The stupidity of some people knows no bounds.... I think it was allowed to happen simply because no one ever thought anyone would be stupid enough to do it! On. A different note I have heard this is now being looked into by the police.......

Exactly what I said, what it will do is stop the freedom of movement around the pit area and entrance tunnel that some of us have enjoyed most weekends for years !

I agree, I bet our movements at the MSVR meeting I'm off to at Cadwell in a couple of weeks time will be heavily restricted from now on.

You can clearly hear him say he intended to drive onto the circuit, so I think he will find himself in deep ****. The annoying thing is this is only going to make access to genuine race fans more restricted.

I think its fake, look closely at the 2nd video the guy appears to have a helmet on and I cannot see passengers. The footage could have been taken on a track day or test day which allows passengers, great promotion for the Fun Cup (maybe) which may end up biting them in the arse as people don't like being fooled!

A great disservice to our marshals and the Brands Hatch officials, I think who ever organised this and if its the Fun Cup people for cheap publicity this should be punished accordingly.

I have raced at Brands many many times and I am convinced this wouldn't have been possible sorry I need more evidence before I accept this as true.

Al.

I was there. Unfortunately it did indeed occur. White polo just came from the pits and did a lap. Police are looking into it and hopefully those involved will be prosecuted.

Ruined a great possible ending to a good race.

You can't argue with the prank level of this however stupid!

But for those that have been to Brands, this meant he got through the tunnel, into the pits and the damned pitlane! How on earth is that possible?

Many questions needs answering.
