The annual Brooklands driving tests brought a good collection of Vintage Sports Car Club cars to the old circuit last weekend.

A cycle car (GN?) taking part in a fiendish test. The driver needs to drive at a constant distance around the Christmas tree (to which he attached by a line). On the line is a rubber duck. Get too close and the duck touches the ground and you are penalised. Drive too far from the tree and you will pull it over. This driver did the latter! Note terrified bear tucked behind nearside headlamp.

This gorgeous Grand Prix Vauxhall TT racer was on display in the old balloon shed. A reminder of days before Vauxhall became a mere franchise for GM rep mobiles.
