Brooklands Retrojumble & Classic Car Show

Sunday 24th July 2016

The Brooklands Show took place the morning after the AGM at Fairmile and was only a 20 minute convoy/cruise away after breakfast.

We parked up at the back of one of the Museums and lined up with tops down in the sunshine which lasted all day. This is a wonderful venue with several automotive museums, a bus museum, an aircraft museum and a large display of historic aircraft. You could go inside most of the aircaraft and we certainly enjoyed the 'Concorde Experience'.

The event is well supported by car clubs and a huge number of classics were parked in every available space, on the historic banking, under aircraft wings, and around the various museum buildings.

Wandering up and down the banking and around the historic buildings was a pleasure in the warm sunshine and we had a good lunch in the Members Club House.

We found an early Legend Speedster parked up on the banking amongst many other air-cooled VWs and early Porsches.

The owner was not a member of the Club then, but may be by now!

Going round the various museums is always interesting, and although I have been to Brooklands several times, I always find something new .

This is a great show and I hope we come here again in 2017 with similarly great weather.
