Local couple enjoys Valentine’s lunch in the Kentagon

Wednesday, February 14 2018

Virginia and Sean Hickman, who live in nearby Horton Kirby celebrated Valentine's Day by enjoying a romantic meal for two in Brands Hatch's famous Kentagon restaurant this afternoon.

The couple won the opportunity for the complimentary meal, after Virginia entered a competition on the Kent circuit's Facebook page. The table was specially prepared for the occasion, with Valentine's embellishments, including red roses and a bottle of bubbly.

The pair were presented with a special 'off-menu' three-course meal by Kentagon staff to celebrate their afternoon together.

Virginia, who originally hails from the US state of the same name, moved to the UK 30 years ago, and married Cornwall native Sean in Greenwich in 2000.  The couple have been attending events at Brands Hatch since 2001, and moved from Chislehurst to local Horton Kirby just six years ago.

Virginia said: "Thanks for choosing my entry! We love sports and all aspects of motorsport.  We both watch all F1 races on TV and Sean is interested in Superbikes whereas I love NASCAR and we're looking forward to the American SpeedFest this summer!

"We moved from Chislehurst to Horton Kirby six years ago, and walked to Brands Hatch to watch the Paralympic cycling in 2012. We are neighbours and love the sound of the vehicles on the track!"

The Kentagon will be open throughout all major events at Brands Hatch throughout 2018, including rounds of the British Touring Car Championship and Bennetts British Superbike Championship. And, you can expect the menu to change a little for themed weekends such as American SpeedFest and Festival Italia.
