Avoid the rush to leave - stay late with more to enjoy
We're expecting a big crowd and a great atmosphere on Sunday, and inevitably there will be high volumes of traffic leaving the venue as soon as the fireworks have finished. We've got plenty of post-fireworks attractions to keep you entertained while the crowds die down, with an extended funfair and live music into the evening in our the heated big top tent until 8pm. Click here for details.

Tickets
All advance sales have now closed and tickets are only available on the gate for the following prices:

Saturday: Adults £16, Teen (13-15) £10, Senior Citizens £13
Sunday: Adults £25, Teen (13-15) £15, Senior Citizens £19
Entry on both days is free to under 13s.

If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required.

In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the main MSV office at Brands Hatch.

Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, you can access them by logging on to your MSV account. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - you must have your e-tickets printed.

Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.

Grandstand seats
Grandstand seating is available in the Paddock Hill grandstand on Saturday for £5. On Sunday, Paddock Hill and Pit Straight grandstands are £15 and Hailwoods and Desire Wilson are £10 per person. Tickets are available from the Megastore, subject to availability.

Clearways Club ticket upgrades
Join us in the Clearways Club to watch all the track action and fireworks from the comfort of a shared suite in the MotorSport Vision Centre. Upgrade your ticket for £60 inc VAT per person (£30 for children under 16), with a free programme included. Book your upgrade at the Megastore by Paddock Hill Bend.

Programmes
Official event programmes are on sale from the main entrance gates, Chapmans Kiosk and the Megastore for £5. Each programme features in-depth articles on all the championships competing this weekend, along with entry lists and information on the racing timetable.

Children's Wristbands
As the event will be very busy, please pick up one of our FREE childrens' wristbands from the programme huts or the Megastore. Write your name and phone number on the wristband so we can contact you should your little one get lost.

Kids' glow products
We've got light-up wands, swords and glow sticks available from £1 in the Megastore, Chapman's kiosk and the big top tent.

Come and meet the drivers and get a FREE truck poster for them to sign, in the scrutineering bay in the paddock at midday on Sunday.

We'll bring another season of major events at Brands Hatch to a close on Sunday evening with a spectacular 'big bang' fireworks display following the close of track action and the show truck parade. Depending on levels of light, it will commence at some point after 5pm. The display will take place on Southbank - the elevated area opposite the pit straight grandstand - get yourself into a prime location!

After the fireworks
Once the fireworks display has finished, we have plenty more for you to enjoy, including live music in the heated big top tent until 8pm. The bar will remain open, and there will be candy floss available, as well as other food stalls, whilst the funfair will stay open late to ensure there are plenty more thrills to be had.
