Plans are underway to mark the 40th running at Brands Hatch of the Formula Ford Festival, which will take place over the weekend of 24th – 25th October.

As the founders of this famous event, we are planning to make it a special occasion with a celebration dinner on Saturday evening and a ‘Masters’ race on Sunday, entry by which will be by invitation to podium placed competitors from previous Festivals, including the initial four at Snetterton, and other notable drivers who have played their part in the rich history of the meeting.

The Masters race, which will comprise of a 15-minute qualifying session and 20 lap race, is open to any 1600cc model going back over the five decades of the event.

If you are interested in the Masters Race or the Celebration dinner, which will take place on the Saturday night, then please contact the ‘Voice of Brands Hatch’, Brian Jones on 01474 853885 or via email bj@brianjones.net

Brian has attended each and every one of the Brands Hatch Festivals and commentated on most so it will be a real labour of love helping to organise the celebrations! The feed-back Brian has had so far has been very positive so we are hopeful of seeing some Festival legends lining up on the grid at Brands on Sunday 25th October.
