GT World Challenge Sprint - Brands Hatch GP
Brands Hatch is a motor racing circuit located in Kent, England. It is one of the oldest and most historic racing circuits in the UK, having hosted its first race in 1950. The circuit is known for its unique layout, which includes a mix of fast and slow corners, steep inclines and dips, and narrow sections that require precise driving skills. Brands Hatch is widely regarded as one of the most challenging circuits in Europe and has hosted a number of top-level motorsport events, including Formula One, the British Touring Car Championship, and the World Superbike Championship. Brands Hatch remains one of the most famous and iconic motorsport venues in the UK, and continues to draw large crowds of fans and enthusiasts.
"This being a track I haven't been to before, makes it very exciting. I am excited to kick off the season here, and of course, I have now done many laps of testing at Brands Hatch on the simulator, along with certain preparations with the team to maximise the performance going into the weekend. So far, I really like the layout, I think it is a very old-school track with no run-off. The elevation change in some sections of the track makes it extra tricky, and that is what I like, it is very rewarding when you get it right, but alternatively, when you get it wrong it is the end of the session. Really looking forward to this one and kicking off the GT World Challenge season here."
