The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival

  • Date June 16, 2018 - June 17, 2018
  • Time 10:00a.m. - 5:00p.m.
  • Suitable for Everyone

Organised in association with the Vintage Sports-Car Club, the event celebrates Brooklands’ rich motoring history, and is always held on the weekend closest to the Anniversary of the original opening of the Brooklands race track in 1907. The two-day extravaganza features Speed Trials, Driving Tests, the prestigious Double Twelve Concours and Test Hill ascents, alongside family-friendly entertainment and activities.

The structure of the competitions allows entrants to enjoy a full weekend of motoring competition and the flexibility to choose from the three stand-alone competitions:

  • The Double Twelve Speed Trials on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit (Sat 16 June)
  • The Double Twelve Concours (16 and 17 June)
  • The Double Twelve Driving Tests (Sun 17 June)

Each event will have its own class and overall winners but, to achieve a Brooklands Double Twelve award, an entrant must compete in any two of the three events with the combined scores of these two deciding their Double Twelve placing.

As well as the main competitions, the Test Hill Challenge will also take place on Sunday 17th June. This will involve everything from motorcycles to giant pre-war racing cars tackling the punishing 352ft (107m) slope, with running races for energetic children.

With family entertainment once again planned throughout the site and lots more attractions to be announced, this is a weekend for everyone!
