Brook­lands re­vamp nearly com­plete

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The re­stored fin­ish­ing straight at Brook­lands will be of­fi­cially re-opened dur­ing the venue’s an­nual Dou­ble Twelve Motorsport Fes­ti­val on June 17/18.

This sec­tion of the fa­mous pre-war cir­cuit has been hidden from view since 1940 un­der a WWII Bell­man Hangar, which is be­ing re­stored and re­lo­cated as part of the Brook­lands Air­craft Fac­tory and Race Track Re­vival Project.

The re­open­ing of the straight fol­low­ing restora­tion will take place on Satur­day June 17, 110 years to the day since Brook­lands was orig­i­nally opened. The event will be marked by a reen­act­ment of the orig­i­nal open­ing pa­rade with veteran cars and demon­stra­tions.
