A natural amphitheatre offering unrivalled views of the action from various vantage points, Brands Hatch is known as one of Britain’s best loved motor racing circuit. Its unique combination of dips, cambers, fearsome corners and hills means it is still one of the world’s best renowned racing venues. The BTCC has been going to Brands Hatch since the series began back in 1958.
The BTCC visits Brands Hatch for both the season opener on the action packed Indy circuit as well as the season finale which takes place on the majestic Grand Prix circuit. The historic Kent race track has seen some spectacular BTCC action over the many years the championship has been visiting, and was the scene of last year’s nail-biting finale which saw Andrew Jordan crowned as the newest BTCC champion. In 2014, Brands Hatch is set to bookend what once again promises to be an incredible year of racing in the BTCC.
