Shane "Shakey'' Byrne from Sittingbourne is hoping for a record fourth title at Brands Hatch this weekend when the 2013 MCE Insurance British Superbike championship comes to an end.
We speak to Shane, fellow rider Alex Lowes and race organiser Stuart Higgs.
Video. The fierce rivalry between Formula 1 racing drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda is the subject of a new film, "Rush", which had its premiere last night.
Many of the extras in the movie, set in the 1970s, are Kent motor racing fans. And - as you might expect - the Brands Hatch race circuit has a starring role. Jonathan Marland reports.
A dog at an animal centre in Kent has been waiting for more than 250 days for a new owner.
Lady, the 4-year-old Boxer Cross, has received little interest from potential owners at the Battersea Brands Hatch Centre.
The average stay for a Battersea dog is just 35 days.
Lady was the first dog through Battersea Brands Hatch's doors in 2013. She was brought in because her owners could no longer care for her.
She was pregnant when she arrived and once she had given birth to her seven puppies, they were all re-homed quickly.
Richard King, the Centre Manager at Battersea Brands Hatch has said, "She is such a gorgeous girl and will make a fantastic companion. We just can't understand why she has been with us for so long."

Siblings Brenda (above) and Niall (below) are part of a litter of three unusual kittens, each born with six toes on all four paws.
A litter of three kittens all born with an extra toe on each paw are looking for a new home after their owner was unable to care for them.
Shortly after they arrived at a Brands Hatch cattery, staff noticed there was something different about the kittens - they had 12 extra toes between them.
Cats normally have five toes on each paw but some cats, known as Polydactyl cats or mitten cats, are born with a genetic mutation that gives them extra toes.
Pudding, Brenda and Niall will be ready for rehoming once they are nine weeks old.
Three five week old kittens - recent arrivals at the Brands Hatch Battersea Dogs and Cats home - have been born with an extra toe on each of their paws.
Pudding, Brenda and Niall, and their mother arrived at the centre when their owner fell ill and was unable to care for them.
Two men have been jailed for two years for the theft of a stand-alone cash machine containing £20,000. David Ronald Wilson, aged 40, of no fixed address and Jason Maurice Reader, aged 37, of Valley Drive, Gravesend, both pleaded guilty to the offence which took place in Brands Hatch on October 3.
Wilson also pleaded guilty to taking a vehicle without the consent of the owner and driving while disqualified and with no insurance. He has been disqualified from driving for four years. Reader also pleaded guilty to allowing himself to be carried in a stolen vehicle.
