We’re very lucky here in Islington. If you’re into your cars, that is, anyway. We are conveniently located close to a number of superb motor shows throughout the year. It’s not always easy to find out information about some of the less well-known events, though, so French and German Car Services Limited are on hand to give you some invaluable tips. Here, we take a look at the next big event near Islington this year: the Brooklands Double Twelve Motorsport Festival.
Vintage, vintage, vintage; this show is not one to miss if you’re into your vintage cars. The two-day motorsport festival features a number of events such as speed trials and hill climbs, and offers a fun, family day out. There is also a range of other entertainment available, if you can bear to tear yourself away from the Mustangs and the Bentleys.
This year, the event will be held on June 17th and 18th, making it a great option for father’s day. The event is always held on the weekend closest to the opening of the Brooklands race track in 1970, and is attended by a great number of people every year.
The motorsport festival is held every year at Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, Surrey. Located just an hour away from Islington, the museum’s picturesque location makes it a great location for such a popular show. From Islington, take the A40 out of London before heading south on the M25; the museum is just seven minutes from the motorway.
The easiest way to book is probably online, which you can do via Brooklands Museum’s official website. Bring your own vintage car along, too, as it’ll mean you can park on site! The sight of hundreds of vintage cars all heading into Weybridge is reason enough to head over, irrespective of whether you plan to attend the festival or not.
