The annual Standard Triumph forum show was at Brooklands for 2014. What a place never been before, it would have been value for money even without the Triumphs. The Wellington bomber and Hurricane in one of the hangers were in a stage of being rebuilt so seeing all there insides was very interesting. I had not realised that 2nd world war planes still had large areas of their bodywork made from coated clothe.
On my way to see the banking I passed this car. An AC Ace built at Brooklands. That banking is very steep.
There was a good turnout of cars. Including a some of the less often seen oldies.
