This Christmas, the Kenrish Times has teamed up with Brands Hatch owners MotorSport Vision to launch a special competition for four readers.

We're offering hard working members of the community the chance to enjoy an unforgettable Christmas treat: a festive day out at the famous Kent circuit.

If somebody in your local area has dedicated their year to helping others, has suffered a particularly difficult time, or generally deserves a pick-me-up, we'd like you to nominate them for our special Christmas competition.

A group of four winners will be invited to Brands Hatch on Sunday 13 December to enjoy a high speed festive treat, as two will take part in a RaceMaster circuit driving experience.

With RaceMaster, they'll receive tuition in the powerful BMW M3 - capable of 0-60mph in just four seconds - from an expert instructor, before completing some flying laps in a Formula 1-style single seater race car.

You can even nominate deserving people who haven't yet got their driver's licence, as Brands Hatch is also providing a high speed passenger ride in the superb BMW M3 with a professional driver at the wheel for one winner. The younger members of your community can also enjoy a special day out, as the Kent circuit is offering one lucky teenager the chance to enjoy a YoungDrive! introductory driving lesson in a BMW 1 Series.

Junior nominees must be aged at least 13 and measure 4'10'' tall in order to win a basic driving skills lesson from a DSA-approved instructor.

For more information about the driving experience prizes call 0870 950 9000 or visit

l To nominate someone you know for our Brands Hatch Christmas competition, just write between 200 and 250 words describing who your nominee is and why they deserve a special day at Brands Hatch this Christmas.

Send your entry together with your full name, address, telephone number and email address to Joe Shackley, Brands Competition, Kentish Times Newspapers, Roxby House, Station Road, Sidcup, Kent, DA15 7EJ.

All Entries must be received by Friday, December 7.
