Brooklands for New Year’s Day

One of the biggest New Year’s Day turnouts of Classic vehicles in the country is likely to captivate spectators and participants at Brooklands Museum on 1 January. 

With over 1,000 vehicles and anything up to 5,000 people expected, there will be something for everybody amongst the classic and performance cars, historic commercial vehicles and motorbikes lined up on the historic concrete (and every other available bit of space) of the birthplace of British aviation and motorsport.

Already pre-booked are 20 car clubs representing makes as varied as Alvis, Bentley, Lancia, Lotus, Porsche and Rolls-Royce along with spectacular individual vehicles like one of the six cars used in the filming of the classic children’s movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Allan Winn, Museum Director, said: “For New Year’s Day we’ll have more indoor catering than ever, and attractions like Concorde and our new 4D theatre where people can try the exciting Napier-Railton Race Experience to keep people occupied whatever the weather.”

The Museum’s motoring displays and aircraft, together with the children’s’ Discovery Centre and soft play area, will be open as usual, so there will be something to entertain everyone.  The Sunbeam Café and a winter barbeque will be open for lunches and snacks.  www.brooklandsmuseum.com
