Me and the other half, and her family attended a thundersport weekend, this weekend. It was run like clockwork, the facilities and staff are great, the food is expensive, but we expected that. Other than that everything was great!

Just steer clear of Fast Lane. Opted for grilled chicken on chibatia served with lettuce and mayonnaise. Got turkey twirler in a burger bun with no mayonnaise. Coffee machines were all off and got instant! Just dreadful, the kind of food we,d left behind years ago.

The best thing about Brands Hatch is getting close to the action at Paddock Hill bend or at Druids. Since Jonathan Palmer took over, the facilities have improved, and it's generally clean and well looked after. Parking is usually well organised, and they even supply stands if you come by bike. The food in the Hailwood bar and the Kentagon... More

Well, not quite the home anymore, but there are still great events staged at this iconic race track. Great to watch the historic F1 cars with those roaring engines harking back to a time when you could close your eyes and almost correctly guess each time which specific car was coming towards you. Whether you're sitting in the Desire Wilson... More

Firstly, Brands Hatch I'd an amazing circuit with large straights and an amazing downhill section at the start of the lap! Prices are fairly good (apart from pretty much no black Friday deal 👹). Apart from that though, Brands Hatch is an incredible circuit, worthy of the last 3 rounds. This year's Btcc was won by Gordon Shedden, who battled... More

Brands Hatch has been in existence since 1927, and at one time used to hold the British Grand Prix. Depending on the type of racing, there is the smaller circuit which is used more frequently, or can be extended for other races. We were in our own corporate box so were watch the motor racing with ease. Brands Hatch is... More

First time truck racing at Brands Hatch & it was great, will definitely be watching it again next year. Disappointed that you need to pay extra to sit in the stands but all in all a well run & organised event, shame it was soo cold but that's not their fault.

1st time at brands hatch, despite the bitter cold we all had fun. We are not followers of any of the championships so maybe ticket prices were at the upper limit for a 'family day out'. The day we went was for the British truck racing, but they also had plenty of other races in between. Food was expensive, probably... More
