From central London to Brands Hatch motor racing circuit, where the Paralympics Road Cycling is being held for the London 2012 Paralympics, is a little over 20 miles (32kms). Brands Hatch is south east of the city and in average traffic conditions it should only take about 45 minutes to drive there from London.

Brands Hatch is not far off the M25 motorway which circles London, so if you are staying close to the M25 you can get there by driving around the M25 and exiting onto the M20, then follow the signs for Brands Hatch.
