Circuit Reviews
Brands Hatch

One of the world's most iconic sporting venues, Brands Hatch plays host to a multitude of prestigious motorsport events on both two and four wheels.

Brands Hatch is visited by a multitude of top class national championships including the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship and Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, both of which will hold their 2014 opening and closing rounds here. Other big events including British F3/GT, the Masters and Historic Superprix nostalgic meetings, the British Truck Championship and many club car and bike meetings. In 2014 The circuit will welcome a new International event in the Blancpain Sprint Series, bringing top draw sportscar racing back to the venue for the first time since 1996.

Brands Hatch will again host festivals for the Mini and Lotus marques in 2014, with the NASCAR-headlined American SpeedFest II also set to star, promising to be bigger and better than the inaugural event! 

A natural amphitheatre offering unrivalled views of the action from various vantage points, Brands Hatch is known as Britain's best loved motor racing circuit. And you can experience it for yourself with a renowned programme of driving experiences and trackdays on offer.

 

There has been a race track at Brands since 1926, when the land was first used for grass track bike racing. In those days, competitors ran anti-clockwise, but the direction of the circuit was switched in 1954.

The heritage of Brands is vast - name any famous driver from the last 50 years or so and they are bound to have cut their teeth racing here. Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Barry Sheene, Jack Brabham, Ayrton Senna and Jenson Button are among the countless drivers to have raced and won at Brands over the years.

Nigel Mansell scored his first Grand Prix victory there, also winning the final F1 race at Brands in 1986. The circuit became the spiritual home of the World Superbike Championship in the 1990s and 2000s, and hosted the first A1 Grand Prix in 2005. Past winners of the Formula Ford Festival meanwhile have included Jenson Button and Mark Webber. Brands Hatch continues to make history, with the Road Cycling events at the 2012 Paralympic Games based at the Kent circuit proving a huge success, with Alex Zanardi's performances voted as the number one moment of the 2012 Paralympic Games by the International Paralympic Committee. In 2013 it becomes one of few circuits to stage an F1, Indycar and NASCAR event, the latter making its debut at the American SpeedFest with the European Touring series.

Brands Hatch's unique combination of dips, cambers, fearsome corners and hills means it is still one of the world's favourite racing circuits, and continues to go from strength to strength.
