The Kent circuit’s annual Italian party returns to Brands Hatch with an array of Italian stallions appearing on and off the track in a colourful opera of themed races, displays, and parades with special F1 demonstrations.

Off-track entertainment will include a car display area with machinery from Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lancia, and more from Europe’s most emotive motoring nation.

A number of safety measures will be in operation at this event in accordance with COVID-Secure guidelines. Click here to download a summary. 

MSV is restricting its attendance numbers signficantly to ensure visitors can easily socially distance - as such you will need to purchase your tickets in advance to guarantee admission. The general public will not have any access to the working areas (i.e. the paddock and pit lane) during this race meeting.

Please click here to view a map of the venue which outlines which areas are restricted to the visitors.

Please note that pre-registration is not required for season pass holders to gain admission - simply present your pass at the venue entrance as normal.

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.
