The Brooklands Museum Trust
Brooklands is the birthplace of British motor sport and aviation and also the site of many engineering and technological achievements through eight decades of the 20th century.
The Brooklands Museum Trust is an independent charitable trust established in 1987, whose aim is to conserve, protect and interpret the unique heritage of the Brooklands site.
The Brooklands Trust Members are the official support group for the Museum and that support is invaluable in helping to realise the Trust's objectives and keep the Museum running, whilst also offering many benefits to the Members themselves, including free entry to the Museum.

TERRIFIC HUNT@40 EVENT
Journalist and commentator Simon Taylor hosted a great evening celebrating 40 years since James Hunt won the F1 World Championship in 1976. Joining him on stage were touring car dirver and journalist Tony Dron, journalist and author (whose latest book on James Hunt has just been published) Maurice Hamilton and James's son Freddie Hunt. The evening looked at James's career from his early days at Wellington College through to his days on the BBC commentary team with Murray Walker and of course his iconic F1 World Championship. From the audience one of James's mechanics at McLaren, Howard Moore, added his own personal recollections as did James's former March team boss Chris Marshall. The evening was interspersed with film clips of James in action and archive photographs plus memorabilia on display brought in by Members (including the original Hunt pit board sign)

BTM's LLANERCHINDDA TRIP SUCCESS
The BTM's motoring tour to the Llanerchindda Farmhouse in Llandovery was a great success. A variety of cars took part in the event including an E Type Jaguar and Alfa Romeo 4C along with a Morgan, MX5, MGB, Mini Convertible and more. The essence of this trip is the hospitality provided by Martin and his team at the Farmhouse who specifically cater for motoring groups such as ours. Two complete day runs are included in the weekend taking in some of the spectacular scenery to be found in the Brecon Beacons and surrounding areas followed by homely dinners in the evening and jugs of Pimms!. The great location of the Farmhouse overlooks a valley with a railway viaduct providing some spectacular views partiuclarly as sun sets.
