The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival 2017 - Last Call for Entries!

Entries close at the end of day for the 2017 Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival, as tradition jointly organized again by Brooklands Museum and the Vintage Sports-Car Club, which will take place on 17/18 June.
This year’s edition of the celebrated annual motoring event will be marked by the grand re-opening of the restored ‘Finishing Straight’ of the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit on the Saturday, 110 years to the day since the track was originally opened (CLICK HERE to read more).
 
Alongside this historic occasion, the weekend will incorporate the traditional motorsport elements coordinated by the VSCC, including Saturday’s VSCC Speed Trials, Sunday’s Double Twelve Driving Tests and the Double Twelve Concours across both day.
 
The closing deadline for this year’s event is fast-approaching with entries closing on Monday 5 June so if you would like to be a part of the revered Double Twelve competition, don't delay and submit your entries now.

The well-established format of three separate competitive events, with aggregate scores from any two going towards overall Double Twelve awards, continues.
 
The structure of the competitions allows entrants to choose which elements best suit them and their vehicle across both days making full use of the historic terrain at Brooklands and the circuit at neighbouring venue Mercedes-Benz World. All three competitions will have their own individual awards, in addition to the aggregate Double Twelve trophies.
 
The classes within each competition are structured to give all ages of car from veterans to 1980s classics, and all types from nimble sports cars and thoroughbred racers to stately tourers, an equal chance of picking up an award, making this a very inclusive weekend for Competitors, and an enthralling one for Spectators.
 
Saturday’s Speed Trials are strictly for Pre-war cars and this year will form another round of the VSCC’s MSA-registered Speed Championship this year; the Driving Tests and Concours are open to vehicles up to the 1970s, and include classes for vehicles of a type that could have raced at Brooklands had the track re-opened after the Second World War, such as Jaguar XK120s and AC Cobras.
 
Each event will have its own class and overall winners, but to qualify for a Brooklands Double Twelve award, an entrant must compete in any two of the three events and the combined scores of these will decide their Double Twelve placing.
 
All the up-to-date Festival information can be found on the Double Twelve page at www.brooklandsmuseum.com. Entrants are offered the exclusive use of a hospitality area in the charming, period splendour of the Edwardian Clubhouse, the chance to drive on motoring ‘hallowed ground’ and when competing, and will be in the capable hands of the VSCC and Brooklands Marshals.
 
In addition to the competitive events, there is a list of other attractions throughout the weekend. The ever-popular Test Hill Challenge will be running on both days, providing much merriment as it invites practically anything on wheels (or legs) to reach the summit of that most famous peak, including the infamous car pull by local Air Cadets. There will also be a Family Activity area and countless Car Clubs will be coming along to showcase their cars.
 
The weekend will culminate in the prize-giving ceremony in the main Paddock on the Sunday. For spectators, a day ticket gives access to all areas on both sites, Paddock and grandstand views along with the Museums exhibits, collections and facilities.
 
Spectator Tickets will be at the normal Museum admission prices of £11 for adults, £10 for Seniors and Students, £6 for Children (aged 5-16) and £30 for a Family ticket admitting 2 adults and up to 3 children. The Concorde Experience is £5 for adults and £3 for children, and rides in the 4D Theatre, including the Napier-Railton Experience, are £4 for adults and £2 for children. Visit www.brooklandsmuseum.com for more information.
