Brands Hatch Resurfacing
Brands Hatch has carried out a major resurfacing project, replacing over half the Indy circuit to improve the quality of the track surface for it's competitors, who can experience it on test days available throughout January and February.
The track has been resurfaced from mid-way down Cooper Straight, through McLaren, around Clearways and down the Brabham Straight to the centre of the pit complex using Prixmat surface material, well known for its high performance friction surface qualities.
Other circuit improvements include the addition of new kerbing at the exit of Druids, reinforcing the area behind the kerb on the exit of Graham Hill Bend and reducing the width of the tarmac run-off at the bottom of Paddock Hill Bend.
MotorSport Vision Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer said, “This resurfacing project represents a major investment in Brands Hatch. Even in these tough economic times, MSV is committed to developing and improving our circuits. It will be interesting to see what effect the new surface has on lap times.”
If you want to get an advantage over the competition in 2010, book a pre-season test day at Brands Hatch and come and try the new track for yourself.
