Brands Hatch is one of the most iconic sporting venues in the world and can lay claim to being the busiest race circuit in Europe.

Having undergone a series of major improvements in recent years, the Kent circuit now attracts some of the biggest international events on the calendar. Ever since starting out as a dirt track motorcycle circuit in 1926, Brands Hatch has been characterised by its natural ampitheatre, with virtually the entire 'Indy' configuration visible from the spectator banking and grandstands.

A firm fans' favourite, Brands Hatch has also witnessed a number of significant moments in history.

Jon Kirkham enjoyed a winning debut with Samsung Honda in the opening round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch but the Derby rider was denied the opportunity of challenging for a double victory by deteriorating conditions.

Kirkham snatched the advantage back from Alastair Seeley on the final corner of the last lap and then won the dash to the line by 0.136secs at the end of a race of attrition. Kirkham, who had been six seconds clear, saw his lead radically reduced over Michael Rutter and Seeley with a safety car period. Seeley was soon running in second place to set up a thrilling final end to the race.

The second race was postponed following track contamination at the circuit.
