Venue Map
Click here to download a map of the venue.

If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required.

In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the main MSV office at Brands Hatch Circuit, Fawkham, Longfield, Kent, DA3 8NG.

Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, login to your MSV account to access them. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - you must have your e-tickets printed.

Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.

Additional tickets are available to purchase on the gate for £25 per day for adults. A full weekend ticket is available for £40 - discounts are available for 13-15 year olds and senior citizens aged 65 and above, while under-13s go free all weekend.

Gate opening times
Public admission to the circuit is from 7.30am on both days.
