Cofton Hackett: the new Silverstone

Posted on May 30 2017 at 12:20:10

Good to hear about the new Brands Hatch circuit at Groveley Lane, but the real experiences belong to the up and coming circuit on the Barnt Green Road and the new extension at Kendal End.

What an experience, from the two pinch points with a hill climb and two quick straights – The New Silverstone for beginners.

Drivers on this stretch will have no fears of the safety car or race marshals, not considered to be necessary on this new circuit.

One problem that has become apparent is that when leaving the pits at three points on the circuit, with no crawler lane, accidents are waiting to happen – but not to worry, Brands Hatch could have the solution!
