British Truck Racing Championship & Fireworks
Brands Hatch (Indy)
Saturday 01 - Sunday 02 November 2014

Expect fireworks on and off the track this November, as the popular racing trucks blast into Brands Hatch for their spark-tacular season finale, while on Sunday night the darkening skies will be lit up by our now customary dazzling fireworks display.

Truck racing is simply one of the most unique forms of motorsport in the world. The drivers aren't afraid to make contact with their rivals, as they poweslide around the circuit at speeds up to 100mph!
Truck Racing is one of Brands Hatch's most popular family events, with a packed programme of motorsport, plus a huge variety of off-track activities including monster truck rides, a traditional fairground and a big kids' entertainment tent with baloon modellers, a Punch and Judy show and much more! And don't forget that after the racing has finished on Sunday (between 4.45pm and 5pm), you'll be treated to that huge fireworks display!

There's great food and drink too, with a bonfire party-inspired menu in our permanent restaurants, plus a hog roast. Click here to see what's on offer.

Please note - parking on Southbank will be limited at this event due to the positioning of the fireworks display. Please click here to view a map showing the restricted area. Access to Southbank will be £2 on the Saturday and £5 on the Sunday (per vehicle).
