Or how GT3 is wrong, BoP, yadda yadda.


We. Zanardi. Brands Hatch. Now.


Oh, and it's free, suck on it DTM.

Not sure if you were drunk but I really enjoyed watching the two races on TV. The cars look great, there was some close racing and it's always good to see the Brands Hatch GP Circuit being used.

Brilliant weekend at Brands, a real pleasure watching the cars around the GP Circuit, no fencing obstructing the view most of the way and quite nice not to have any commentary just the sound of the cars, the BMW's sounded especially raw.

All in all, great circuit, great cars, great sounds and for once even the weather was great!!!! Can the endurance round be switched to Brands aswell please?!!

I wasn't trying to be coy about the race. Far from it.


I tried some 'net savvy humor. It failed, I guess. Just tried to bring a fraction of a light on a series I feel is severely underrated.


The races at Brands were a delight. And from my POV, the two dudes (Proczyk & Bleekemolen) deserved that win. And Zanardi was top-notch. I think it's a shame people disregard this and the Endo Series because of the gt3-bop rules (be that as it may). The cars are good, Watson is awesome and the racing is FIA level. (jusy don't mention Kogay)


For any dude / dudette interested, here is the main event:

The group of us that went on the Sunday had a very good day.  Only £15 having pre-booked, pretty good when it included a seat in the Paddock Hill grandstand (although that was too hot to sit in) and the big screen so that you could track the positions after pit stops etc... an enjoyable meeting for the £££.


Attended the last few endurance races at Silverstone but the circuit, atmosphere and facilitiesat Brands make it a much better venue , would much rather see them switch the endurance round to Brands too.
