Touring Car Championship Brands Hatch



Just got back from a great days racing at brands hatch and i'm knackered as the day started at 9am and didn't finish tell 6pm which was filled with tyre smoke the odd crash a few beers and a belly of burgers

Brands hatch is a great place to see motor racing as even if you don't buy tickets in the stands which are placed round the track you get good views as you can just stand round the fencing and get a lung full of tyre smoke which will save on buying cigs for the day

Will got there about 9am which was just in time for the free practice of the ginetta junior championship which is pretty mad as the drivers are only about 12/14 years old and there were going for it big time which was then followed by races from formula renault, seat cupra, renault clio and porsche carreras which have about two races over the day

Photo of me with the Seat Leon TDi which was the last outing for the SEAT Sport UK car in the Touring Car Championship which is a shame a it was a great car showing what a diesel engine could do on the track
