Exclusive high-speed ultracar show at Brands Hatch this May

Thursday, February 18 2016

The world's most expensive ultracars will make an exclusive UK appearance at Brands Hatch this May (7/8), with a high speed demonstration of priceless machinery making the Kent venue's round of the Blancpain GT Series the most exciting supercar event in the country.

The Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup visits the famous Kent venue for the third time this spring, with two one-hour races featuring many of the world's most extreme cars driven by some of the best sportscar and GT drivers from across the globe. Previous events have included former Formula 1 drivers including Alex Zanardi and Markus Winkelhock, with Audi, BMW, Lamborghini, McLaren and Mercedes amongst the manufacturers represented on the grid.

This year's event is set to cause a sensation with the first and only Blancpain Ultracar Sports Club appearance in the UK this season. The Blancpain Ultracar Sports Club offers fans the chance to see some of the planet's most exclusive cars in action during a high speed demonstration by their owners on one of the world's best circuits.

Established in 2015, last year's Ultracar Sports Club events on the continent featured highly coveted machinery from the past decade including the Aston Martin One-77 and Vulcan, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari 599XX and LaFerrari, Lamborghini Veneno, McLaren P1, Pagani Huayra and Zonda Revolucion, and Porsche 918 all on track together. Unlike at most supercar events, these priceless cars, a rare sight on the UK's roads, will be unleashing their enormous potential on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit over four 30-minute sessions during the weekend.

Visitors to the event will also be able to enjoy racing from the Blancpain GT Sports Club, a supercar series for gentlemen GT drivers, and the UK-based GT Cup Championship. The event will also feature racing from the MINI Challenge and an off-track supercar display.

Stephane Ratel, Founder and CEO of SRO Motorsports Group, said: "We're delighted to be returning to Brands Hatch in May with the greatest diversity of race-prepared supercars in the world. The historic GP circuit not only provides a stern challenge for our Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup drivers and teams, but also generates an incredible atmosphere amongst the fans.

"We're confident this year's Brands Hatch round will be even more memorable thanks to the Blancpain GT and Ultracar Sports Clubs joining our package. The latter - first launched in 2015 - is particularly special as it offers fans a rare and, in some cases, first-ever opportunity to see the world's most exotic hypercars pushed to their limits on track. The sight and sound of Aston Martin Vulcans, Ferrari LaFerraris and McLaren P1 GTRs, to name but a few, on the ragged edge through Paddock Hill Bend is certainly something I'm looking forward to! It's also quite possibly the closest anyone has come to replicating the much-loved GT1 era of the late 1990s."

Tickets for the Blancpain GT Series, featuring the Blancpain Ultracar Sports Club, are on sale from £21 with free entry for under-13s. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
