First British GP cars to be reunited
Four cars from the grid of the inaugural British Grand Prix held at Brooklands in 1926 will be reunited at Windsor Castle’s Concours of Elegance on 2-4 September.
The event is part of celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday.
The Delage 155B, Halford Special, Talbot 700 and Thomas Special represent both the beginning of the top level of British motorsport and also the year of the Queen’s birth. Each of the cars has a story to tell, such as the Delage that had to make frequent stops to ensure that the driver’s feet did not get seriously burnt.
In addition to the historic racing cars, the displays will include 10 ‘revolutionary’ British cars – one from each decade of the Queen’s life – including a Bentley 3-litre, Land Rover Series I, Mini and McLaren F1.
