Viewing on the Grand Prix loop
Visitors this weekend will notice some changes to the Grand Prix loop section of the circuit, with new pathways and additional debris fencing in several areas. These changes have been made as part of an ongoing programme of spectator safety improvements.

You will still be able to walk around the perimeter of the Grand Prix circuit, but please note a small trackside section between Sheene Curve and Stirlings Bend will no longer be a spectator area. We have added information boards to help you find your way round.

Parking at Brands Hatch is free of charge for cars and motorcycles. However, if you wish to park at Southbank (the grass bank opposite the rear of the pits) or infield (the area behind Druids hairpin) parking is available for £5 per car (bikes not permitted) on Saturday and Sunday. Click here to download a pass. Please note Southbank will be closed on Friday.

Advance online ticket sales have now closed, but you can still pay on the gate at the following prices:

Friday (practice): Adult £10, 13-15 year olds £6, senior citizens £8
Saturday (race one): Adult £20, 13-15 year olds £12, senior citizens £15
Sunday (races two and three): Adult £34, 13-15 year olds £20, senior citizens £26
Children under 13 are free on all days.

If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required.

In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the main MSV office at Brands Hatch.

Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, you can access them by logging on to your MSV account. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - you must have your e-tickets printed.

Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.

Grandstand seats
Grandstand seating is available in Paddock Hill Bend grandstand on Saturday for £10 and Sunday for £20, whilst Sunday seating is available in the Pit Straight grandstand for £20, Hailwoods for £15, and Desire Wilson for £10.
