We're looking forward to welcoming fans to the tenth ever Brands Hatch Mini Festival this Sunday (7 August). Here is some important information which will help you make the most of your trip to the circuit.
Gate Opening Times
Public admission to the circuit is from 9am on Sunday. The first track action is at 10am.
Parking is free of charge in the main spectator car parks, located by the main entrance off the A20. These will be well signposted.
Please note that Southbank parking (the grass slope opposite the rear of the pit garages) is £5 per car. Places will be allotted on a first come, first served basis.
Blue badge holders should follow public signage for disabled parking or alternatively please speak to a member of staff on arrival.
Ticket holders are welcome to camp at our on-side campsite free of charge from midday on Friday 5 August until midday Monday 8 August, but very limited facilities are available.

Additional tickets are available on the gate at the following prices:
Adults: £25, 13-15-year-olds: £15, Senior Citizens: £20. Under-13s go free.
If you have chosen to have advance tickets posted (not print-at-home), you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted.
All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required. If you haven't received them, contact us urgently at [email protected]
Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.
Print-at-home/e-tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, you can access them by logging on to your MSV account. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - e-tickets must be printed or scanned from a mobile device.
A limited number of Grandstand seats are available to purchase from the Megastore at the following prices:
Paddock Hill Bend: Adults: £10. Under-16s £5
Official event programmes are on sale from the Megastore and Chapman's Kiosk for £5. Each programme contains details about this weekend's event, plus entry lists and other useful information.
Saturday MSVR event
The main Mini Festival itself is a Sunday-only event, but there will be qualifying for all Mini classes on Saturday, plus the weekend's opening races run by MSVR, with series including the Toyo Tires Racing Saloons, United Formula Ford, Production GTI Championship and MSVR All-Comers. More information about the Saturday event can be found here.
You're able to pick up one of our free children's wristbands from the Megastore. Write your name and phone number on the back of the wristband so we can contact you should you become separated from your child at any time.
Radio Brands 87.7 FM
Radio Brands will be broadcasting live commentary, interviews and spectator information throughout the weekend. Earpiece radios will be on sale from the Megastore for £8.
Here to help
Excellent customer service is important to us, and all our staff are trained to help you make the most of your visit to the circuit. Whether you need assistance to find a lost child or to locate a disabled toilet, please ask one of the many uniformed staff you will see throughout the venue.
The safety and security of all our visitors is paramount, so please be aware you may be subject to bag searches and security checks at our venue. We would also politely ask, as an additional security measure, that you put luggage tags on all of your bags, detailing your name and mobile number, so that it can be easily be identified. Please do not leave your bag or personal belongings unattended at any time.
