MSVR championships set for Grand Prix circuit race day

Monday, September 02 2019

MotorSport Vision Racing return to Brands Hatch this Saturday (7 September) for a day of diverse racing featuring muscle cars, sports cars and more. The busy one-day meeting will bring a host of series to the track as competitors race wheel-to-wheel on the world famous Grand Prix circuit. Please note, this is a separate event from Sunday's Ford Power Live.

A guest appearance this Saturday comes from Bernie's V8s, a series dedicated towards old school muscle and sports cars from the 1950s through to the early 1990s. Competing machinery must be powered by naturally aspirated engines partnered up to a non-sequential gearbox. This formula, which also denies the use of traction control and anti-lock brakes, keeps racing traditionally retro with drivers set to wrestle their brutes around the track.

Visitors will also witness racing from the Focus Cup Championship, a one make series catering for the Mk2 Ford Focus ST. With a pair of fifteen-minute races, this arrive and drive championship will be sure to entertain. Competitors pick a random number from a hat with each number reflecting a different vehicle to ensure a level playing field amongst competitors.

The Radical Challenge Championship will also get underway this Saturday for the penultimate round of their season. Competitors will get their day rolling with a 50-minute endurance race complete with a mandatory pit stop before embarking on a 20-minute dash to the chequered flag in their second race. Drivers will then bring the curtain down on the day's action with a third visit to the tarmac for another 50-minute endurance epic.

The MSVR Elise Trophy, the first series to be launched in conjunction with MotorSport Vision Racing, will bring a spectacular grid of vehicles to the Kent circuit. The championship boasts an impressive history with it once supporting numerous top class events including DTM, World Touring Cars and A1GP. The trophy promises a safe, friendly and fair environment for both first time racers and seasoned veterans alike whilst visiting some of the UK's top tracks such as Donington Park GP, Oulton Park, Brands Hatch GP and more.

Last but not least, MSVT's Trackday Trophy also appears on this weekend's racing timetable. Expect a wealth of production and production-based saloon, hatchback and sports cars taking on the sensational undulations of the Grand Prix circuit. Competitors will battle it out in a 45-minute race with a mandatory pit stop allowing two drivers to share a car. This helps to increase the fun but keep costs down!

Tickets for the MSVR Grand Prix Circuit Race Day at Brands Hatch are available for £12 until midday Wednesday 4 September or on the gate for £16 with free entry for children under 13. For more information, please call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
