BROOKLANDS RACING: Racing at the Brooklands Double 12 includes driving tests and a Concours d'Elegance over two days, seemingly every type of car, motorcycle and even a pair of Segway's had a go at the Hill Climb, then there was the matter of hauling a car up the hill with ropes and a new record time was set.

THE HILL CLIMB:

BENTLEY POWER:

THE FLAG DROPS AND A BENTLEY CHARGES UP THE HILL

ROLLS ROYCE - MERLIN POWER:

 

 

 

SELECTED HILL CLIMB ENTRANTS:

 

 

THE HILL - SEGWAYS AND MAN POWER: Two Segways had a go at the hill, both floundered just after half way, surprisingly they were ridden successfully back down the hill. A new record was set hauling a 'car' up the hill.

SEGWAY 'HILL CLIMB' MACHINES

MAN POWER 'EVENTUALLY' MADE IT TO THE TOP

THE HILL - STARTLINE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS: All these images were captured in the 'staging area' just prior to the drivers and riders undertaking their hill climb run, some competitors had a certain look about them!

 

 

 

 

THE DRIVING TEST: Utilizing part of the original Brooklands Banking, the driving tests consisted of various manoeuvres around hay bales.

 

 

 

 

THE SPEED SPRINT ON THE MERCEDES BENZ WORLD CIRCUIT:

THE 1907 BERLIET-CURTISS RACER SHOWED AN ENORMOUS TURN OF SPEED

THE 1902 DENNIS
