Brooklands Blat

October 2009

Our journey began at Caterham Cars showroom in Caterham aound 8am where Andy Noble and his ever willing team prepared bacon rolls and coffee to warm and refresh us before the drive.

After a short briefing we left caterham around 9.30am to embark on a somewhat meandering yet picturesque route through the leafy lanes of Surrey. This would give plenty of opportunity to follow other cars unwittingly going the wrong way, a rite of passage for owners new and old.

After a long blat on some 100 miles we arrived at Brooklands Museum around 1pm and made our way to our own parking area. The idea being to grab some lunch and then make our way to the famous banking for a photo shoot.

Brooklands is unique, the worlds first purpose built motor racing circuit constructed in 1907. The birthplace of British Motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout 8 decades of the 20th century.

Drink in the atmosphere that reveals the secrets of Brooklands, the place where the great British adventure in speed and altitude all began. The museum displays a wide range of Brooklands related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalled collection of Hawker and Vickers/BAC-built aircraft, including the only Concorde with public access in South East England.
