What's on Wheels
The Wheels Zone is unique to the event providing a heady mix of nostalgic, adrenaline pumping motoring demonstrations, arena displays, static exhibitions and a motoring paddock, open to the public, in a celebration of all things automotive.
The demonstrations, managed by Brooklands Museum, embody the "Spirit of Brooklands" – powerful, fast, pre-1939 vehicles, and more modern supercars and bikes. Always hugely popular with visitors and participants the Motoring Demonstration has been divided into a number of categories to ensure a diverse range of displaying vehicles. Some of the amazing cars that we had for 2016 are below in no particular order. The 2017 line-up will be confirmed in July 2017.
