Advance ticket holders will need to bring their original tickets to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted.

If you have advance tickets, please have them separated before arriving at the gate.

Grandstand seats 

Limited grandstand seating is available to purchase from the Megastore opposite the Kentagon restaurant on Saturday and Sunday.

Pit walk 

There is a pit walk on qualifying day (Saturday) at 13:15 and on main raceday (Sunday) at 11:35. Anyone intending to take part will need to arrive at the queuing point next to Paddock Hill grandstand a minimum of 15 minutes beforehand. Please note: There will be no admittance to the pit walk after 13:22 on Saturday and 11:42 on Sunday.

Weekend camping 

Camping will be available to purchase at the gate for £26 per person. Children aged 12 and under camp free. The campsite opens at midday Thursday before the event and will close at 21:00 on Sunday, after which time no facilities are available. Campers will be required to vacate the campsite by 12:00 Monday. Click here to download a camping guide for this event.

Live music 

The weekend also features live music on the campsite on Saturday evening, beginning at 6:30pm. The stage will be headlined by former World Superbike Champion James Toseland. The double WSB title-winner returns to the Kent track, the scene of his most memorable race wins.

Opening for Toseland, The Statesboro Revue will bring American southern blues rock to the heart of Brands Hatch. Formed in 2008, the band has toured extensively in both the US and Europe and has played with legendary acts such as Willie Nelson, the Los Lonely Boy and the Allman Brothers.

Admission will be free of charge to all valid MCE BSB ticketholders. A funfair plus, food and drink will also be located in the area.

Helmet and leather park 

For fans riding to the event there will be a helmet and leather park located adjacent to the main entrance gate.

Kentagon 

On Friday and Saturday night, dance the night away at the Kentagon Disco.

Britten's Parade 

The legendary Norton Manx Motorcycles will take pride of place on Britten's Parade, next to the Kentagon Restaurant, throughout the weekend. The combination of the double overhead cam engine of the Manx, melded with the revolutionary 'featherbed' frame, launched Norton to the very front of the Isle of Man TT race. The bike gained near mythical status in the hands of riders like Geoff Duke and Harold Daniel.

Stunt show 

Number 1 Freestyle stunt rider Lee Bowers will be performing at Brands Hatch during main Sunday raceday.
