Brands Hatch set for supercar spectacular next weekend

Thursday, April 27 2017

Brands Hatch will be transformed into a supercar paradise next weekend (6/7 May), with top-draw international sportscar racing from the Blancpain GT Series, and the world's most exotic cars showcased at the Kent venue.

The headlining Blancpain GT Series is the world's most competitive championship for supercars, with a mammoth 34-car grid that includes stunning machines from Audi, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and Mercedes. The series also features superstar drivers, including former F1 racers Will Stevens and Markus Winkelhock racing an Audi R8 together, and triple Le Mans winner Marcel Fassler in another R8.

In addition to Essex's Stevens, there are a further 11 British drivers in action, including former GP3 title contender Jake Dennis in an Audi R8, former British Touring Car race-winner Steven Kane in a Bentley Continental, Kent's Phil Quaife in a Ferrari 488 and London-based double Porsche racing champion Michael Meadows in a Mercedes-AMG GT.

The Blancpain GT Series cars will race twice on main raceday Sunday, with two one-hour races featuring pitstops for driver changes adding further drama. The sound of over 30 of the world's most expensive cars roaring into action is set to be one of the most memorable moments of the season! 

In addition to the huge Blancpain GT grid, there are also large fields of sports cars competing in the supporting GT4 European Series Northern Cup and Lotus Cup Europe. Expected to be in action are Grand Prix hero James Hunt's son Freddie in the GT4 race and former F1 driver Martin Donnelly in the Lotus category.

Hypercars in action plus huge supercar display

Track action also includes high-speed demonstrations from several sensational hypercars, rarely seen being driven to their considerable capabilities. These include the incredible LaFerrari and its rival the McLaren P1, two 1,000-horspower Koenigsegg Ageras and much more.

All of the hypercars will be on display throughout main raceday, and they'll be joined by an enormous selection of supercars, organised by the Supercar Siege in aid of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children's Fund. This will include a plethora of Ferraris and Lamborghinis, Maseratis and Porsches amongst the world's most expensive machines.

Visitors wanting to get involved in the action can race go-karts on the venue's dedicated track, and there's a funfair and children's adventure playground to keep all of the family entertained throughout the day.
