Brands Hatch is one of the premier racing circuits in the UK, located near Swanley in Kent and a 35 minute drive from Springwood Guesthouse.
Unbelievably it was originally a simple dirt track motorcycle circuit on farmland, but its development into one of the world’s favourite racing circuits, brought a unique combination of fearsome corners, dips and cambers. It has been host to 12 British Grand Prix’s starting from the infamous Brabham Straight, with Paddock Hill Bend remaining one of the greatest racing corners in the world, plunging drivers downhill fast into a blind corner.
Now one of the world’s most iconic sporting venues it plays host to a multitude of prestigious motorsport events and driving experiences on both two and four wheels.
