Festival of Porsche

Brands Hatch (Indy)

Sunday 02 September 2018

Festival of Porsche returns to Brands Hatch this September for a special celebration of Germany’s most iconic sports car manufacturer, complete with racing, demonstrations and displays.

The event’s return, for the first time since 2014, is ideally timed as it coincides with the 70th anniversary of the founding of Porsche.

On-track action will be headlined by Porsche Club GB’s very own Porsche Club Championship, starring a wide range of the manufacturer’s race-prepared cars across a number of classes. The Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition has launched this year to celebrate 20 years of the Porsche Boxster. To celebrate this milestone, Porsche Centres across the UK are sourcing and restoring 986 Boxster S models to race in a dedicated championship, with a pair of twenty five minute races. There will also be racing action from a selection of 4-Cyclinder Porsche cars, together with a round of the Porsche Club Speed Championship.

Significant racing cars from the manufacturer’s past will appear too, including the three-times Le Mans winning Porsche 919 Hybrid, taking to the track for special demonstration runs on the Indy circuit. The last Festival of Porsche featured appearances from Le Mans-winning Porsche 956s and 962s, and a whole host of other famous, mouth-watering Porsche cars will be on display in the garages to view throughout the day - plus some will be involved on-track for special demonstrations (click here to view a list of cars that will be attending). In addition to the main race day on the Sunday, Festival of Porsche’s activities will include a Porsche Club member’s soiree on the Saturday night.

Porsche Le Mans winners Derek Bell and Nick Tandy will be starring at the event, together with the famous Porsche collector - the ‘Urban Outlaw’ Magnus Walker, and Porsche Carrera Cup GB star, Daniel Harper. All will be on-hand for autograph sessions and interviews at the event.

Paddock Hill Sunday

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!

Roving Grandstand tickets allows you to choose your seat on a first come, first served basis.

Why not make a weekend of it and stay on-site at Brands Hatch? We have a dedicated camping area - just a short stroll from the racetrack.

  • ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

    The campsite opens at midday on the day before the event, and closes at midday on the day after the event has finished. Please note - limited facilities will be provided during this time.

    BBQs are permitted as long as they are raised off the ground, but open fires are not permitted. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol too.

    Animals are not permitted anywhere on site at Brands Hatch (except Guide/Assistance dogs), including the campsite.

  • FACILITIES

    The campsite will offer toilets and drinking water standpipes.

    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 a short walk away in the Lower Paddock.

  • RULES

    Please keep noise to a minimum after 23:30. 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.
