Motor Museum Weybridge, 12 Bikes joined this mainland run which was a change from
the normal runs the Club has on the mainland as we went with the visit in mind.
This meant a run up the A3M rather than our usual countryside route, which meant
we had 3 hours at Brooklands arriving at 11.30 with a 2.30 leave time. The trip
back was a leisurely 2.5 hours through some great countryside. The only negative
was a cloud burst just as we were leaving. (thanks to Michel tail end charlie)

- the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed at Weybridge,
Surrey in 1907 - was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace
of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering
and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century.
Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits
ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalleled collection
of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington
Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and the only
Concorde with public access in South East England.
