Olympic star swaps two wheels for four at Brands Hatch

Are you lost without the Olympics? Is there a big void in your life now there’s nothing to watch on telly?

Don’t despair, you can still get a chance to see a six-time Olympic Gold Medallist at Brands Hatch this weekend – 27-28 August.

Okay, so he won’t be on two wheels, but Jason Kenny is set to race in the Radical Challenge Championship on the full Grand Prix circuit at Brands.

Swapping his two wheels for a Radical SR3 RSX, Jason will take part in the two 20-minute Radical Challenge races on Saturday and a 40-minute race with a pitstop on Sunday.

The races are part of the supporting programme for the Lotus Festival, which includes Formula 1 car demonstrations and Lotus-themed racing and displays.

Jason will also be back at Brands Hatch on 10-11 September to take part in the Revolve24 cycling challenge event.

Tickets for the Lotus Festival at Brands Hatch are available in advance from £10, with free entry for under-13s. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or visit
