McLaren stars for Brooklands

Heikki Kovalainen will join McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton at the Brooklands ‘Double 12’ Festival on June 28/29, a week before the British GP, along with Sir Stirling Moss.

A 2008 McLaren F1 car will be on display, while GP cars of many eras will perform, along with the Mercedes Silver Arrows display team. Named after the split 24-hour races at Brooklands, the new festival combines a concours with driving tests on the banking and the Test Hill, inspired by 1930s JCC rallies.

Competing cars range from Edwardian to recent classics. The event also incorporates the annual Reunion of the Brooklands Society, which will form grids of Double 12 cars, and the Blue Eagles helicopter display team.
