Drive Fast In Safety At Club Brands Hatch

Club Brands Hatch


Got a car? Any car. Got the urge to find out what it, and you, can do away from the public highways and byways?

Whether you drive a Golf GTi or an Audi TT, a Porsche Boxster or a Renault Clio Sport, MotorSport Vision, owner of the UK’s premier racetracks, has launched a series of ‘Club’ track days at its famous Brands Hatch, Cadwell Park, Oulton Park and Snetterton circuits this summer.

Specially designed to develop the individual’s ability behind the wheel with guidance from experienced instructors, Club MSV Track days also allow owners to test the performance of their vehicles in a safe and controlled environment.

Importantly, the days are not targeted to those who own expensive, highly modified, "track-day" vehicles, but more towards their more road going cousins….in fact, any car, shape or size.

Before setting out on the track, drivers are given a thorough briefing on vehicle preparation, track etiquette and racing lines, while brake boards and cones around the circuit will help beginners to master the track effectively.

Experienced instructors are on hand throughout the day to offer one-to-one advice and give in-car tuition as drivers tackle some of the most famous corners in the world like Paddock Hill Bend at Brands Hatch, Snetterton’s Russell Chicane and the Mountain at Cadwell Park.

Brands Hatch instructor Neil Mills said: "Every day, hundreds of thousands of people get into their sporty hot hatches and saloons - only to sit in crawling traffic jams and grid-locked cities. We’re giving owners the opportunity to get out of third gear and see what they, and their cars, can really do.

The ‘Club’ experience is not just about going as fast as humanly possible, as we regularly help people improve their driving position and operation of controls, and teach them all sorts of things they didn’t know about the dynamics of their vehicle."

Club Brands Hatch will run MSV track days on the 1.2-mile Indy circuit on Wednesday July 20, Tuesday August 2, Wednesday October 12 and Tuesday, November 10. A rare chance to join Club Brands Hatch on the 2.6-mile Grand Prix circuit will be on Thursday September 8.

Club Oulton will run track days on August 31, September 20 and October 18; Club Snetterton days are on August 16, September 13 and October 24; Club Cadwell’s day on July 6 is already full, with the next date on October 11. Track days cost between £115 and £285. Instruction costs £25 per 20 minutes, and extra drivers per car cost £25 each. Book your place by logging on to
