Brands Hatch GP circuit set for historic extravaganza this July

Monday, June 13 2016

The Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) will celebrate its 50th anniversary in style with an expanded three-day Legends of Brands Hatch Superprix on 1-3 July with nostalgic race action on the Grand Prix circuit, special demonstrations and off-track attractions.

The race line-up will feature many star cars from the club's past, including many which raced in-period at the Kent circuit during its 90-year history. Highlights will include stunning classically-modelled Grand Prix cars from the '60s, tin tops and GTs from the '70s, and Super Touring Cars from the British Touring Car Championship's most celebrated era - the 1990s!

The event will be headlined by the revived Historic Race of Champions, recalling the venue's past as the host of one of the world's most prestigious non-championship F1 races. A special selection of high-powered single-seaters is expected to compete, including specially invited Grand Prix cars and powerful Formula 5000 V8s.  

Older classically-modelled F1 cars will return with the Historic Grand Prix Car Association, which will recreate the mid-'60s era in which Kent first hosted World Championship racing. Famous cars from Lotus, Cooper, and Brabham will appear, resplendent in period liveries, devoid of modern day sponsorship stickers.

More recent history will be recreated too, with the pulsating Super Touring Car battles of the '90s set to rage again with a field of manufacturer-prepared saloon cars. You can expect to see plenty of close racing here from evenly matched saloon cars built by Honda, Ford, Vauxhall, BMW, Peugeot, and many others, plus, there could be a number of past legends such as John Cleland and Patrick Watts in action too.

Additionally, there will be plenty of other races for classic single-seaters, GTs, and touring cars, ensuring that there will be plenty for fans to enjoy across all three days.

Tickets for the Legends of the Brands Hatch Superprix at Brands Hatch on 1-3 July are available online in advance from £19, with 13-15-year-old tickets for £12, and free entry for under-13s. For more information, please call 0843 453 9000 or click here
