Let's start the year as we mean to go on, at a car show, and what better to choose than Brooklands Museum New Years Day meet. With a Facebook event boasting 5000 people interested and an expected attendance of 1000 cars, we were excited to get back into the swing of things after the winter show break.
With the knowledge it would be busy, we set off early getting to the show for 9:30, just after opening. It was already clear by this point that it was going to far exceed the expected turnout, cars were arriving constantly with some real gems amongst them.
There really was something for everyone, from race spec sports cars to lowered BMW's. It made a nice change from many shows that can look like a retro car park, with very little differentiation.
Over 1500 cars showed up over the course of the day, easily making it one of the largest (if not the largest) New Years Day classic car shows. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and will definitely put it in the diary for next year! Check the link below for our full photo coverage of the show.
