Hi All, Any race fans out there?
Invite to join me at Brands Hatch Wrotham Kent on 9th November 2019.

If you want to watch cars racing with headlights blazing, brake discs glowing and exhausts flaming, then this is for you. Qualifying rounds during the day, practice at dusk, then a break for an evening meal. Then, the main event, a full on race in the dark. Event usually runs till about 8pm.

The Grandstand at Paddock should be open so you can seen just about the whole of the Indi circuit. Only the main straight is floodlit, the rest of the circuit will be unlit. I usually aim to get there at about 2pm to catch a couple of the qualifiers. Link is below. If you are interested in attending, please let me know. Can either meet at the circuit, or can meet outside .

Thanks
David

Got the link to work(after a fashion!). If you scroll down to the full race calender , you should hopefully be able to find the relevant page.

Thanks

Great idea. Sold me on that description. I'll see you there. Brands Hatch is only 30 miles from me.

Just a quick bump for this. I'm sure lots of you would love to come along and watch the racing.

:x: I just realised this clashes with the NEC Classic Car Show, so I won't be watching the racing, sorry.

No worries Alex. I realise that NEC will be a bigger draw.

Anyone not planning on going to the NEC and who are perhaps local to Brands, then
perhaps you might like to join me for a bit of night time racing. I plan on getting to
the circuit at around 12 noon to catch the Britcar qualifying and then a couple of
support races. At about 4.15, there should be a 20 minute acclimatization session,
followed by a 50 minute race. The race meeting finishes around 6.30 pm.

If anyone wants to meet up outside the circuit, then please let me know.

David

I'm a long way from Brands and I'm at Donington that day anyway; but this sounds like a great event
