The 2003 BRDC British GT series comes to a dramatic conclusion next weekend [27-28 September] when a superb three-way battle for honours sees TVR trying desperately to see of the dual challenge from Mosler.

The weekend, which is supported by Malaysian Airlines, will be held on the awesome Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit and includes a fabulous support programme featuring F3, FFord and the Holiday Inn SEAT Cupra Super Prix, but all eyes will be on the track when the eleventh and final round of sportscar action gets underway.

The best British GT entry of the season will put as many as 30 cars on the grid for what promises to be a dramatic 75-minute race. The focus of attention will be the contest at the head of the race as three teams battle for the overall title. Going into the Brands race, just five points split Shaun Balfe/Jamie Derbyshire (Mosler MT900R), Piers Johnson/Shane Lynch (TVR T400R) and Tom Herridge (Mosler MT900R), meaning that it is virtually a case of winner takes all.

In the GT Cup class, a three-car Porsche squad from Tech 9/Gruppe M, headed by 2003 champions Patrick Pearce and Matt Griffin, will take on Morgans, Ferraris and Lotuses as the category fields its biggest entry to date.

Ensuring tremendous support race action are twin races for the Carlube TVR Tuscan Challenge the Powertrain Caterham R400 Challenge as well as the SEAT Cupra action. Completing the fabulous programme are the Dunlop Mini Se7en and Dunlop Mini Miglia Challenges and the final round of the BRDC Single-Seater Championship.

Rob Huff, Stefan Hodgetts and Gordon Shedden are the SEAT front-runners, while the season-long TVR Tuscan battle between Lee Caroline and David Mason will finally be resolved. In the Caterhams, Dan Stilp and Dillon Battistini will continue their fierce battle, which has one round remaining after the Brands double-header.
