MSVR to host new Deutsche Fest at Brands Hatch

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
