Jenson Button to attend DTM at Brands Hatch this weekend!

Tuesday, May 15 2012

McLaren F1 star and 2009 World Champion Jenson Button will make a special guest appearance at this weekend's DTM event at Brands Hatch.

At 11.10am on Sunday (20 May), Jenson will briefly sign autographs for fans before taking part in a live question and answer session with ex-F1 star and current Mercedes DTM racer David Coulthard. This will take place in front of the Mercedes-Benz hospitality suite located in the public areas behind the Pit Straight grandstand.

Shortly afterwards, Button will take the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz DTM 'race taxi' with current DTM championship leader Gary Paffett alongside; the first time Button will have driven the circuit since his British F3 days in 1999.

"Brands Hatch is one of the circuits where I cut my teeth in junior single seaters and I have many fond memories of the place" said Button. "It's one of the greatest tracks in the world and a place with an awful lot of motorsport history.

"It's going to be a fantastic experience to head back to Brands Hatch to watch the DTM race on Sunday. I think the DTM weekend will be a great event - it's a fantastic series with some excellent, close racing and some of the best drivers in the world. It's going to be a great personal experience and a fantastic opportunity to get up-close and personal with all the British fans who have been supporting me over the years."
