The legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit will reverberate once more with the sound of classic F1 machinery at the Masters Historic Festival in May.

Machines from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s will star in headline Masters Racing Legends battles, resplendent in iconic liveries from the past. Machinery from Tyrrell, Lotus, Arrows, Williams and McLaren could feature on a stunning grid which harks back to a time when the Kent circuit regularly hosted British and European Grands Prix.

Other highlights will include the Masters Endurance Legends series for special Le Mans prototypes of the ‘90s and ‘00s, whilst Masters Sports Cars will recreate the spirit of Brands Hatch’s 1000km races of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

On top of that there will be retro touring car action from the HRDC Gerry Marshall Trophy and Masters Pre ’66 Touring Cars and GT racing from the Masters Gentlemen Drivers and Masters GT Trophy.
