The Brooklands Double Twelve
Following the success of the Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival in 2013 which saw over 5,000 people attend over the two day event, the Double Twelve will return in 2014 on the 14th - 15th June. Once again, expected to be the biggest motoring competition held at Brooklands since 1939, it is being organised in association with the Vintage Sports-Car Club and held on the weekend closest to the Anniversary of its original opening date of 17th June 1907.
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. This will be the format in 2014 with the three stand-alone events:
The Double Twelve Speed Trials on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit on Saturday 14th June
The Double Twelve Concours held on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th June
The Double Twelve Driving Tests on Sunday 15th 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.
Entry fees are as follows:
Speed Trials £100
Driving Tests £50
When two events are entered, the fees are:
Speed Trials and one other event £110
Concours and Driving Tests £60
(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 Saturday. This will involve everything from Sinclair C5s, bicycles and motorcycles to giant pre-war racing cars and running races for energetic children up the punishing 352ft (107m) concrete slope. Some vehicles may even head down the Hill in a test of their brakes.
With family entertainment once again planned throughout the site and lots more attractions to be announced, this is a weekend for everyone!
