Brands and Oulton in Motorsport News’ best British venues list

Thursday, August 14 2014

Brands Hatch and Oulton Park are amongst a list of Britain's best motorsport venues in respected magazine Motorsport News this week (Wednesday 13 August). The issue celebrates the nation's greatest achievements in the sport and has also reserved praise for circuit operator MSV.

Brands Hatch came first in a list of Britain's best motorsport venues, which includes rally stages, hillclimbs, street circuits and stadiums in addition to traditional race and karting circuits.

The magazine commented: "The view from the top of Paddock Hill Bend is one of the very best provided by any race circuit, anywhere in the world. And it is a view that has been enjoyed by fans at the Kent circuit for club racing through to the British Grand Prix."

The track layout, which remains essentially unchanged from the sport's halcyon days, was also praised from a driving perspective: "The circuit remains an intense challenge", Motorsport News said.

Cheshire's Oulton Park also made the list: "Oulton's parkland continues to be one of the most challenging venues visited by top series including the BTCC."

The magazine also commented on MSV's stewardship of the circuit in its list of Britain's best motorsport companies: "Class leading facilities (at each circuit) has raised their standard to make each track one of the finest in the country for both spectators and competitors."
