First Bri­tish GP cars to be re­united

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

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.
