Brands Hatch GP can be a tricky track at the best of times. I seem to take the steep Paddock Hill Bend differently each lap, and that’s just the first corner!
Later around the loop there’s the tight Druids hairpin, juxtaposed with the highspeed Hawthorns, which has a mid-corner bump that can unsettle the car and throw you into an unforgiving barrier. Plus, there’s the old-school narrow layout and run-off areas that are either too small or a giant sand pit.
Throw into the mix a full grid of powerful and evenly matched GT3 machinery and you have the recipe for a very expensive pile of scrap metal and carbon fibre.
Which is why a track guide to maximise every last bit of weathered kerb is well worth a watch. In my opinion, that is.
Here, watch as I go through each corner, bit by bit, culminating is a quick lap time. Hopefully you can then apply these learnings to your driving and win your next ACC online league event. Below are some times to aim for:
- Pro – 1:22.00
- Pro-Am – 1:23.50
- Am – 1:25.00
- My time – 1:22.40
