Photos: Last Week’s BTCC at Brands Hatch

Here are a selection of photos of my day at Brands Hatch last Sunday for the opening round of the BTCC season. I brought along my new Nikon to try out at a racetrack for the first time, some of the shots are mildly good, most aren’t because I’m not a photographer or because I had fences and people in the way. Still, I had fun, it was a glorious sunny day (unlike today) and a perfect first racing event of the year.

Welcome to Brands Hatch

Nicolas Hamilton, brother of Lewis, has a disability but it doesn't stop him racing in the Renault Clio Cup.

I watched BTCC race 2 between Paddock Hill and Druids:

Clios:

Ginettas:

It’s great having 3 BTCC races in a day and a full slate of support races. Here’s BTCC race 3:

The oil from Jackson's car caused 6 other cars to go off

A glorious day for racing

You can see a lot at Brands Hatch if you find the right location. End of the day. Time to pack up and go home. 'Til next time.

You can see more of my photos in my Picasa album.

  1. Cracking collection of photos, Pat. It made for great viewing on TV but it really does look like you had a fantastic time there! :)

  2. It was a very good day, lots of racing, clear skies. Ideal way to start the racing year!

    I’m keeping Thruxton open as a reserve if I’ve got the money at the time, and I’m definitely going to the Silverstone round, the ticket is already booked. After this visit I’m quite tempted to go back to Brands for the last race of the year.
