MAKING BROOKLANDS SAFI
FOR 160 MILES AN HOUR?
The recent great increase in the speeds of cars at Brooklands suggests the feasibility of erecting a strong wooden paling at the top of each banking. The paling would be a continuation
of the curve of the existing track, and would be used in emergencies as part of the track for passing at high speed.
Whilst this emergency structure would not be normally used as part of the track, its existence would give greater confidence to drivers of ultra-fast cars when passing near the top of the banking.
It is conceivable that it might, in fact, prevent a recurrence of recent fatalities.
