Brooklands 2010

New Year's Day Event
Vintage & Classic Car gathering at Brooklands Museum

Page 1 of 3

There had been quite a bit of interest on the R.S.S.O.C. forum about the NYD meet at Brooklands so I made arrangements for a club display big enough for 15 cars.  It was quite nerve racking as the weather had forecast severe snow in various places, so I wondered, apart from me,  who else would be mad enough to turn up. 

I had planned to meet up at the Tescos Extra store very near the Brooklands Museum.  I arrived at after a 2 hour drive.  It was frosty and very cold (inside the car as well as outside!), but there was no snow as promised!   Very shortly I was pleased and relieved to see a few Scimitars and Sabres arrive, including John Valler's ex-works Reliant Sabre 4, which I wasn't expecting, so that was a very nice surprise.

After about half an hour we had an impressive display of 14 Sabres and Scimitars in Tescos car park.

Once we figured out how to get exit the over complicated Tescos car park, we drove the short distance in convoy following Geoff Cooper, who new a short cut to the Brooklands Museum. > DSCF7158.jpg (136532 bytes) DSCF7160.jpg (116481 bytes) DSCF7164.jpg (210067 bytes) DSCF7167.jpg (120716 bytes)
On arrival we had a great view of the banking before we parked up in a semi- circle.
