As in previous years, the Brooklands Re-union, devised by Bill Boddy and Dudley Gahagan with the blessing of Motor Sport, will take place this month, but as the traditional last Saturday was not convenient for the owners of the track, the date is June 11th.
By courtesy of Vickers-Armstrongs Ltd. and the British Aircraft Corporation, visitors will be taken for a conducted tour in their cars of what is left of the old Motor Course, now nearly sixty years old, visiting the Members’ banking, Test Hill, Members’ Hill, the Vickers’ memorial to the pioneer aviators, racing drivers and racing motorcyclists who frequented the track, the aerodrome, Railway straight and Byfleet banking. Admission is free, but tickets must be applied for to the Motor Sport offices, And will be issued only to those having some pre-war associations with Brooklands. Cars will enter by the old Fork gate, from 2 p.m., to move off at around 2.30 p.m. Tea will be taken at the “Hand & Spear,” in Weybridge, haunt of drivers and riders after race meetings, where the bar will be open, guests paying for what they require. Those who wish to attend should apply at once for admission tickets, quoting their credentials and s.a.e.
