Today was MG Era Day at Brooklands Museum. Went along with a few other MGB owners from the local area. It was much warmer day than last time we went. Unfortunately this meant it was busy and hence I didn’t manage to get on the cavalcade around the Mercedes World track. Some photos from the day can be found below. Off to the garage tomorrow for the annual service.
More photos are available on Barry Welch Photography.
What a great way to start the year, the Brooklands New Year Gathering 2015!
My first time visiting this event at the world’s first purpose built motor racing circuit located in Weybridge, Surrey. It was built in 1907 and there is still a short section of the banked track as well as a museum covering both the motor racing history of Brooklands and the role it played in British aviation.
I went there and back with the roof down even though it was really chilly! On the way back I remembered to open the bottom vents, which I’d closed in the summer. With the heater running it was reasonably warm even given how cold it was outside the car!
I’ve put a few photos from the day below. I will definitely be planning to go again next year, but trying to get there earlier as by 11am there were lots of cars and I ended up in a grassy field from which I thought I might not be able to get out.

Last weekend I took the MGB to St Christopher’s Classic Car Show. This local car show has now been held twice and it is run by and in support of St Christopher’s Hospice.
Over 300 cars turned out for the show and the weather held off, even if it did get a little chilly at times.
