the circuit's owners - "extend their deepest sympathies to Mr Jewell's family and friends".

The chief executive of the VSCC, Mike Stripe, said: "Stephen was an experienced competitor in many disciplines and well known within the motorsport community.

"The club offers its sincere condolences to all of Stephen's family and friends following this tragic incident."

The Health and Safety Executive said it would be investigating.
