Brooklands VSCC Driving Tests

February 02, 2014  •  2 Comments

It was a pleasure to see blue skies and some glorious sunshine for our day at Brooklands today for the VSCC Driving Tests. Lots of lovely pre-war cars, being put through their paces by their respective drivers. The tests consist of a route marked out with cones that have to be completed against the clock. Despite the age of the cars involved there was a lot of spirited driving being done! One of the main joys of attending this event, is seeing such a wide variety of machinery being used, some, more suited to the task in hand, than others.

 

This very nostalgic scene greeted us when we arrived.

 

A Singer Porlock up on the banking.

 

Do Austin 7's really go this fast?

 

Or corner this quickly? 

 

Red Wheels at speed, and driver concentrating hard!

 

May only have three wheels, and limited traction, but still got a fair turn of speed.

 

Absolutely glorious Alfa 6C 1750, driven as it was intended to be driven, with enthusiasm.

 

Three wheels makes cornering a bit tricky, not that you would have known looking at this Morgan being driven with gusto.

 

Appropriately named Riley Brooklands, in full flow.

 

Travelling with a can of Shell, just in case he needs it!

 

A glorious little Bug, resting in the glorious sunshine.

 

Hope he isn't calling the AA

 

Seems to have got a bit confused when he was buying his crocodile skin bag, or perhaps this was the cheaper alternative.

 

So cold, even the radiators needed woolly hats on!
