The UK’s largest annual motor race will return to Silverstone on 27th October for six hours of unbeatable racing on the full Grand Prix circuit.
2016 saw a record breaking team entry to the 66th running of the Birkett, with over 350 cars taking part. 2018 promises to be just as exciting, with teams of four to six drivers battling it out for both outright and handicapped honours over the six hour event.
Each team has to lap the circuit as many times as they can within the six hours, with only one of their team cars running at any one time. As one comes into the pit lane, the next can be dispatched out onto the circuit.
Who Are Team Brit?
Team BRIT is a competitive motor racing team consisting of disabled drivers. Many are ex or serving military troops who have sustained serious injuries and are disabled.
We are a competitive racing team, not a charity, and we race against teams of able-bodied drivers on a totally level playing field — something that no other sport can offer.
We aim to make racing history and take a team to the world famous Le Mans 24hr endurance race, becoming the first ever all-disabled team to do so.
Many of our drivers have taken part in karting events through our linked charity, KartForce. Team BRIT provides the opportunity for them to step up to competitive endurance racing.
