The Brooklands Double Twelve

The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival is back this year on the 13th and 14th June, which is the weekend closest to the anniversary of the original date of the opening of the Brooklands Race Track - 17th June 1907. Once again, it will be one of the biggest motoring competitions held at Brooklands since 1939 and is being organised in association with the Vintage Sports-Car Club .

The new structure of the competitions was changed in 2013 to encourage entrants to enjoy a full weekend of motoring competition and give them greater flexibility to choose from the three stand-alone competitions and this will again be the format for 2015. The competitions will be:

The Double Twelve Speed Trials on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit on Saturday 13th June
The Double Twelve Concours held on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th June
The Double Twelve Driving Tests on Sunday 14th June

Each event will have its own class and overall winners, but to achieve a Brooklands Double Twelve award, an entrant must compete in any two of the three events and the combined scores of these two events will decide their Double Twelve placing. 

This means that a car may enter the Speed Trials on the Saturday and then the Driving Tests on the Sunday.  Alternatively a car can be entered for the Concours on the Saturday and take part in the Driving Tests on the Sunday and a car could also be entered for the Speed Trials on Saturday and be judged in the Concours on Sunday. It will not be possible to enter all three events due to timing restrictions and priority will be given to people entering more than one event.

As well as the main competitions, the Test Hill Challenge will also take place on both days. This will involve everything from bicycles and motorcycles to giant pre-war racing cars and running races for energetic children up the punishing 352ft (107m) concrete slope.

With family entertainment once again planned throughout the site and lots more attractions to be announced, this is a weekend for everyone!
