Fast, Furious and Accessible!

Banbury, UK, Thursday 15th May 2002: Fast, furious racing on slick tyres, with overtaking guaranteed - that's NDS EuroBOSS-- as 20 cars, 18 with an F1 pedigree, blast into Brands Hatch on 18th/19th May for the second round of Europe's fastest motor racing series.

With an open paddock and relaxed atmosphere, spectators can admire at close quarters the screaming V12 Ferrari, the howling V10 Arrows, Jordan and Tyrrell and the thundering V8 Benettons, Reynards and Minardi, and hear these awesome machines as they blast off around the circuit at speeds of up to 190mph.

NDS EuroBOSS is the feature race of the csma Classic Festival which offers two days packed with track action, as well as stunning air displays by the Royal Marines, RAF Falcons, a' Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight' and non-stop off-track family entertainment. Some of the racing highlights include;

Saturday 18th May: Classic Motorcycles, Classic Clubmans Championship, Classic Formula Ford 1600 Championship, BCV8 Championship and NDS EuroBOSS.

Sunday 19th May: Classic Formula Ford 2000 Championship, Classic Thunder Championship, Moss Thoroughbred Sportscar Championship, Austin Healey Club Championship and the big race of the day, round two of NDS EuroBOSS.

The Star Performers: Donington Park race winner Phil Andrews, from Birmingham, is looking to make it two in a row after a magnificent driving display in a 1996 Benetton V10 saw him slice through the field from the rear of the grid to take the chequered flag ahead of team mate Klaas Zwart in the Ferrari. Twenty two year old South African hotshot, Earl Goddard, will ensure that Phil won't have it all his own way in the big race on Sunday afternoon in a 1994 V10 Benetton in which Michael Schumacher clinched his first F1 Drivers Championship.

Local Hopefuls: Anthony Hansford from Tunbridge Wells, driving the Eurobrun Judd V8 is looking for a class victory in the NDS EuroBOSS Masters whilst Londoners Eddie McLurg in a Footwork V8 and Max Wakefield driving a 1997 Benetton V10 formerly piloted by Jean Alesi, battle it out for top honours on their home circuit hoping to further their title hopes.

Raceday passes are available from Brands Hatch circuit on the day priced at £15, with children under 16 admitted free when accompanying a paying adult.
