Very detailed spectator information for this weekend race meeting at Brands Hatch is AVAILABLE HERE
The lower paddock area, which is our designated zone (see final instructions), will be available from 6PM on Thursday March 23rd. Please report to committee member Ken Angell and park as per instructions. As space is very limited at this meeting, please park sensibly, do not block access roads and do not bring in non-essential vehicles. There are other car parks for private cars and non-essential vehicles. Make sure your support vehicle registration number is written on your vehicle pass before you arrive.
It is just one week until our first meeting of the year. By now everyone who has entered should have received their E tickets and a vehicle pass. Make sure you print off your E tickets as soon as possible, so we know you have received them. Do not leave it until Thursday or Friday.
For those people who are unable to attend either day, there is a live commentary link via TSL: http://www.tsl-timing.com There will also be live timing during the weekend. Just click on “live timing” when the meeting details are displayed.
All three Championship Entry Lists for Brands Hatch, 25th-26th March 2017 are available to download from DOWNLOADS section. Entries are now closed.
It seems as though some drivers prefer one day meetings, whereas others like to make a full weekend of their racing. Some prefer racing on Saturdays whilst others prefer Sundays. Some drivers have suggested longer races. So in order to try and cater for all tastes we are trying out a bit of variety this year. The first race meeting will see Tin tops and Intermarque qualifying and racing on the Saturday. QMS will qualify on Saturday and have two races on Sunday. At Snetterton, in April, the QMS and Intermarque will qualify and race on Saturday, whilst the Tin Tops have their qualifying and races on the Sunday, but you won’t be the last race of the day.
In May the Tin tops will have a 30 minute non-championship pit stop race. This will be for either one or two drivers per car, your choice. If this proves successful we might add another 30 minute race later in the year at a different circuit. In June the Intermarque will have their races on the Sunday at the American speedfest meeting. This means that all three of our categories will get some Sunday races this year. Let the coordinators know what you think about this and hopefully we can keep the variety going in the second half of the year.
With regard to the paddock plan for March 25/26 at Brands Hatch, please note that the plan is different to previous truck meetings at Brands Hatch. This is because there is a high number of cars entered. Each team will only receive one vehicle pass. All private cars and non essential vehicles will be parked outside the paddock. Space is going to be very tight so we respectfully ask that you park sensibly and do not spread out too much. This is a high profile meeting and anyone not obeying requests from the paddock staff will be excluded from the meeting.
The BTRA Race Weekend on March 25/26 at Brands Hatch is approaching and you could have one of the best seats in the house to watch all the action!
The British Racing & Sports Car Club has one of its fantastic hospitality suites available for this race weekend that will allow you and your guests to view on-track activities from the comfort of your very own viewing point. The suite is located in the Brabham Stewart building and overlooks the pit straight and the entry to Paddock Hill Bend. Alongside this, you receive an incredible panoramic viewpoint of the entire Brands Hatch Indy circuit. Plus, there’s easy access to the paddock and pit lane should you wish to head across.
Inside the suite is equipped with all the amenities required to ensure your weekend runs smoothly for your guests, including:
- Refrigerator, microwave oven & full set of glassware and crockery
- Widescreen TV (useable for live timing, presentation, games console and more)
- Personal circuit commentary feed
- Free WiFi
In terms of catering, you are allowed to provide your own snacks (crisps, biscuits, cans of drink etc) or you can opt for a full service provided by MSV. If you were to choose the latter, this would have to be ordered through MSV separately.
With the timetable set to showcase a sensational display of motorsport, you can make sure your experience is enhanced thanks to your very own hospitality suite, exclusively yours for the weekend!
The price for the suite hire for this meeting would be £1,100 + VAT, giving you 28 tickets for both days and 14 car park passes to the hospitality car park. All this for the equivalent of approx. £39 per person – exceptional value!
Interest is generally high, so make sure you get in touch to secure the suite before anyone else!

With regard to dates we did try to get all our categories into Silverstone alongside the truck meeting. However, the meeting was cancelled and trucks are not going to Silverstone this year. An offer to go to Thruxton clashed with the Donington date. Securing track time has been a very difficult task.
The centre is considering running a 30 minute non-championship Tin Top race at Brands Hatch on May 29th. This will involve a pit stop, so you can have either one or two drivers per car. This is the same meeting where there will be one championship race for the QMS saloons. Again we are looking at the possibility of a second non-championship race for the QMS saloons as well.

Sad to say that Motorsport News will not be supporting our championship this year. We are extremely grateful for their sponsorship over many seasons, and it is purely due to the restructuring of their business that they have withdrawn.
