DTM 2018

Brands Hatch (GP)

Saturday 11 - Sunday 12 August 2018

DTM returns to Brands Hatch this weekend (11/12 August) after a five-year absence. The prestigious German-based touring car series will race on the legendary Grand Prix circuit for the first time

DTM is the world's fastest and most technologically advanced tin-top racing series, featuring cars based on saloons from BMW, Audi and Mercedes. The innovation and manufacturer involvement in DTM is at a level scarcely seen outside of F1.

DTM boasts an outstanding roster of driving talent, with this year's grid including ex-Grand Prix drivers Paul Di Resta and Pascal Wehrlein. Both are former champions in the category, and will be joined in a top-drawer Mercedes line-up by local driver Gary Paffett from Bromley, another former champion with a Brands Hatch DTM win to his name, and he currently leads this year's championship.

Both races this weekend will be 55 minutes plus a complete lap, with one held on Saturday, the other on Sunday. In both races, the drivers have to pit at least once for a set of fresh tyres.

In addition to the racing, there will be a classic F1 demonstration on the full GP circuit both days from retro 1990’s F1 cars - a 1991 Dallara F191 and a Footwork Arrows FA13b. You can also meet your favourite DTM drivers in the new Fan Village too.

DTM driver autograph sessions will take place at 4.30pm on Saturday and 9am on Sunday. Both sessions will be located at the DTM taxi-tents (behind Paddock Hill Grandstand).

Please note: Access to the outer paddock area and pit walks is included free of charge within all admission tickets. There is no public admittance to the pit lane itself or the area behind the garages.

Paddock Hill Saturday

Paddock Hill grandstand provides superb views through one of Brands Hatch's most iconic bends and is an ideal location to watch the start line action, as the field jostle for position heading into the first corner. The sweeping curves of Paddock Hill and round Druids Hairpin are key places for overtaking and are often the scenes of breathtaking manoeuvres and dramatic incidents!

You can select your seat(s) when you order online, or you can call our call centre on 0843 453 9000

    The toilets are cleaned and emptied throughout the weekend. Please help us by keeping them clean and tidy.

    Please do not use the surrounding woods or bushes. If you are found doing so, you may be ejected from the campsite and your wristband will be confiscated.

    There are hot showers located on the campsite. Please be aware that the queues can be long at peak times.

    MEDICAL - Call 07974 047929

    FIRE/SECURITY EMERGENCY - Call 07919 218148

  • RULES

    Please keep noise to a minimum after 22:30 in the Quiet campsite area, and midnight in the General area. This includes the use of generators wherever possible, particularly if they are portable external units. Any campers that persist in making excessive noise after this time may be evicted from the campsite without refund of ticket fees, or even banned from the venue permanently in extreme cases.

    Road-registered vehicles are permitted within the campsites, but scooters and mini-motos are not permitted. Please be considerate of others and keep vehicle movement to a minimum. Sleeping in vans is not advised.

    Campers under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an appropriate adult.

    Strictly no animals are allowed on site at any time, however Guide/Assistance dogs are permitted when pre-arranged with the venue.

    Open fires are not permitted on the campsite (no wood burning). Barbecues are permitted but must be raised off the ground. Please dispose of coals and single use barbecues (once cool) in the metal bins provided.

    Never leave a hot stove or barbeque unattended. Keep roadways and fire lanes clear at all times. Store fuel and generators away from ignition sources. Fire extinguishers are located at various fire points around the campsite. Use only in an emergency and raise the alarm immediately.

    The campsite speed limit is 10mph. Only drive if strictly necessary and watch for children.

    Secure tents and gazebos carefully - always prepare for high winds!

    Never use a portable barbeque or gas burner inside a tent, awning or enclosed space (for cooking, or heating when cold). A cooling barbeque can also give off poisonous gas.
