Sadly the powerful local residents' lobby means that it is impossible that
Brands will ever host another GP - despite the fact that there was racing
there long before their houses were built.
As that it? Local activism? Being in the states, I've never really dug into it much.
IIRC Bernie had granted Brands Hatch Leisure a contract to run the British
GP at Brands from 2002 onwards but this was conditional on major
improvements being made to the circuit and its facilities. BHL actually got
planning permission but this was called in after protests by environmental
groups and the residents of a local executive housing estate. BH is still
subject to a curfew on running engines (6.30p.m. to 10.00a.m.I think).
