Motor Racing at Brooklands 1920s

Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit in Weybridge, Surrey was constructed by wealthy landowner Hugh Locke King in 1907.

Brooklands became known as the ‘Ascot of Motorsport’ and was the place to be seen during the heyday of British Motor Racing in the 1920s and 1930s. Malcolm Campbell, John Cobb and others broke records in magnificent Napier, Delage, Mercedes, Bentley and Bugatti cars, until the outbreak of war in 1939 saw the end of racing on this legendary circuit.
