Brooklands, July 1968

Meanwhile Hugh Evelyn Street (on the right) was busy doing the same thing 50 years ago at the world’s first purpose built race track for cars - Brooklands, near Weybridge in Surrey, England. Here he is at a Brooklands Society reunion on July 7th 1968 selling his racing cars - exactly the same prints we have here. He is ably assisted by John “Jack” Hobbs and Jack’s son Tony. The cars on the table are (from l to r) the 1955 BRM 16 cylinder, the 1951 Alfa Romeo Type 158-9 and the 1958 Vanwall.
