One of the world’s most popular, exciting and competitive single seater contests returns for 2023! The BRSCC’s blue-riband Formula Ford Festival returns to Brands Hatch for its 52nd running since it began in 1972, and the 48th to run on the Indy circuit in Kent since it switched venues in 1976. Some of the finest Formula Ford drivers from around the British Isles prepare to do battle against challengers from Europe, the Americas, Australasia and more in the original single seater knockout contest. Drivers have to battle through the heats and semi-finals, and perhaps even the last chance race, to make it to the all-important Grand Final and a chance to win the Neil Shanahan Trophy, whilst also earning a spot on the prestigious Roll of Honour.
This weekend will also double up as the highly anticipated season finale of TCR UK, which comes to its conclusion at Brands Hatch. Completing its first full season back with the BRSCC, the pressure will be on to decide who claims the championship crown should it still be up for grabs. After a season-long battle that has taken the championship the length and breadth of the UK, it all comes down to the final races of the season to decide who comes out on top!
Plus, there’s also set to be titles decided and champions crowned in both the Milltek Sport Civic Cup and the BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship, which are sure to both go down to the wire as well. And if that wasn’t enough excitement in store, we’re also joined on this weekend by the incredible Mini 7 Racing Club, who bring both the Se7ens and Miglias to town in what should be a sensational compliment to all of the above.
So, Formula Fords, TCR UK, Civics, Fiesta Juniors AND Mini 7s – you really won’t find a more thrilling timetable of racing on this weekend than here at Brands Hatch!
