From modest beginnings in the late 1950s, running Formula Junior cars from the family woodshed, Ken Tyrrell’s team entered Formula One in 1968. Initially running the works Matra cars for Jackie Stewart, Tyrrell became a constructor in its own right from 1971. Drivers on its roster included Stewart, Jody Scheckter, Martin Brundle, Jean Alesi, Mika Salo and many more. Tyrrell won World Championships in 1969, 1971 and 1973 and the team continued under Ken Tyrrell's management until 1997. Tyrrell's legacy continues in Formula One today as the Mercedes F1 team, which is Tyrrell's descendant through various sales and rebrandings via BAR, Honda and Brawn GP.

Marking the publication of “The Story of the Tyrrell Racing Organisation” by Richard Jenkins, the Brooklands Talks Team is collaborating with the author and publishers to run this special event. Following the private launch of the new book earlier in the afternoon, at which Tyrrell cars will be present, past Tyrrell drivers and other motorsport personalities associated with the team will gather in the Napier room for a presentation and Q & A in the evening. Don't miss your chance to book your ticket for the Presentation and Q&A - this unique event will be sure to sell out quickly!

This event will be in person in the Clubhouse and broadcast on Livestream

The Members' Bar will be open from 6pm and hot food will be available.
