Regulations were published and entries opened at the beginning of June for the Hutton Kitchens Brands Hatch Summer Stages, which is being held on Sunday 24th August.

There has been a great response so far with 80 entries already. The latest entry list can be viewed here.

This year, with longer stages giving more stage miles and a greater challenge to competitors, 90 cars can start the event so if you are thinking of entering, there is still room!

By utilising one of the pit lane entrance tunnels and additional areas around the ‘rally school’ the stage length has been increased to 7-8 miles per stage and 8 stages totalling approximately 60 miles are planned.

Media registration is open and closes at noon on Monday 18th August.

Marshal and radio crew registration is open and your support is much appreciated. All signed on marshals and radio crews will receive a memento from the event as a little thank you for your time and support. 

Spectator tickets are available for purchase from Brands Hatch directly [please see the regs for details of competitor discounted tickets].

Special Stage will be filming the event, which is due to be broadcast on Motors TV (Virgin Channel 545 and Sky Channel 447) at 19:25 on Wednesday 3rd September 2014.

You can follow the event on social media, on both Twitter and on Facebook. 

Rally FM will also be broadcasting live on the day.
