All public car parks are free of charge. Southbank parking (the large grassed area opposite Cooper Straight) will cost 5 on Saturday and Sunday. Mini owners can park on Southbank for free.

Mini2 won't have a stand so any members going will be in the free Mini only parking on the Southbank inside the race circuit (see link above for a free parking pass to print out) but Surrey New MINI, MINI Torque, etc have large club stands (you might get a spare place on their stands if you register on their forums as a few have had to drop out for work reasons, etc.)

Great day at Brands Hatch today and no rain, back for more tomorrow!

If you are going tomorrow and are not on a club stand follow the yellow signs from the main A20 for BH 'Southbank' parking (a black triangle) pay entry or show tickets as usual but the Southbank parking is free for Mini's/MINI's and allows you to park right inside the circuit with a view of the track from your car should it rain. The other bonus is at the end of the day around 5pm a BH course car will come to Southbank looking for volunteer Mini/MINI's to join the 2 circuit parade laps with all the show car Mini/MINI's which join at Paddock Hill bend. I did not know this but happened to be in the right place at the right time just as I was getting ready to leave., so got unexpected parade laps which was fun!

Also don't miss the Minisport MINI's on the rally circuit behind the paddock, not easy to find down a long footpath....or follow the rally MINI's passing back and forth and red rally signs.

See some pictures below of the day......sorry the order is a bit random!
