HSCC Brands Hatch

Fast becoming one of the highlights of the racing calender is the two day HSCC meeting held on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit. There is so much variety which, allied to a full programme of races and generally very good grids makes it just the sort of meeting to take non-enthusiast friends for a first taste of the sport.
