totalkitcar LIVE returns to Brands Hatch this November

Thursday, February 20 2014

Britain's vibrant and varied kit car industry will be celebrated at Brands Hatch this November (Saturday 15) with the return of totalkitcar LIVE to the Kent venue.

The event heads back to Brands Hatch for the first time in seven years, offering visitors the chance to see Britain's best kit cars close-up as well as being put through their paces on the track.

Unlike most motor shows, where manufacturers display static cars that prospective buyers can only sit in, totalkitcar LIVE will make full use of the 1.2-mile Brands Hatch Indy circuit. Visitors will be able to book passenger rides to get the best view of the cars as their power and handling capabilities are put to the test.

The kit car industry is one in which Britain thrives, with many companies producing a wide variety of vehicles. From replicas to original ideas, with several leading manufacturers attending the event, there will be plenty for motoring enthusiasts to enjoy.

The event is also hugely popular with enthusiasts' organisations, and previous events have included stands and displays of owners' cars. Visitors will be able to chat to builders and owners about their vehicles and benefit from a support community. Kit car clubs across the country are invited to take part by contacting steve@tkcmag.com

Steve Hole, Editor of totalkitcar magazine, said: "We are absolutely delighted to be bringing totalkitcar LIVE back to its spiritual home, Brands Hatch, a venue much-loved by the kitcar fraternity. The event was born at Brands Hatch and it really is the spiritual home and during the three previous events around 200 kits were sold as a direct result of totalkitcar LIVE, not to mention sales achieved post-events. We heard stories of people coming to look at a particular type of kit car and going home having ordered something completely different! That's what makes totalkitcar LIVE such a great shop window and with the return to Brands Hatch and the chance to work once more with Jonathan Palmer and his team is one that we all relish. Roll on November!"

David Willey, MSV's Motorsport Events Manager, said: "It's fantastic to have totalkitcar LIVE returning to Brands Hatch, and we very much look forward to welcoming the kitcar fraternity this November. The event will produce a fascinating array of truly affordable machinery, and totalkitcar Live will be the 'one-stop-shop' for both the prospective kitcar owner and experienced kitcar enthusiast. Steve has done a great job with previous events and working together, with the enthusiastic and professional backing of totalkitcar magazine, we're sure that this year's event will be bigger and better than before."
