2013 Festival highlights:
Masters Historic Festival (+ FIA Historic F1)
Brands Hatch (GP)
Saturday 24 - Sunday 25 May 2014

The Masters Historic Festival returns to Brands Hatch for its traditional Bank Holiday weekend of classic racing action. This year's event on Saturday and Sunday celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch, with several generations of F1 machinery set to be represented on track.

The FIA Historic Formula One Championship caters for evocative Grand Prix cars raced during the 60s, 70 and 80s and features stirring machinery from Williams, McLaren, Lotus, Tyrrell, Arrows and more.

The Historic Grand Prix Cars Association (HGPCA) features Grand Prix cars spanning half a century of motor racing, from the 1920s to the 1960s, covering the era of that debut Formula One event at Brands.
  
On the fabulous Grand Prix Circuit, spectators will be able to see these priceless examples pushed almost to the limit through the fast and flowing corners which, like the cars, remain virtually unchanged from when they originally raced at Brands in anger.

In addition to support races featuring monstrous sportscars and saloons, a number of other iconic F1 machines across all eras will be on display, together with a demonstration and parade in memory of Sir Jack Brabham featuring cars the legendary motor racing icon drove and built during his illustrious career.  PLEASE NOTE:Sunday is the main event day.

There will be festival fun all around the venue - click the 'ENTERTAINMENT' tab for details, or visit the dedicated Masters Festival website by clicking here.
