Brook­lands it­self is an ex­tremely spe­cial venue as it’s the site of the world’s first pur­pose-built rac­ing cir­cuit. Enough said. What makes it so en­joy­able on Drive-It Day is its re­laxed at­mos­phere. Turn up, park up, have a look around!

This is per­fectly en­cap­su­lated by Tony North (pic­tured). He rocked up last year in his heav­ily mod­i­fied 1968 Tri­umph Her­ald drag car, drop­ping jaws and break­ing necks as he en­tered. Next to him was a Land Rover Dis­cov­ery. And op­po­site him was a Tri­umph TR7. At other shows, cars are care­fully cat­e­gorised and care­fully placed. And in a way, it kind of ru­ins all the free-and-easy fun.

Usual ad­mis­sion prices ap­ply. En­try to the Drive-It Day park­ing for pre1983 ve­hi­cles is via the Camp­bell Gate off Brook­lands Road. www.brook­landsmu­ 10am-5pm
