Brooklands 12 12 Vintage Motor Sport Event Today

Our Family get together today at Brooklands was enhanced when we discovered that the biggest event of the year was in full swing. 

The two day annual 12 12 Motorsport meeting was on where the celebrate early motor racing by using the Test hill and the Mercedes World Racetrack for Speed Trials, Concors etc. 

We went there in the Tin Top rather than the Morgan which was probably a mistake but it would have not been in the show anyway.

Here are some images from the day.

The venue included Car displays as well as these WW2 images presented by this colouful group of singers and dancers. 

The Jazz trio was great and the Two singers provided some pleasant entertainment with their wartime renditions
