REIGNING DTM CHAMPION GARY PAFFETT APPEARING AT BRANDS' DTM AND GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

Gary Paffett, reigning DTM Champion and Team McLaren Mercedes test driver, says he is looking forward to being part of two highlights of the British motorsport calendar in the upcoming week.

This weekend sees Paffett attending the eagerly anticipated DTM race at Brands Hatch. Paffett, who competed in the past three seasons of DTM, says he is proud to see the circuit hosting the world's fastest touring car series for the first time.

"I'm thrilled the DTM is here at Brands this weekend, it's something I pushed for when I was competing in the series, so it's great to see it happen and I'm really looking forward to doing some promotional work with the team over the weekend."

The Haverhill man starts the DTM weekend with a round table with the media in the Mercedes Benz Team Hospitality at 11am today and will be watching the 82-lap race of the Indy circuit with the team on Sunday at 12pm.

The activities mark the start of a typically busy week for Paffett: at next weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed the Team McLaren Mercedes test driver will be taking the Team McLaren Mercedes MP4-20 out on Goodwood's esteemed hill climb, held on the 7th-9th July.
