    Auto Italia - Brooklands, Sat. May 4th 2013

    I thought that I should notify you all of this event.

    Italian Car Day

    Who is thinking of attending this year?
    Favourite quote by Marvin:
    "Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they tell me to take you up to the bridge. Call that job satisfaction? 'Cause I don't.
    And then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left side."

    Favourite quote by Ford:
    "Amazing looking ship though. Looks like a fish... moves like a fish... steers like a cow."

    i went years ago. Do they still let you take your car out for a good thrash on a flat open part of the track?

    Remember seeing Coupe 20vTs giving it large plus allsorts of other italian premium stuff.

    That looks like the Mercedes demo track.

    100% don't let people race on the Brooklands track, only about 200m of it left.

    You mean Mercedes Benz world? Not actually Brooklands then

    Yes I know they opened that up. The first year they opened it I took my GT round but I thought they stopped it after that. My mistake.

    That looks like the most pointless track driving ever?

    Yep, would be good to say 'Hi' this time, rather than nicking ideas on what to do with your conversion when the bonnet is open

    My mistake, yes, the Brooklands track is never opened up, would imagine it would be a complete H&S nightmare
