Right guys and girls as everyone had a good time at the grasshopper meet and had a really good turnout dispite the weather at times. i have been talking to Stu that organised this meet last year to see if we can make it another great meet with the :ST:OC lot again
so here it is

BROOKLANDS


THE BIRTH PLACE OF BRITISH MOTORSPORT AND AVIATION


THE PLACE:

Brooklands
Brooklands Museum Trust Limited
Brooklands Road,
Weybridge,
Surrey
KT13 0QN

Brooklands - the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed at Weybridge, Surrey in 1907 - was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century.

"Far from his initial idea of a simple road circuit, Locke King was persuaded that, in order for cars to achieve the highest possible speeds, with the greatest possible safety, the 2¾ mile circuit would need to be provided with two huge banked sections nearly 30 ft. high. The track would be 100 ft. wide, made of concrete and include two long straights, one running for half a mile beside the London to Southampton Railway, and an additional 'Finishing Straight' passing the Paddock and enclosures, bringing the total length of the track to 3¼ miles. This outstanding feat of engineering was built in only nine months and eventually cost Hugh Locke King his personal fortune, a price equal to millions of pounds today.

Before the first race was even run, Brooklands was the venue for a dramatic speed record attempt. A few days after the ceremonial opening of the Motor Course in June 1907, the motor-racing pioneer, Selwyn Francis Edge, used the Track for establishing a 24 hour record. With hundreds of roadside lanterns to mark the inner edge of the Track and bright flares to illuminate the rim Edge drove his green six-cylinder Napier for the whole 24 hours covering 1,581 miles at an average speed of almost 66 miles an hour. Supported by two other Napiers on the run, Edge established a record which stood for 17 years."

OTHER DETAILS:

There will unfortunatly be a entry fee for the meet. This will be £9 paid to brooklands on the gate. This will cover full access to the site, parking in the old paddock area or adjacent car park dependant on space and access into the motor and aviation museums for the day.

I hope you agree that its worth it for a good day at a truly historical location as well as a feature supporting your club. Thank you all for your support with this meet.

Again there will (weather dependant) be the opportunity to have a club photo session on the banking. This will be as a first come first served and limited to a maxiumu of 30.

When entering the premises, there is a long straight. It may be tempting to gun it down here, but the speed limit is 10mph. This needs to be obeyed and respected. We are very lucky to get this venue and any anti social driving will not be tolerated.

Atm we are only aloud 30 cars on the banking and as it's a ZSOC meet they have priorty but I'm am trying to see if we can get a second group on the banking for STOC. If I can get brooklands to say yes then Their will only be 30 spaces, so it's first come first serve I'm afraid

I will let you all know how I get on

I would like to do something like we did at the end of the grasshopper meet, a line of us up the very top of the banking. Will see though.

They won't allow that as it's a very historical place you have to do what they ask so the only way we can get a picture on the banking will be lined up like the picture above. Also their is no chance of getting yours cars to the top and parked as they will just slide down lol as it is so steep
