Dunlop Mac’s Tyre Depot

Dating from 1921, this is the earliest of the sheds in the motoring village.

Dunlop Mac’s Tyre Depot was the Brooklands headquarters of the Dunlop Tyre Company’s racing manager, Norman Freeman. The Track was used extensively for testing tyres, as it was a unique venue in this country where cars could be driven unhindered and at top speed for as long as necessary. It was tyre-fitter David McDonald who supervised tyre changes at race meetings and was best known among the Brooklands racing community - his name has therefore always been associated with the building which became known as ‘Dunlop Mac’s’.
