Images from Brooklands Morgan Day 7/10/2012

Brooklands Museum, Weybridge, Surrey

I make no apology for the large number of my photos which feature the Morgan Roadster 100' in this Topic. R100 owner Chris Attwood undertook the task of inviting as many of the Members of The Morgan Centenary Roadster 100 Register to gather together at Brooklands under our Registers Banner in the places allocated to us by the Brooklands Museum organisers.

We were Eight Cars in Total with Seven Roadster 100 and Register Founder, David Harris's New Power Upgraded Roadster.

The weather was kind to us once the Fog and Haze started to clear into warm sunshine. The event was not as well supported by the wider Morgan Community with many friends missing this year. The Test Hill was opened in the afternoon but only a dozen cars used it for a couple of laps each.

It was a fantastic day with Brooklands living up to its best. We need another day to re visit the dispays as we spent much of the day meeting and chatting - wonderful.
