Circuit Reviews
Brands Hatch

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

The Kent circuit is visited by a huge variety of championships, including major European series DTM for the world's fastest touring cars, and the Blancpain GT Series for top-line sports car racing.

Top class national championships include the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, both of which hold their all-important closing rounds at the venue. Other major events include British GT and BRDC British F3, and the British Truck Racing Association Championship which visits twice, including the end of year fireworks spectacular, which has become one of the South East's biggest displays.

A series of motorsport festivals have also introduced the sport to new audiences, with the American Speedfest being one such recent success story, with a heady mix of epic action from European NASCAR racing and all-round festival fun.

Brands Hatch remains a mecca for historic racing too, with annual visits from the Masters Festival and the HSCC Legends of Brands Hatch Superprix, with historic F1 races an annual highlight.

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.

 

Brands Hatch boasts a history almost unrivalled by any other circuit. Racing has taken place at the venue since 1926, when grass track racing took place on an anti-clockwise layout, before the direction of the circuit was switched in 1954.

Countless legendary competitors have competed at the circuit in the decades since; Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Barry Sheene, Jack Brabham, Ayrton Senna, Jenson Button, Carl Fogarty and Lewis Hamilton are among those to have raced and won at Brands Hatch.

Nigel Mansell famous claimed his first Grand Prix victory here, also winning the final F1 World Championship race to be held at Brands Hatch in 1986. The circuit then became the spiritual home of the World Superbike Championship  in the 1990s and 2000s, attracting tens of thousands of fans, many of whom were following Fogarty as he took a stranglehold on the series, with his double win in 1995 delighting the home crowd.

The stands were full again when the circuit hosted the first A1 Grand Prix in 2005. Past winners of the Formula Ford Festival meanwhile have included Jenson Button and Mark Webber, with the festival continuing to be one of the biggest events of its kind today.

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 became one of few circuits in the world to stage an F1, Indycar and NASCAR event, the latter making its debut at the American SpeedFest with the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. International racing also continues to thrive with the Blancpain GT 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.
