Spinning Wheels

Brooklands Members have a wide interest in classic cars, motorbikes and aeroplanes.

Spinning Wheels is a new series of short films about Members and their classic vehicles which will be filmed on an ongoing basis.

The idea will be to ask the owner to talk about their vehicle at Brooklands. You can see the pilot episode here which features BTM administrator Tim Morris and his MGF to give you some idea of what it is all about.

Would you like to take part?

Filming takes place usually on Wednesday mornings at Brooklands and will take a couple of hours. If you are a member and would like to take part then please contact Tim in the BTM office either by phone 01932 857381 ext 226 or email to [email protected] with some details about yourself and your vehicle.

We will also be in attendance at some Museum events filming short vox pops with owners and drivers of vehicles as part of a wider picture of the show itself. You can see those films in the bottom section of this page.

A look at some of the cars and drivers taking part in the 2018 "Reunion" Event. This event is aimed at pre-war cars and particularly those that actually raced at Brooklands.
