There has been a race track at Brands since 1926, when the land was first used for grass track bike racing. In those days, competitors ran anti-clockwise, but the direction of the circuit was switched in 1954. The heritage of Brands is vast – name any famous driver from the last 50 years or so and they are bound to have cut their teeth racing here. Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Barry Sheene, Jack Brabham, Ayrton Senna and Jenson Button are among the countless drivers to have raced and won at Brands over the years. Nigel Mansell scored his first Grand Prix victory there, also winning the final F1 race at Brands in 1986. The circuit became the spiritual home of the World Superbike Championship in the 1990s and 2000s, and hosted the first A1 Grand Prix in 2005.

The Formula Ford Festival continues to be an important event on an aspiring driver\’s CV and past winners have included Jenson Button and Mark Webber. Brands Hatch continues to make history, with the road cycling events at the 2012 Paralympic Games based at the Kent circuit proving a huge success, with Alex Zanardi\’s performances voted as the number one moment of the 2012 Paralympic Games by the International Paralympic Committee. Brands Hatch\’s unique combination of dips, cambers, fearsome corners and hills means it is still one of the world\’s favourite racing circuits, and continues to go from strength to strength.

One of the world\’s most iconic motor racing venues, Brands Hatch plays host to some of the most prestigious events in motorsport on both two and four wheels. In addition to hosting top international meetings such as the DTM, Brands Hatch is also visited by the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship and Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, both of which will hold their 2013 opening and closing rounds here. Other big events including the British F3/GT Championships, the Masters and Historic Superprix nostalgic meetings, the British Truck Championship and many club car and bike meetings.

Brands Hatch will again host festivals for the Mini and Lotus marques in 2013, the Mini Festival returning after a successful first year in 2012. Brands Hatch was also heavily involved in London 2012 and as well as being part of the Olympic torch route and a training ground for athletes, hosted the extremely successful Paralympic road cycling events which saw Dame Sarah Storey equal the British gold medal record as well as seeing ex-racing driver Alex Zanardi secure two golds and one silver for Italy. A natural amphitheatre, Brands Hatch is located 20 miles outside Central London, just off the M25.
