After a wait of three years, the Brands Hatch Festival of Porsche makes a long awaited return this Sunday for the UK’s largest celebration of Germany’s most iconic sports car manufacturer, complete with racing, demonstrations and displays.
Over 1100 infield display passes were secured by Club members, but general admission tickets (without display parking) can still be purchased from Brands Hatch here.
Members with infield passes will need to arrive between 7.30am and 9.30am. After 9.30am infield entry is at the organisers discretion. Infield parking is only for Porsche vehicles. Infield passes were available on a first-come first-served basis and due to the demand for tickets the allocated spaces were quickly taken.
Upon arrival, please follow all instructions from parking marshals and remain polite and courteous at all times. Working with Brands Hatch, we will be doing everything we can to get everyone in as quickly and safely as possible.
Alongside the fantastic display of member-owned Porsches throughout the decades, visitors can enjoy a vibrant display from Porsche Cars GB with special road and race vehicles as well as the latest models from the showrooms.
On-track action will be headlined by the Petro Canada Lubricants Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli, along with races from the TracTive Suspension Porsche 911 Challenge and CALM All Porsche Trophy. You can find the full race timetable here.
While we don’t want to give too much away on what to expect from the two thirty minute demonstration laps, it is hoped we’ll get to see Jochem Mass behind the wheel of a Porsche 956, a sight not to be missed. Jochem will also be available for poster signings and various points throughout the day.
Rather than one main marquee, we will be making use of several smaller structures to provide members access to the Club Shop and fresh cups of tea or filter coffee. Complimentary drinks are available to Club members and one guest per member. Please have your membership card ready to show when ordering your drink, or collect a wristband from the membership desk. You can also provide proof of membership by logging in to your account here.
If the race schedule allows for it, any members still at the circuit are welcome to take part in a commemorative parade lap to round of the event in style. The parade lap is only available to Club members with infield parking. Cars will begin lining up at 5.30pm with the first Porsche rolling onto the track at 5.50pm. Full conditions can be found here.
For any Club members travelling down on Saturday, places are still available for the Festival of Porsche BBQ, taking place the evening before the main event. Situated in the Stirling Suite of the MotorSport Vision Centre, the BBQ is open from 6.30pm and offers fantastic views of the circuit to provide a fresh perspective ahead of Sunday’s racing and on-track action. Book your ticket here.
