Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) has announced today that, in May, the ChampCars will run at Brands Hatch on the 1.2 mile Indy Circuit.

With a support race from the British Touring Cars Championship, it looks like its going to be a great weekend up in Kent.

More info can be found at CART.com

And Just to add, CART announced today that they will follow up the race at Brands, with a return to Lauzitz, Germany and the Euro Speedway a week later.

Dang, y'all have Indy tracks over yonder? I had no idea!

Brands is not like Indy. It twists a lot. Not quite a hilly as Laguna Seca though. Aren't Rockingham (UK) and Oscherslaben ovals? I find them much less interesting - bikes never use them (except Daytona maybe).

Rockingham is an oval. CART has raced the past two seasons at it. Lagging attendance caused them to move the race this year.

The short course at Brands Hatch is called 'Indy' because USAC, the precursor to CART, used the course for a few years in the late 70's.
