Saturday, June 15, 2013
Following the success of the Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival in 2012, which saw over 5,500 people attend over the two day event, the Double Twelve will return in 2013 on the 15th - 16th 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.
This year the structure of the competitions is changing to encourage entrants to enjoy a full weekend of motoring competition; there will be three stand-alone events:
The Double Twelve Speed Trials on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit on Saturday 15th June
The Double Twelve Concours held on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June
The Double Twelve Driving Tests on Sunday 16th 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.
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.
