First visit for me. Very impressive turnout and well organised. Arrived about 10 and no queues in or out.

The cold damp weather cut through to the Bone even though I was wrapped up!
Bargain food prices at the trade stalls (as usual) £6.50 for a meat pie!!!!! OK it tasted nice but but that really is taking the pist.

Still it is what it is frown

Great turn out,some very fine machinery on display. It was nice just to get out of the House for the day and catch up with friends.

I did not take many pics but here's a couple....































Sorry but I don't really do European Cars, I prefer American.

Speaking to the guys at Brooklands today, they had just shy of 7000 people through the doors.
Cars down a long way on previous years, but it didn’t seem at all sparse.



Took this today when it was nice and quite

Always a mass of cars & people & always a joy - if you like crowds.
Arrived very early & by late morning it became just a bit too crowded for me.
All was so much more civilised when the classic movement was emerging & our country not overpopulated.

It was definitely quieter this year than last year which surprised me given the reasonable weather.

Still enjoyed.

Seemed better organised each year but two things I wish that they would look at.

1) the annoying Jazz player. Far too loud. why is music needed ?
2) I think they should review how cars park on the banking. Why not at 45 degrees rather than straight up / down?
