I think it's better to use the GP loop at Brands, the racing may not be any better than it was on the Indy circuit, but at least it should be a better spectacle.

True. The GP loop is spectacular and will be amazing to watch those cars on the really quick bits. I agree, the racing won't be any better, to be honest I think Donington would have been a better fit if they wanted to see good racing. However I love Brands and am willing to make the journey for such a great track.

Someone just pointed out to me that the DTM entry on the MSV/Brands Hatch event calendar website has gone missing.

Whether that's coincidence, mistake or meaningful I've no idea!

Brands GP is being fenced during the winter thanks to DTM.

They did the same in 2011 on the inside of Druids.

Absolutely gutted by this news. The GP loop of Brands was one of the few segments of major UK circuit that hadn't ruined by restrictions and high fencing: I regret wishing that the DTM would return to Brands now!

Sad to see Eki go, but delighted that Robin Frijns will get his seat. The guy should be in F1.

Not just fencing, there are some areas that are now off limits to spectators.

His seat will be taken by Robin Frijns. Will be interesting to see how he'll get along with the car!

Frijns is very talented and surely will win races if not titles in DTM. But it's a shame to lose Eki, he was still fast and last year had a chance to win the 3° title. Would have been great to see him in action for another year at least...

Could not agree more, would love to see him get in through the back door in a Hartley fashion.

An interesting idea, and one I’ve been pondering for a while (though I had initially thought GT3). Back to the days of the DRM.

Wouldn't that be bad for ELMS? They have few GTE entries already, with a more popular series running those cars it could reduce it even further.

EDIT: Although ELMS has the Le Mans Automatic Invitations thing.

That would definitely revive my interest for the series, though Frijns in an Audi does that a bit already as well
