Champion of Brands


The Champion of Brands provides the Brands Hatch faithful with a regular supply of Formula Ford 1600 racing throughout the season, and the category that dates back to 1967 will be on-track three times at MSVR race meetings during the 2023 season.

The Champion of Brands was one of Formula Ford racing's leading championships during the late 1970s and 1980s, before disappearing from race schedules. Re-introduced by MSVR and James Beckett Motorsport in 2010, the Champion of Brands has since provided a welcome home for Formula Fordsters, providing them the opportunity to race their cars regularly at the legendary venue that hosted the first ever Formula Ford event fifty-six years ago. 

The Champion of Brands runs within rounds of the United Formula Ford Championship, and enjoys its own points table that provides an opportunity for a driver from any one of its five classes to become the end-of-season 'Champion of Brands'. The reigning champion is Chris Sharples, who drove to victory and the 2022 title at the wheel of his Historic Class (cars manufactured Pre '72) Palliser WDF1.
