F2 delivers fantastic weekend of racing at Brands Hatch

Wednesday, July 27 2011

The Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit produced a thrilling weekend of motor sport last weekend (23/24 July), headlined by rounds nine and ten of the FIA Formula Two Championship.

The highly-competitive single seater series made its annual trip to the legendary 2.3 mile track on 22-24 July with Surrey driver Jack Clarke leading the way in the opening round to secure his maiden victory on home soil.

The 23-year-old F2 driver also received his winning trophy from Kentish athlete and double gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes who was guest of honour at the event.

Meanwhile Sunday's second race saw another driver collect their debut F2 win, this time for Spaniard Ramon Pineiro.

Speaking after his maiden F2 win Jack Clarke said: "It's perfect. I couldn't have written that. I've not looked like knocking on the door of a win this year so to come here and to smash it so to speak is a big deal for me."

Guest Dame Kelly Holmes, who won gold in the 800m and 1500m at the 2004 Athens Olympics, added: "I had a great day watching the Formula Two championship at Brands Hatch, and what most people wont know is that I am hoping to get into racing myself..."

Alongside the fantastic F2 races, crowds also got to watch a mouth watering collection of supercars take to the track in the International GT Open where Soheil Ayari and Nicolas Marroc collected both the weekend spoils in their stunning Ferrari 458.

There was further single seater action in the European Formula 3 Open together with a host of MSVR support races to entertain spectators.

The next main event at Brands Hatch is the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship on 5-7 August. Race day tickets are available for 25 with weekend tickets available for 35.
