Brands Hatch in Kent is one of the best know British Racing Circuits and its 2 Circuit layouts: the Indy Circuit and Grand Prix are host to numerous Motor-sporting events. If you love adrenaline and would like to watch some outstanding races visit Brands Hatch this month for two spectacular events!
DTM (GERMAN TOURING CARS)
BRANDS HATCH (Indy Circuit)
FRIDAY 17 – SUNDAY 19 MAY 2013
DTM is the world’s most spectacular touring car series, with V8-powered racers representing Germany’s big three manufacturers: Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The cars may resemble their road-going equivalents but underneath are closer to Formula 1 machines! Bromley’s Gary Paffett will be out to avenge his 2012 championship defeat by just a single point, and victory at home will strengthen his bid to add a second DTM title to his collection. DTM remains a popular destination for Grand Prix drivers and Timo Glock is the latest to sign up for the series, whilst F1-style DRS and option tyres will spice up the action. It also attracts racing stars from all over the world to spectate – Brands Hatch will be the centre of the motorsport world at DTM this month!
MASTERS HISTORIC FESTIVAL (+ FIA HISTORIC F1)
The Masters Historic Festival returns to Brands Hatch at the end of May for its traditional Bank Holiday weekend of classic racing action, and this year two brand new FIA historic championships headlining the bill. The FIA Historic Formula One Championship caters for evocative Grand Prix cars raced during the 60s, 70 and 80s and featuring stirring machinery from the likes of Williams, McLaren, Lotus, Tyrrell and Arrows, all running in their period liveries, harking back to the days when Brands Hatch was a regular on the Formula One calendar. The FIA Historic Sports Car Championship recalls the 500 and 1000km endurance races from the same period, when spectacular Le Mans prototypes provided an equally thrilling spectacle.
If you wish to visit this iconic sporting venue and see some priceless machines being pushed almost to the limit, then book your weekend break with Thistle.
