Don’t miss the traditional VSCC New Year Driving Tests at Brooklands this weekend
The New Year Driving Tests follow on from another successful edition of the Club’s Winter Driving Tests at Bicester Heritage in December, as we look forward to another impressive entry of over 60 Pre-war Touring and Sports-Cars for this favourite event on the Club’s calendar. They will tackle 14 tests located around the famous site, including Test Hill and the Banking, as well as on the original Campbell Circuit adjacent to the Mercedes Benz World site.
Expect to see yet another wonderfully eclectic line-up of historic machinery on display, from Club Driving Test regular, Alex Pilkington’s stunning 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C, the 1927Alvis 12/50 TG Sports Tourer of VSCC Past President Peter Glover (2002-04) and young Charlie Martin in his 1931/35 Riley Special, winner of the Winter Driving Tests at Bicester last month.
In addition, we welcome representatives from a host of other celebrated Pre-war marques, including Amilcar, Austin, Bugatti, Citroen, Fiat, Ford, Frazer Nash, Humber, MG, Morgan, Morris, Singer, Triumph, Trojan, Vauxhall and Wolseley.
As is tradition, a strong turnout of Spectators is expected, many in their own Pre-war machinery. The assembled display, in addition to the Museum’s other celebrated attractions including the recently restored Stratosphere Chamber and new 4D Theatre make it a fantastic day out for all the family (see www.brooklandsmuseum.com for more information).
