Cycling

1907

In September 1907, a 100 mile massed start cycle race was held at the Brooklands Track. At this time, even cycle racing was not approved of on the open roads and the Track proved to be a safe haven for cyclists as it had for the motor car. This race was a precursor to the mass start cycle races that were frequently held at the race track during the 1930s.

1930s

In 1933, a 100 kilometre Championship Trial Road Race was held at Brooklands, promoted by the Charlotteville Cycling Club. The event was used to select a team for the World Championships at Montlhéry. The track continued as a regular venue for cycle races throughout the 1930s. In 1939 alone, 19 races were held between April and August.
