at the start of day seven, the clutch gave out. We switched sides and became marshals for the last two days so were able to cheer the winners into the finish at Cascais. It was a needle match to the end, with the first car home amassing just three minutes and four seconds of penalties and less than a minute separating the top four cars”.


Henry Surtees Foundation Brooklands Challenge kart race On Tuesday 11th July Mercedes-Benz World and the Museum will once again be hosting the annual Henry Surtees Foundation Brooklands Challenge. This will be the first year without John and as a tribute the organisers have assembled a number of his motorcycles and cars, including the 1960 AV Agusta, the F Norton 500cc prototype, the 1949 Vincent Grey Flash and the 350cc Manx Norton. Cars will include TS7, TS10, TS15, TS19 and the Lola T70 Can-Am car. The John Surtees Tribute Parade will start on the track at 2.00pm and both the parade and the kart race are free to watch. Drivers and riders for the parade will be Damon Hill, Derek Bell, Stuart Graham and Paul Hollywood. All of the motor cars and cycles will be retained on display at Mercedes-Benz World until the end of August and as a result the BTM plans to hold an evening tribute to the life of John Surtees later in the year. Full details will be published when they become available.


The Rob Walker Centenary Exhibition and Parade Brooklands Trust Member Rob Rennie is also a member of Dorking Museum’s Temporary Proj- ects Team. He is involved in a really interesting event – the Rob Walker Centenary Exhibition and Parade, which will open on 20th October 2018. The Rob Walker Racing Team was based in Pippbrook, Dorking for almost 20 years until1971. The exhibition will focus on the team’s ‘Golden Decade – 1958-1968’. This was the most successful privateer team ever in Formula One, scoring nine Grand Prix victories and securing many places, with Stirling Moss its most success- ful driver. Apart from the exhibition, which will run for three months, it is hoped that there will be a parade of six or seven former team F1 and GT cars running through Dorking High Street on the opening day. One of the confirmed entries is the Ferrari 250SWB seen here in a photo taken at Brands Hatch in 1961 as the legendary mechanic Alf Francis read The Daily Telegraph. More details will follow later in the year – including an article on a fabulous collection of 151


/43rd scale models


of the team’s cars recently acquired at a local auction.


Finally, just to remind everyone, the Members’ Bar is only open on Thursday, Friday and Sunday lunchtimes and for selected BTM/Museum events. It is not open to members during private events, unless by invitation.
