Celebrating its 23rd year, Brooklands test hill is the venue for all things Austin and Morris, with a little flexibility to allow the odd MG and Wolseley. Hosted by Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, the prestigious former racetrack with its famous banking puts together 200 of the UKs most popular and loved British brands.
The venue also has a long and proud history with aviation, and the backdrop and serene calm nature of the venue has an air of war-time history which is fitting for the large amount of the older cars on display. Owners are also invited to pose by their cars on the bank at the end of the day, providing the owners a unique photographic opportunity.
