The British Grand Prix: Where it all began

Step inside the workshop Robin Jackson, one of motor racing’s leading engineers in the 1930s. In here we tell the story of first British Grand Prix races, held here at Brooklands in 1926 and 1927.

The development of Grand Prix racing in Britain is represented in displays of historic cars, photographs, costume and memorabilia from the 1920s and '30s up to the present day.

Have a go at driving the Brooklands track in our F1 Simulator, explore Robin Jackson's drawing office and see some of the cars that raced in the first British Grand Prix.

Due to COVID safety measures, the F1 Simulator is current closed.
