Brands Hatch Circuit
The American SpeedFest was launched in 2013 to great acclaim.Fusing American-oriented motoring and motorsport with music, food and entertainment, the event was a huge hit with spectators and families in particular. And the world-famous Brands Hatch is the perfect host venue – its natural amphitheatre offers unrivalled views of all the action, and its facilities are second to none. And it has great road links too, being just 5 minutes from junction 3 of the M25.
The iconic Kent track will be transfomed into a scene from Daytona for a fourth successive year on Sunday 12 June when American SpeedFest IV takes place. The superb NASCAR Whelen Euro Series makes its return as the headline act, bringing with it all the pomp and circumstance that we so closely associate with the US. Outrageous driver introductions, cheerleaders and The Star Spangled Banner will all feature, building up towards a bumper-to-bumper contest reminiscent of the world-famous Sprint Cup!
The American theme will continue across the support races with Bernie’s V8s, a series showcasing powerful classic American cars, featuring. More races will be announced in the coming months but expect amazing American themed programme of wheel to wheel racing!
Spectators will be able to enjoy plenty away from the track too with a host of themed activities including live music throughout the day, monster trucks (including those offering passenger rides), American cuisine and our very own Victory Lane, where spectators can be just inches from the cars and drivers for the NASCAR post-race celebrations! There will also be a myriad of classic American cars and bikes on display.
Air displays, free kids’ entertainment and cheerleader displays all add to the fun at this brilliant, totally unique day out for all the family.
