The Brooklands museum is always a popular show, its held in the remains of the old Brooklands race track which is now a motor raacing and aircraft museum, it even has its own concorde that you can sit in and go for a simulated flight.

Our parking spot this year was on part of the old race circuit which is a very steep banking, although it doesn’t look that steep in the photos the Minis handbrakes were insufficient to hold it and it needed to be left in gear which was also insufficient so needed wheel chocks as well!

The show is a good one, in Weybridge, Surrey, a hour and a hlaf drive approximately. Usual mix of Minis and traders, a good place to get a stash of bits early into the Mini show season.

The site has a number of museums, aircraft and racing cars including a formula 1 museum with various F1 cars on display, well worth a visit.
