MSVR to host new Deutsche Fest at Brands Hatch
Motorsport Vision Racing will add a themed festival in celebration of Germany’s motorsport culture to its 2017 Brands Hatch programme.
The group has run an American Speedfest event at Brands Hatch since 2013, featuring the NASCAR Whelen Euroseries, and last year added the Festival Italia to its events list.
This year a new Deutsche Fest event will be held at the Kent venue on the August 19/20 weekend, and will feature racing from the club’s German-branded series. Certain car club members will also be allowed to sign on to drive on the circuit.
“It’s going to be headlined by the Volkswagen Racing Cup and the VAG Trophy, [and feature] the new Z Cars series, Production BMWS and hopefully we’ll also be joined by the Kumho BMWS as well,” said motor sport events manager and MSVR club secretary David Willey. “It’s not just about having the MSVR championships, but also trying to attract other series.
“We’ll be filling Colin Chapman Way and the grass areas with different German car clubs.
“What will make this event different is on the Saturday we’re offering two or three hours for public track time – so anyone who’s part of [one of the] German car clubs can sign on and drive their car around the circuit in anger.”
MSVR also runs Mini Festivals at Brands and Oulton Park and has added a third such event for 2017, to be held at Snetterton on the May 13/14 weekend.
