Two of MSVR's flourishing single seater series are in action this weekend (30/31 August) as BRDC F4 and Champion of Brands support British GT's third MSVR-organised round of the season at Brands Hatch Grand Prix.
BRDC Formula 4 provides the biggest single seater grid of the weekend, filled with budding open-wheel stars. Sennan Fielding will be full of confidence having made Formula 4 history at Silverstone by winning all three races for HHC Motorsport.
George Russell of Lanan Racing tops the championship standings, as he has for much of the season, but his lead has been eaten away by Fielding's team-mate Raoul Hyman. The lead now stands at just 11 points, with Fielding a further 18 points adrift in third thanks to that hat-trick of wins. Will Palmer continues to be a presence in the title fight, just seven points back from Fielding in the standings.
Lanan Racing, who took Jake Hughes to the inaugural title last year, will be looking to bounce back after their first win-less weekend of the season at Silverstone. Fifth-placed Arjun Maini and sixth-placed Struan Moore have chipped in with three wins between them to add to Russell's four. With nine races still to run this season, none of the top five or six are out of the championship running just yet.
The season's final round of Champion of Brands has attracted one of the most competitive Formula Ford 1600 grids of the year. June's Champion of Brands winner, multiple single seater champion Scott Malvern, returns after missing the third race two weeks ago due to his Radical SR3 Challenge commitments.
Oliver White currently holds the number one on his Van Diemen, having won the Lotus Festival round a fortnight ago, and he was Malvern's closest challenger in June. The vastly experienced Joey Foster, a Formula Ford Festival winner and three-time Walter Hayes victor, will also be among the front-runners.
Richard Tarling, Ciaran Haggerty, Ashley Dibden, Gaius Ghinn and Innes Hickman all also should be in the mix, meaning the 2014 Champion of Brands ends in some style.
Further support comes from the Ginetta GT5 Challenge, the Volkswagen Racing Cup and British F3. Tickets cost £14 on the gate on Saturday and £22 on Sunday. Admission is free for under 13s.
