Brooklands New Year’s Day Gathering 2018

Allegro VW Beetle At Brooklands New Year's Day 2018

Brooklands New Years Day Gathering Topped 1100 Cars
The New Year’s Day events are massively popular, a great excuse to get out of the house before the holiday is done and it’s back to work. Brooklands was the biggest yet with over 1100 classics. The weather even held out, the rain held back for most of the day.

The Slammed Allegro above is sitting atop a VW Beatle hence the high floor in the back!

Classics on display amongst the museum’s aeronautical inhabitants included American muscle, hot rods (including the slammed VW/Allegro above), as well as the British and European icons along with more than a few show stoppers. Some of the favorites for me were a Renault 5 Maxi Turbo and “The Fastest Jensen…  In The World” (Below). An 800bhp 8ltr CV8! and it’s heading to Bonneville.

Renault 5 Maxi Turbo, sounded as good as it looks too.

Stacks of Mini’s including this Midas,

This exceptionally well presented Mini has what looks a lot like a supercharger peeking…

Lovely BMW 3.0 CSL, the two-tone paint job really suits it. Very classy.

One of the attractions of the Brooklands events is some of the more unusual guests. For instance, you don’t get much more unusual than this Citroen CX25 DTR Turbo 2 Kitesurf, yes Kitesurf (All will become clear)…

Booklands is very popular with the American and Hot Rod fans, they have a dedicated event later in the year.

Another fantastic looking car, an unusual colour for an Alfa…

On the German theme…

and we’ll finish off with a section of the old track, it’s amazing steep, tricky to get to the top on foot let alone in four-wheeled combat!
