Kent’s Fantastic Fireworks

Brands Hatch Race Circuit 

Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 November 

Brands Hatch will end another busy season with a ‘bang’ when Truck Racing and Fireworks returns with a main race day on Bonfire Night. Sparks will fly with headline races from the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) alongside one of the South East’s best fireworks displays. 

The fireworks (on Sunday only) will be accompanied by a twilight convoy of show trucks in a spectacle unique to Brands Hatch. Sunday is very likely to sell out in advance, so it’s essential to book in advance if you wish to attend*.

In addition to five BTRC races across the weekend, there will be a full support race programme and a range of off-track entertainment for all ages. Under 13s go FREE. Book tickets at: brandshatch.co.uk
