Tickets
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.

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 on Saturday and Sunday, while a full weekend ticket is available for £35 - discounts are available for 13-15 year olds and senior citizens aged 65 and above, while under-13s go free.

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

How to get here

Parking
You will be directed to our Main Entrance (near the paddock) on arrival, but should this get congested we will direct you to our museum entrance. Please follow directional signage on the approach to the circuit. Our main car parks are all free of charge.

Disabled parking
Blue badge holders are welcome to park inside the paddock (Paddock 3) or at the dedicated disabled viewing area at Coppice corner accessed via Gate 10. A dedicated disabled viewing suite will be open throughout the weekend too. Please speak to a member of security or a steward upon arrival, who will direct you to the relevant parking area.

Food and drink
The stunning new Garage 39 café, bar and restaurant in the heart of the paddock will be open throughout the event, with a wide range of food, drinks and refreshments on offer.

Starkey's Parking
