Welcome to the Brands Hatch American Speedfest website


Which is the main event day?

Sunday is generally considered the main event day, however we have extended Saturday’s activities off track for 2019, with a full programme of qualifying and racing, big car displays and off-track fun. Certain features, such as the Swamp Thing Monster Truck Show and the Ghostbusters display, will be Sunday only. The Transformers will be here all weekend!

What time do the gates open?

Gates open at 8am on Saturday and 9am on Sunday (this is to allow time for the large number of American vehicles to safely enter the venue).

What time does the campsite open?

For ticketholders, the campsite opens at midday on the Friday before the event and will close at midday on the Monday after the event. For more information click here.

How much does it cost to park?

Parking is free of charge for all public car parks. If you wish to park on Southbank (the large grassed area opposite Cooper Straight) the charge is £5 per car on the Saturday and £5 per car on the Sunday. If you plan on parking on Southbank you will need to display a pass that you can purchase on the day. This can be downloaded here

Is there Disabled Parking and Viewing available?

Blue Badge holders may park free of charge in a dedicated parking area, please arrive at the venue’s main entrance where you will be directed to your parking space.

There is a wheelchair viewing area in Paddock Hill Grandstand with free of charge access to wheelchair users plus one carer. Any additional carers, friends or family must be in possession of a valid grandstand ticket. Please contact our ticket office on 0343 453 9000 to reserve space in the wheelchair viewing area.

Do you have baby-changing facilities?

Yes, in the main toilet block next to our Kentagon Restaurant by Paddock Hill Bend and in the restaurant itself.

Do you have a cash machine on-site?

Yes - outside our Megastore by Paddock Hill Bend. Some of our mobile catering vendors also offer a cashback facility.

What happens if my tickets don't arrive in time?

All tickets are sent by Royal Mail Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required. In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the ticket office at the address below:

Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, log in to your MSV account to access them. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue, you must have your e-tickets printed.

Are animals permitted anywhere on site?

No animals are permitted anywhere on site. Guide/assistance dogs are the only exception.

What age do I have to be to qualify for a Senior Citizen discount?

We offer a discount to our guests that are aged 65 and over.

What is MSV's ticket refund policy?

The ticketholder shall only be entitled to a refund or exchange (at MSV's election) if an event is cancelled in its entirety prior to its commencement of the Event for reason(s) that are within the reasonable control of MSV.
