Reporting our 22nd Annual Reunion at Brooklands (Motor Sport, August 1989), the editor refers to the Society as being ‘very much alive’. Indeed it is, and it is our work to secure preservation at Brooklands and the formation of a trust which makes the opening of Brooklands possible.
DSJ refers to access to Brooklands as being by Gallaher’s private entrance. In fact this is a public entrance by virtue of the terms of the lease held by the Brooklands Museum Trust Limited. The public then have a right of way along the Campbell Road Circuit, access along Members Banking having been lost when part was quite wrongly destroyed.
We support Mr Hicklin’s letter pressing for the return of Sir Malcolm Campbell’s 300 mph Bluebird, but not his suggestion that it be returned to its spiritual home at Beaulieu. Its actual home is at Brooklands, where it was designed, constructed and demonstrated.
