Tense F3 and GT title battles head to Brands Hatch this August

Tuesday, July 30 2013

The Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series and Avon Tyres British GT Championship title fights are heating up as both head to Brands Hatch next weekend (10/11 August). A bumper field of supercars is expected as the GT series returns from its summer break, whilst the F3 drivers will take part in their second race in a week.

Wins for each of the F3 championship's top three at Spa-Francorchamps last weekend has left title leader Will Buller leading fellow Briton Jordan King and Double R's Antonio Giovinazzi, with just 33 points covering the trio and 25 on offer for a race win. The British F3 title is one of the most coveted in motorsport, with former champion Daniel Ricciardo currently in the frame for a Red Bull F1 drive.

F3GTThe Brands Hatch round takes place on the Grand Prix circuit and is certain to provide one of the biggest challenges of the season. Next weekend presents the final opportunity to see the championship in the UK before an extended calendar of events returns in 2014.

British F3 will co-headline the event with the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, where an incredibly tight title race resumes after the summer break. Just half a point separates the top two crews, with Nick Tandy and David Ashburn heading Matt Bell and Mark Patterson. Ten points covers the first five teams, which represent the Porsche, Audi, BMW and Aston Martin marques.

The grid, which is one of the strongest in years, also features cars from McLaren, Ferrari, Mercedes and Ginetta amongst others. The two hour race on the Grand Prix circuit is expected to be one of the closest-fought of the season, with the last two years' races being particularly memorable!

The event also features racing from the Ginetta GT5 Challenge, VW Racing Cup, Caterham R300 Championship and Champion of Brands for classic Formula Ford single seaters.

Tickets for the British F3 and GT Championships at Brands Hatch on 10/11 August are available from £18, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
