Brands Hatch has revealed 13 headline events for the 2011 motorsport season, featuring a hat-trick of British Superbike meetings and three major international championships.
Two wheel fans can enjoy even more track action from the UK’s premier domestic bike championship next year, as the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship will visit the Kent circuit on three occasions – including a four day season opening event over Easter weekend. BSB will also take to the Grand Prix circuit during August, whilst the title-deciding round will return to Brands Hatch for the first time since 2008 in October.
Brands Hatch will host three major international car championships in 2010, beginning with a double headline event from the FIA Formula Two Championship and the Spanish-based International GT Open Series in July, featuring an exciting mix of future F1 stars and million-pound supercars. The flame-spitting DTM German Touring Cars will also visit Kent for the championship’s only UK round at the beginning of September.
After enjoying record crowds during its visit to the south east in 2010, the British Touring Car Championship will enjoy a brace of visits to Brands Hatch in 2011, including its season opener in early April. The BTCC will return to Kent in October for a second showdown on the Grand Prix circuit.
2011 will feature the return of several calendar favourites, such as the opening and closing rounds of the 2011 Delphi British Truck Racing Championship and two major historic race meetings: the Masters Festival over late May Bank Holiday and the HSCC Superprix in June.
The British F3 and GT Championships will roar into Kent in June, followed ten days later by the Modified Live performance car show, which has been expanded to a two day event next season.
