The World’s First Race Circuit Is Being Restored


The first purpose-built racing circuit, Brooklands in Surrey, UK is set to be rebuilt to its former glory. The current circuit has not been used since the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, and the legendary banking has deteriorated over time. But it was announced yesterday that lottery funding will be used to restore the track to the legendary status which it once held.


Part of the old circuit is currently being taken up by the Brooklands museum but the World War 2 Hangar is set to be moved and rebuilt, allowing for the track to form its original shape and of course to allow some racing on it!
