Definitive history of the world’s first purpose built motor racing course. This edition was limited to 2000 copies of which this is number 691. The author first visited the famous Brooklands Motor Course as a youngster in the 1920s and quickly became a fixture at the track, which a wealthy landowner had built in 1907 and on which motor racing and motor industry testing was to take place through to 1939, when World War II brought it all to a halt. Much of the land was then given over to aviation, then to industrial development, but parts of the historic track still survive, along with many restored and refurbished buildings steeped in motor racing history. Today they form a backcloth to the many activities staged by motor clubs in the South East of England and to the newly created Brooklands Museum, which is devoted to both motorsports and aviation. The editor of the magazine Motor Sport” for more than half a century
