Summer Classic Gathering and AutoJumble 2022 Event Report

29 July 2022

Last Sunday Brooklands was abuzz as over 500 classic vehicles and 70 trade stands descended for its annual Summer Classic Gathering and AutoJumble. Over 2500 visitors enjoyed admiring the cars and motorbikes along the Finishing Straight and right through the Aircraft Park, as well as perusing through the fascinating items on sale in the trading village. Live music by the Clubhouse, traditional lawn games, some pop-up food stalls and glorious sunshine throughout the day made for a wonderfully happy atmosphere.
