Never seen VSCC at Brands so it should be quite an event hopefully.

Yes indeed ; I am there for CSCC on Sun/Mon but I hope to catch some of the VSCC action when I arrive on Saturday afternoon from Up North

Iím wondering if our delta is there with the 500s?

Edit- No, even he would have difficulty being at Brands and Oulton on the same day.....

I had been looking forward to going to this but the timetable on both the VSCC and Brands website shows the morning given over to sprint sessions then qualifying and only 6 races in the afternoon. No mention of 500s or the promised Edwardians race. It all looks very thin entertainment for the ticket price and the long trip so I will give it a miss. CSCC on Monday looks a lot more pleasing.

Likewise, but Brands Hatch's publicity still refers to the Edwardians. Right and left hand spring to mind...Ö..


Apparently the VSCC 85th anniversary celebration week failed to materialise.

Yes, the VSCC's anniversary plan fell to bits and what is left is the stub of the VSCC's first ever (I think) racing visit to Brands. Not their finest hour. I'll be there spectating, tho' Indy is not my favourite circuit - reasonable for spectating even so.

I was looking forward to popping down to this, but with the minimal amount of racing, I haven't bothered.

As I hinted on another thread , the gap between hype and reality was near actionable. I have no complaints about either MSV or VSCC 99% of the time as I think the circuits are beautifully run and presented , and VSCC meetings are so often a delight.



But 30 quid for entry and programme? For a half asleep 'sprint' and races which started after 3pm ?Oh , and a thinnish entry , and even more money demanded for a grandstand seat ?



Could do better... a lot better.

Anyone know whether the VSCC will return to Brands next year? A better-supported meeting on the Indy circuit could be fun.

They said they hoped this would turn into an annual meeting.

Only time will tell if that ends up being true.

From what I've heard, it's very unlikely. The poor entry wasn't just a coincidence.

Those of us who braved the M25, Southern Dragons and General Inertia had a fantastic time. I for one hope we go back.
I am told that MSV had their largest gate outside of BTCC and the road was blocked by spectators trying to get in.
