Packed weekend of motor sport promised at Brands

0

More than 350 classic race cars will attend an unmissable two-day HSCC Superprix at Brands Hatch this weekend.

The cars will run on the full circuit that hosted the British and European Grands Prix from 1964 – ’86.

After the cancellation of the FIA Historic Formula 1 Championship round – due to a lack of entries – cars will now compete in a bumper round of the Derek Bell Trophy, against Formula 5000 and F2 machinery.

Paying homage to the Race of Champions events from 1970, participants will include a 1971 Surtees TS9,Jackie Stewart’s Tyrrell 006 from his championship-winning season in 1973 and, all from ’77, an Ensign, a Hesketh and James Hunt’s treble-race winning McLaren M26.

Between-race demos will be provided by ex-Nelson Piquet and Michael Schumacher Benettons, from 1990 and ’92 respectively.
Single-seaters will be joined throughout the weekend by GT cars, sports cars and saloons spanning the post-war decades.

An appearance from Piquet’s turbo-charged 1988 Lotus 101T will give spectators a flavour of what to expect in 2014 when forced induction returns to F1.

Tickets for the event start from £21 with free entry for under-13s, find out more here.
