CAN YOU HELP? These are momentous times at Brooklands. The Finishing Straight


has been re-opened, the ‘Aircraft Factory’ is nearing completion and, just as we were going to press, the recreated Scoreboard was to be officially opened. These are all projects managed by the Museum, but their funding comes in no small part from you – the Brooklands Trust Members – so congratulations. Indeed the Scoreboard has almost entirely been paid for by members’ contributions, under the indefatigable leadership of Robert Hall.


And the BTM’s contribution to Brooklands does not end there. As well as all the talks, driving events and Outreach activities it undertakes, it is now the organiser of a major classic car show – as you can read in this Bulletin on page 15.
