Gate opening times
Public admission to the circuit is from 09:00 on Sunday.

Advance online ticket sales have now closed, but you can still pay on the gate at the following prices:

Adults £20, Teens (ages 13-15) £12, Seniors (ages 65 and above) £15
Children under 13 are free.

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, please login to your account and they can be accessed there. 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.

Parking at the venue is free of charge. Please follow signage and steward instructions for parking. Southbank is available for car parking for £5 per day. Please click here to download a pass.
