Brooklands Supercar Saturday is a petrolhead gathering with more variety than the London Paladium, including track demos, Brooklands Hill challenges and a range of super machinery that lifts tachycardia to new level.
Organiser Phil Ward explains:
“We’re always surprised by the unexpected gems that turn out for our annual Supercar days.
“In recent years we’ve welcomed everything from modern Ferraris, Jaguars, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Lamborghinis, BMWs and Bugattis, to E-type Jags and Porsche 911s of all eras, along with AC Cobra, Lotus Elan, American muscle cars, a DeLorean – and ‘Twiggy’s’ Miura. And every year brings something new.”
Enthusiasts who bring their supercars to the event, this year on Saturday 28 July, are not only able to display their cars, but are also invited to apply to take part in the track demonstrations of selected cars on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit and individual runs up the challenging Test Hill (applications must be made in advance).
This allows the spectating public the rare chance to see these high-performance cars in action, as well as inspecting them at close quarters in the dramatic setting of the historic Brooklands venue – which has benefitted from recent redevelopment, including an extensive new display area on the restored start-finish straight leading to the original banked track.
The event has proved extremely popular with car clubs, which are allocated dedicated areas for members to display their cars.
Owners of supercars selected to take part in the live action demonstrations also receive a complimentary priority entry pass – little wonder, then, that the event is so popular with car clubs and their members.
