BROOKLANDS MORGANS' DAY on Sunday 6th October 2013

It is Rare for a Blog to be written ahead of an event but in this case I want to advertise the event to help support the Brooklands Museum Charity of which we are Club Members. 

On Sunday the 6th October, The Brooklands Museum will be holding the annual Morgans' Day when the Display Area in front of the Old Clubhouse will be dedicated to the Morgan Marque.

During the afternoon the Test Hill and short part of the Banking will be open for Morgan Owners to run their cars and I believe that this year there will also be a 'Cavalcade of Morgans invited to make a circuit of the adjacent Mercedes World Test Track.

My Event Notice to the Morgan Centenary Roadster 100 Register

Brooklands Morgans' Day is approaching once again on Sunday 6th October 2013.

The Morgan Centenary Roadster 100 Register Members are invited to join together in our Special Display Area located in the Brooklands Paddock.

Last Year we were the largest single Morgan Group and it would be great if you are able to join with us there again this year

Register Members who have now changed their Morgan Roadster 100 to a different Morgan Model are also welcome to join us there this year with you new cars.

We already know that member Chris Attwood, who organises our Parking Area, and myself are planning to come along. Chris will be contacting the Brooklands Team to arrange our Parking Area in the Paddock where our cars will all be on show to the many visitors.

To make Chris's task easier it would be ideal to have some idea of the numbers planning to join us. Please Pre Register by sending a email to myself to to let us know if you will or will not be able to join us there.

For those able to join us there, we are planning to gather in the Cafeteria at 11am for a Coffee and Chat. Last year one new member was not aware of this arrangement and sadly we never met.

The Brooklands Museum area is open from 10am to 5pm and we all get to use the 'Members Entrance' at the Campbell Gate on the B374 road. This lane brings you straight into the Museum Area where Marshals will direct you to the 'Roadster 100' Parking Area. Morgan Owners must not follow the usual signposts to the Mercedes World Entrance as you will end up on the wrong side of the River Wey See Map). Non Morgan owner do park their cars at 'Mercedes World' and then cross the Footbridge to the Museum.

The Cafeteria will be serving a few options of Hot Food suitable for a Sunday Lunch and a range of Sandwiches etc. This is located in the Majestic and Historical  Club Building also located in the Paddock.

The Brooklands Museum is located in the Home of British Motor Sport where some exciting Morgan Three Wheeler Racing took place during the 1920's. The Museum is located inside the remains of the first ever Oval Banked Motor Racing Circuit ( which also became the home of Wellington Bomber Manufacturing during WW2 ).

Brooklands makes a perfect venue for us Register Members to me and Present our cars. It would be fantastic if those members who have not been before could come along and join with us. The Aircraft and Transport Museums will also be open on the day.

Brooklands Museum - Your Visit

The Concorde Experience

The Brooklands ConcordeConcorde G BBDGConcorde Experience at BrooklandsConcorde G-BBDGBrooklands is the Home of Concorde - more than 30% of every airframe, British and French, was manufactured here. Discover the leading role played by Brooklands in the Concorde story by taking the Concorde Experience.
G-BBDG was the third Concorde built in Britain and this country’s first production Concorde. First flown in February 1974, ‘Delta Golf’, as she is known, carried out a large part of the certification work that saw Concorde flying in commercial service between 1976 and 2003.  Delta Golf was the fastest production Concorde and in 1974 she became the first aircraft ever to carry 100 people at twice the speed of sound - 1,350mph. 
Take the Brooklands Concorde Experience and see inside one of the world’s most famous aircraft.  Relive the excitement of the supersonic age, on the only Concorde accessible in South East England.  The 30 minute visit on board Concorde includes an exhibition in the rear cabin about how the aircraft was built and its connection with Brooklands.  After passing through a display of Concorde interiors through the decades, take your seat in the front cabin for a virtual flight, piloted by Captain Mike Bannister. The flight deck may be photographed before you leave the aircraft.
Please note: on each Saturday up until 9th February, the first Concorde Experience will be at 12:25pm. Extra flights will be available in the afternoons.
Please Book Early! 
The Concorde Experience is a timed tour and places are limited. We recommend that you purchase your tickets soon after arrival at the Museum to avoid disappointment.
