On Sunday 16th August, we headed back down to Brooklands for their Brooklands Reunion, which is a celebration of all things pre-war (When Brooklands was a competitive race track) especially those connected to the venue. Even some of the crowd were dressed in period attire, and with all the period assorted vehicles, motorbikes and indeed push bikes, the place was full of nostalgic scenes to take in. The weather was kind (dry) and a good sized crowd was in attendance.
As usual we started off be getting there early and having a close look at the vehicles on display, and this pair of fuel caps caught my eye.
The first major 'event' of the day were the race starts, made up of grids of suitable vehicles from that era.
The motorcyclist joined in the fun as well.
Despite their age the cars were still pretty quick off the mark!
Three wheeled Morgans are always entertaining as the solitary rear wheel fights for grip.
Rather more sedate in styling, but still immaculately turned out.
All bare metal and built for speed.
Then it was time to walk over to Mercedes Benz World for the cavalcade on their track, as the driver put the cars through their paces, and a fine collection of cars they were too.
An aeroplane engine bursting out of the bonnet, means this is one rapid machine.
All ages enjoyed the outing!
Leg power rather than horse power!
The day was rounded off with runs up the infamous Test Hill, and the Merlin engine Handlye Special tried its hardest to wear its rear tyres out in the process!
Once again a very enjoyable event, superb machinery and spirited driving in the unique relaxed atmosphere that Brooklands does so well. Many thanks to all that made the day possible.
