Brands Hatch is a motor racing circuit near Swanley in Kent, England. First used as a dirt track motorcycle circuit on farmland, it hosted 12 runnings of the British Grand Prix between 1964 and 1986 and currently holds many British and International racing events. The name of the circuit may derive from the Gaelic Brondehach (bron meaning "wooded slope" and hach meaning "forest entrance").
Gerhard Berger once commented that Brands Hatch is "the best circuit in the world". With the circuit's unique combination of fearsome corners and hills, dips and cambers, it is still one of the world's favorite circuits, while Paddock Bend remains one of the great racing corners in the world, plunging blind, fast downhill.
