Double celebration for Brooklands

Published 17 February 2017

The grand re-opening of the restored finishing straight at Brooklands will take place on the same day as the Double Twelve Motorsport Festival. The event at Brooklands will take place on 17 June – 110 years to the day since the track was originally opened.

The section of track has been hidden from view since 1940 by a Second World War Bellman Hanger, which is now being restored and relocated. Highlights of the re-opening will include a re-enactment of the original opening parade of 17 June, 1907, with veteran cars, displays and demonstrations of surviving Brooklands racing cars and motorcycles, and taxying runs by some of the museum’s historic aircraft.

The well-established format of three separate competitive events of the Double Twelve continues with a sprint, driving tests and concours d’élégance held over two days, with aggregate scores from any two going towards overall Double Twelve awards. With the special interest in this extraordinary milestone in Brooklands’ already incredible history, the quality of entries is expected to be high.

Added to this line-up will be the Test Hill Challenge as well as the chance to see the museum’s collections of vintage cars, aircraft and vehicles. The site will be filled with car club displays, demonstrations and trade stands alongside additional catering, live music and plenty to keep families entertained.
