A Formula One Day Out

1 June had sounded like an ideal date for a visit to Brooklands Museum, but the temperature felt more like February and driving rain was the order of the day when we convened in Surrey and splashed through the puddles to the home of aviation and speed. From Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to V1 engines, it’s all here and enthusiasts and casual visitors alike found plenty to keep themselves entertained.

The rain had even affected the audio-visual facilities inside, so some of the 4-D shows could not run and we were not able to hold our hats and enjoy a vintage lap of the original Brooklands race track, but Concorde was, thankfully, still available – and much more our style!
