Gate opening times
Public admission to the circuit is from 09:00, with trackday cars permitted from 06:30. Display show cars are permitted from 07:30 - 09:30.


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, log in to your MSV account to access them. 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.

All advance sales have now closed and additional tickets are only available on the gate for the following prices:

Adult £20, Teen (13-15) £12, Senior Citizen £15

Ford Power Track Days - Places Still Available
There are still spaces available to take your car out on the 200 circuit for an open pit lane track session. Prices start at £89 for an AM or PM slot, with a full day on offer for just £159. All drivers will need to report to the race admin office in the paddock and bookings will be taken on the day. Everyone who purchases a track session, whether in advance or on the day, will be entered into a prize to win one-to-one tuition with BTCC ace Tom Chilton in your vehicle. Fords are advised but not compulsory. Click here for more info.

Exclusive Ford Parking

Display Vehicles
Entry for display vehicles will be through the main Snetterton gate. Please print tickets and have them available when arriving at the venue.

If you have been issued a coloured vehicle pass please have this available upon arrival. Your ticket will be linked to your vehicle and driver entry pass. Tickets are vehicle specific & you must arrive in your registered vehicle. Arriving in an unregistered vehicle will result in you being refused entry and directed to the public car park. You will receive ONE complimentary vehicle pass which also includes admission for the driver (only). You must purchase tickets for any additional passengers prior to entry. Under-13s go free.

Please print your vehicle pass and have this with you upon arrival. The letter and number on the vehicle pass corresponds to your parking location so please display this clearly for the parking mashalls once through the main gate. Once in place please do not move your vehicle. If you do need to move, for example due to an emergency, please ask for assistance from a member of staff.
