Yup - toilets are on the end of the main grandstand just below the K1 symbol. Theres a accessible WC there for a quick change into your leathers.

I probably won't hang around for the Parade lap - short attention span Laughing

According to Google Maps drive through of the Place...we are well on our own inbetween a seated Stand area overlooking the Pit lane and a Main Concessionaire building, Stopwatch Hospitality Suite.........The place is a little bigger than their nicely laid out map appears to show it.....long walks to see the whole place....looking forward to it though....everythings concentrated around the North Part of the Circuit...Our location Directly Overlooks the Start/Finish Line....must be making respectful atonement of Bimota World championship Winning Days (Day)…..

Toilets are right beside us....Big Space...Would be nice if we could park vans right there for easy loading and getting home

tis a good location - in the morning you can turn left and view the displays - back for lunch and toilet break then off to the right. Splits the day up nicely.
We can leave 2bims on the stand divesting his encyclopedic knowledge of Bimota's to all and sundry Very Happy

On another note...info for all here fresh from Brands Hatch email...LAST REMINDER....Dont forget to print off your entry ticket and take it with you

We hope you're looking forward to Festival Italia at Brands Hatch this Sunday (19 August). To help you make the most of your trip to the circuit, here is some useful information about this event.
Gate opening times
Public admission to the circuit is from 9am.

Southbank Parking
Southbank (inside the venue opposite the rear of the pits) is available for car parking for £5 per car. Click here for more details and to download a pass.

Tickets
If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required.
In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the main MSV office at Brands Hatch.
Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, login to your MSV account to access them. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - you must have your e-tickets printed.
Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.
Adult tickets are £25 on the gate with FREE entry for under-13s. For more information, please call 0843 453 9000.
Grandstand seats
Grandstand seating is available to purchase from the Megastore opposite the Kentagon restaurant. The Paddock Hill Grandstand and Pit Straight Grandstand are both are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s.
Programmes
Official souvenir programmes are available from vendors across the venue and the Megastore for £5. Each programme features in-depth articles on the event along with entry lists and information on the racing timetable.
Grid Walk
There is a free-of-charge grid walk at lunch time on Sunday ahead of the headline Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic Race at 14:20. Please queue at the Paddock Hill Gate in good time ahead of this to take part. Last admission to the Grid Walk is at 14:45.
