50 days to go until Blancpain GT Sprint Cup at Brands Hatch

Friday, March 16 2018

There are just 50 days to go until Brands Hatch will be full to the brim with stunning supercars to celebrate the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup on 5/6 May.

The highlight of the weekend will be two one-hour races from a grid full of the finest cars on the planet. With representation from Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus and Mercedes and some of the world's best GT drivers, these incredible machines will be tested to their limits on the full Grand Prix circuit.

The supporting races are filled with exotica too, with the GT4 European Series Northern Cup featuring cars from marques including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Maserati, McLaren, Mercedes, Nissan and Porsche. The latter is also represented in the Porsche Club Championship races, and there's further action from the 7 Race Series for Caterham sports cars.

The sports and supercar theme continues with a huge off-track display of evocative machinery courtesy of Supercar Siege, which is aiming to have 500 cars on show. The organisation has previously raised funds for charity through the event and this year all proceeds from their activities will go to the Royal Navy and Royal Marine Children's Fund. Visitors will also be able to get on board some of the cars for passenger rides in return for a donation, courtesy of the Sporting Bears charity.

In addition to the displays, Supercar Siege will also stage breathtaking lunchtime Hypercar demonstrations on the GP circuit. Last year's mouth-watering selection included a gathering of cars from bespoke manufacturers Koenigsegg, McLaren and the rare Porsche 918 hybrid.

Off-track entertainment at the event will also include a funfair, Diggerland, children's playground and go-karting.
