Brooklands Hill Climb
Brooklands Hill Climb
This hill was established in 1907 with the Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. It was used by motor manufacturers to test their latest models, and for the sport of motor hill climbing which took place here regularly between the world wars. It is still used for sporting events in current times - see TQ0762 : Members Day on the Brooklands Test Hill.
