Brooklands in money raising mood

BROOKLANDS, the spiritual home of motoring racing, is having a bit of a whip around to raise funds.  Called Banking on Brooklands the scheme is to digitally divide up the famous members’ banking into 33 strips, giving a total of 2,000 virtual squares.  Priced at £95 upwards they are named after some of the greats of motor racing including John Cobb, Sir Malcolm Campbell and Kay Petre who managed in 1935 to get around the banked circuit at 135 mph in a narrow tyred Delage.  Brooklands is a fantastic place to visit, the home of Vickers Aircraft, with aeroplanes galore including Concorde, an amazing gathering of road and racing cars, and a terrific bicycle collection as well.  Just off the M25, the plan is to add 25% more visitors this year from the 110,000 in 2009.  The website is unusual and worth looking at. www.bankingonbrooklands.co.uk
