We're looking forward to welcoming fans to American SpeedFest 8 at Brands Hatch this weekend (3/4 July). Things will feel a little different compared to previous SpeedFests, but we've got some great racing, demos and displays lined up for you on both days. Here is some important information which will help you make the most of your trip to the circuit.

Gate opening times 
Public admission to the circuit is from 8.00am on Saturday and 9.00am on Sunday.

Tickets
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no tickets available to purchase at the gates on Sunday. These are SOLD OUT. A very limited number of Saturday tickets will be available on the gate for the following prices: Adults £25, Teen (13-15) £15, Senior Citizens £18

If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the ccuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. 

All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required. If you haven't received them, contact us urgently at activities@msv.com.

Print-at-home/e-tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, you can access them by logging on to your MSV account. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - e-tickets can be printed or scanned from a mobile device.

Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.

Grandstand seats
Grandstand seats are sold out across both days. Seating has been reconfigured and capacities limited to allow for social distancing. 

All customers have been emailed a fresh set of grandstand seats - if you haven't received yours, contact us at activities@msv.com with your Order ID booking reference.

Security
The safety and security of all our visitors is paramount, so please be aware you may be subject to bag searches and security checks at our venue. We would also politely ask, as an additional security measure, that you put luggage tags on all of your bags detailing your name and mobile number, so that it can be easily identified. Please do not leave your bag or personal belongings unattended at any time.
