Brands Hatch is one the world's most iconic motor racing circuits, having hosted 12 British Grand Prix between 1964 and 1986. It was also the venue for a number of the cycling races for the London 2012 Paralympic Games. The 3.9km Grand Prix circuit provides a great challenge of arduous climbs, banking corners and exhilarating descents.
In 3.9km a rider will have an elevation gain of 65m and endure a maximum gradient of 9% as well as hit maximum speeds coming off the iconic Druids hairpin bend as the track curves into the downhill off-camber Graham Hill Bend!
The most significant upward elevation changes on the circuit occur at Pilgrim's Drop and Hawthorn Hill, which leads into Hawthorn Bend as the circuit heads into the woodland Grand Prix circuit.
The venue has great facilities, excellent paddock and pit garage facilities, ample car parking, camping and shower facilities.
The Bend Motorsport Park is a world-class, $100 million development located near Adelaide, South Australia, catering for international events, national series racing, grass roots club events, driver safety training and drive experience programs. The Bend is Australia’s newest circuit built to the latest FIA Category 2 and FIM Category A standards.
The Bend is unique in providing all motorsport disciplines ‘through the one gate’, including circuit racing for cars and motorcycles; Australia’s only purpose-built drift circuit; a CIK-FIA standard karting circuit; an international Group 1 dragway; driver training facilities; a 4WD adventure park and a rally/off-road facility.
For 2019 we will be using the International Circuit measuring a distance of 4.95km.
Race Across America (RAAM) is one of the most respected and longest running ultra-endurance events in the world. RAAM is seen as a pinnacle of athletic achievement not only in cycling circles but the greater sporting community as well.
