The circuit located in Kent County, some 30 kilometres to the south of London, makes the heart of every motor racer beat faster. Brands Hatch stands for history and British motor racing at its best. Back in 1925, the first motor-bike races were held at Brands Hatch on a grass circuit. Legends such as Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, James Hunt or Ayrton Senna already celebrated race wins at the time-honoured motor-racing venue. From 1964 to 1986, Brands Hatch also staged 14 Formula One GPs and from 2006 to 2013 eight DTM races. In those years, the races were held at the 1.973-kilometres. In 2018, DTM returned to Brands Hatch. This time, however, the touring-car series held its races at the 3.908-kilometre rollercoaster across a woodland scenery and is regarded as extremely challenging for both cars and drivers.
The DTM carries out two races on all race weekends. The distance is always 55 minutes plus one lap.
W Series, the brand-new single-seater racing championship for female drivers only will race exclusively on the DTM platform in 2019.
The Lotus Cup Europe is the globally leading championship for Lotus vehicles. The races usually are contested by more than 30 cars in several categories.
Since the first race in 1966, the Mini‘s & Miglias excite the crowd, especially due to the large amount of overtaking manoeuvres.
