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.

Went to see a colleague racing Caterhams and was thoroughly impressed I have always enjoyed seeing Brands on the TV and it doesn't disappoint for real. The racing was varied and exciting. The entry really good value at £13 for a full day programme and some great views to be had around the circuit, with the Druids hairpin proving a favourite. We will return

We arrived here 4 days before the British Superbike Round so there was no real racing activity yet. Nevertheless we got free entrance at the gate and had the opportunity to take a look throughout the whole circuit and talk to some of the teams in their pit-boxes.

A great pass-by at only 40mins from Dover, nearby the M25/M20.

Tip: at the back of the circuit paddock there's a beautiful Ferrari garage (Foskers) as well..

The mini festival was great. The early drive and been reduced as a special so my parents surprised me with a go. Its great fun, and luckly, the instructors are very patient!!!!! Its great fun for all ages and the variety of things to do and races to watch is vast. Great place to go!

Went to Brands to see the American Speedfest and what a great days racing.Eleven races including Atoms, Pick up Trucks, V8s and Nascar.
Plenty of attractions off the track with American car club displays, Elvis Presley singing and Monster truck demonstrations.
Not bad for £18 admission
My advice is if you are going take your own food as the food and drink is grossly overpriced and not a very good standard.

Have visited BH many times over the years and each year is better than the last one. Facilities are constantly improving and the quality of food at the various outlets often exceeds expectations. Latest visit to the "American Festival" showed just what a race track can do. Signs were all updated with stars & stripes and allowing spectators free roving access to the stands was brilliant. I realise this may not be practical for a BTCC or British Superbikes event with their huge crowds but it made the day so much better for my nine year old grandson. Giving free admission to under 13's is ideal it gets them interested in the sport and hopefully they keep going as they get older. For parents it is a full day's entertainment and very family friendly. World class competitors can be seen in action with a family paying less than one person would pay to see an hour and a half of Premier League football and in a less intimidating atmosphere. Free access to the Paddock where you can speak to drivers and mechanics is an added bonus. The incredibly knowledgable commentators help make the day and if you find it hard to hear the PA over the noise of the racing just tune in FM radio with an ear piece (use your 'phone) and you are sorted. Take a picnic on a summer's day and life could not be better than that!
