The Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival 2017
Location: Brooklands Museum, Brooklands Road, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 0QN,
One of the most loved events at Brooklands Museum, hosted each year to celebrate the anniversary of the opening of Brooklands Race Track, is returning; the Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival.
Three competitions take place over two days of incredible motorsport in one legendary location. Here’s what to expect at the Double Twelve Festival on 17-18 June 2017.
It wouldn’t be a celebration of classic motorsport without a few competitions taking place, and the Double Twelve sure delivers on that front.
On the Saturday, you’ll see the Double Twelve Speed Trials and the Double Twelve Concours. On Sunday, the Concours continues and the Double Twelve Driving Tests kick off.
The three competitions will feature a wide range of incredible cars, including, but not limited to:
- Veteran & Edwardian Cars
- “The Grand Tour” Pre-war touring cars from 1918-1939
- Historic Brooklands Vintage Sports Cars
- Post-war Short Wheelbase Sports Cars and Saloons
- 1950s Sports Cars
You can find a full list of classes taking part on the Brooklands Museum website.
Each of these events will have their own winners, but for many drivers, there is one accolade to aim for; the Brooklands Double Twelve award. If a car competes in two of the three events, their scores will be combined, and this score will decide where they rank on the Double Twelve award table.
As well as all this competition, bikes, pre-war and post-war cars will be tackling the 352ft Test Hill Challenge. So, there’s a lot to look forward to!
Fun for fans and families
Alongside all of this motorsport action for fans, there’s a great Family Activity area for the little ones. Well, we say for the little ones, but you may struggle to resist helping while they build a 3D papercraft model of the Brooklands Paddock and Clubhouse.
If you can resist the papercraft, there are plenty of trade stands and car clubs to enjoy all around the event.

Tickets are £11 for adults, £10 for seniors and students, £30 for families (two adults and three children) and £6 for children aged 5-16.
