The Brook­lands Re­union, Au­gust 13

Classic Cars (UK) - - Month In Cars -

Now that the orig­i­nal start/fin­ish straight has fi­nally emerged, fully re­stored, af­ter more than half a cen­tury buried be­neath a wartime air­craft fac­tory, what’s left of the old Brook­lands cir­cuit is much more us­able – and it’s a cause for cel­e­bra­tion.

Aimed at cre­at­ing a pe­riod at­mos­phere – Thir­ties cos­tume is en­cour­aged for vis­i­tors – the Brook­lands Re­union will be a com­bi­na­tion of car show and his­tor­i­cal recre­ation, with grids of cars thun­der­ing down the straight and onto the bank­ing, and a hill­climb com­pe­ti­tion on the ad­ja­cent test hill. At £11 per adult it’s af­ford­able too – visit brook­landsmu­seum.com for more.
