Too young to have gained your 130mph badge while Brooklands was active? Don’t worry, you can still add one to your badgebar. A series of replicas is now available, made by the same manufacturers as the originals, in the same materials, at £55 each. Choose from BARC and Flying Club designs. Call 01273 622722, or visit www.brooklandsbadges.co.uk.
The two-seater racecar fashion is spreading. You can now experience passenger rides in the back seat of a F5000 car. Based on a 1971 Lola T192, the SFC Twin-Seater uses modern composites and is built to current FIA safety standards, and packs a 700bhp Chevy V8. It is the idea of F5000 racer Nick Shrigly-Fiegl. For details see www.racecarrides.com, or call 01624 880 315.
