BRANDS HATCH TRACK DAY INFORMATION
Brands Hatch is a well-loved circuit by track day and race enthusiasts from all over. Brands is generally seen as the jewel of Jonathan Palmer’s portfolio and provides a great venue for circuit days.
The first turn, Paddock Hill, is epic. Difficult on entry due to a crest and with the exit falling away from underneath the car, it ensures a fast, roller-coaster ride of a corner. The Brands Hatch Indy circuit is the most popular for track days, it’s tight and technical, and at only 1.2 miles is difficult to make up time on.
The Grand Prix Circuit at Brands is sadly seldom used for track days, but is a fantastic circuit. At 2.6 miles it is a lot longer than the Indy, and a lot faster too. Corners such as Hawthorn and Clark curves take lots of courage from all track day drivers.
HISTORY: The GP circuit was constructed in 1959, with the first GP taking place in 1964. The circuit was sold to Jonathan Palmer in 2004, who has brought some great motorsport series back to Brands Hatch.
SUMMARY: Brands Hatch is an excellent circuit for track days. Both circuits are technically difficult and the walls are relatively close, but this should be well within the skills of any experienced circuit driver.
