Brands Hatch GP, Great Britain
This July, our Track of the Month is the famous 2.4 mile Brands Hatch GP circuit, located in Kent.
Brands Hatch is one of the UK’s most recognized racetracks, with its dips, cambers, and fearsome corners, including the infamous Paddock Hill bend, combining for some enthralling racing.
Since the circuit’s creation in 1926, Brands Hatch has been host to its fair share of Motorsport, with Formula 1, Indycar, and the British Touring Cars just to name a few. The German DTM series also returned in August this year.
For several years, Brands Hatch has been the venue for both the season opener and season finale for the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). The series uses the shorter (Indy) circuit for the first event and the longer (GP) circuit for the latter.
Watch Mat Jackson set a lap record on the GP circuit back in 2015.
We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
