Support line-up for Brands Hatch DTM meeting confirmed

Thursday, June 14 2018

The all-new Audi Sport Seyffarth R8 LMS Cup and the MINI CHALLENGE will feature on the support bill at this August's DTM event at Brands Hatch, which for the first time runs on the full Grand Prix circuit configuration.

DTM returns to Brands Hatch after a five-year absence and both of the support categories will race twice across the weekend (11-12 August), with a race on the Saturday and Sunday for the Audi R8s, and two races on the Sunday for the MINIs to complete a high-quality, six-race line-up.

The R8 LMS Cup features examples of the German manufacturer's R8 LMS GT4 cars doing battle in the series across Europe. These evenly-matched cars will fight it out in a pair of half-hour races across the weekend, showcasing some of the finest machinery that the Audi marque has to offer.

MINI CHALLENGE will entertain with two races from its top-tier JCW class. The MINI CHALLENGE is one of the UK's leading one-make tin-top championships and it is home to some of the fastest racing saloon cars you'll see in this country.

These support series will serve as a superb accompaniment to the weekend's two headline DTM races, which will showcase the world's fastest and most technically advanced racing saloons. Star drivers including Paul Di Resta, Timo Glock and Jamie Green will represent top manufacturers Mercedes-AMG, BMW and Audi in two 55-minute (+ one lap) races, with an outing on each day.

 The full timetable, which will include additional activity including demonstrations, will be unveiled soon.

Tickets for the DTM event at Brands Hatch, featuring the Audi Sport Seyffarth R8 LMS Cup and MINI CHALLENGE, are available online in advance from £30 with free entry for under 13s. For more information, please call 0843 453 9000 or visit https://brandshatch.msv.com/BH-18-DTM
