Assuming I can get it fixed, Marek will be driving the Bugatti.  Will the write-up from the club website do for commentary - I know it's a bit long?

Bookings will shortly be open for the Brooklands Relived event featuring the Double Twelve on 17th/18th June

In the museum’s words - “Come and enjoy this two-day extravaganza, featuring the Double Twelve Competition events, Test Hill ascents, great food, music and entertainment for the whole family.

The event celebrates Brooklands’ rich motoring and motorsport history, and is always held on the weekend closest to the anniversary of the original opening of the racetrack on the 17th June 1907.
Get ready for a day of spectacular displays and competition as we welcome vehicles to compete in the Double Twelve Speed Trials. Head over to Mercedes-Benz World and watch as 19-classes of vehicles compete for the best result in these heralded timed-trials, and then later, peruse the paddocks at the Museum for some truly exceptional examples of motor-vehicles.
Both days will feature festival fun on the Museum site, with live music, car and motor club displays and family entertainment.”
Once again, we’ve been invited by Brooklands Museum to join this historic event.  This is the first year in this new format combining the Double Twelve and Relived.  Based on previous events we might expect a larger crowd on the Sunday.
On Saturday, as part of the Double Twelve Time Trials, we will have an opportunity to do a display lap or two of the Mercedes World Test Track at lunchtime.  We may also be invited to do some display laps on the start finish straight.

On Sunday, we will do exhibition laps of the start-finish straight with commentary, simulated race mass starts and have a chance to conquer Test Hill.

On both days we will have a display stand with our cyclekarts and we make an effort to look the part in period attire.

Whenever we’ve been to Brooklands, the crowd has loved the cyclekart displays and we always get a great reaction.  Plus, of course, there’s the chance to look around the fabulous collection of cars, bikes and planes at the museum.

You can do both days or just one and the cost is just £10 per cyclekart for the weekend!

Entry forms and event details will be available to members later this month, please email Chris at to register your interest and receive forms as soon as they are released.

Very impressive.  You’ll have everyone on the M6 guessing what’s inside.

Tech Forum / Checklist, tyre pressures and fuel lines

With the new season about to start don’t forget to go through your checklist and logbook notes.

My logbook reminded me that I’d noticed a cracking fuel hose last year (now fixed) and the tyre pressures I was last running…plus a bunch of improvements I intended to make…!

They're clear glass.   Jim printed a pattern to go behind the glass to make them look even more period correct.

I'll bring them along tomorrow.

I bought a pair of these lights but have decided they don't suit my needs.  They can be seen being beautifully modelled on Jim's BSA.

Brand new and unused.

Cost me £23.99 - happy to take £20

No news I’m afraid Jim.

But…tickets have been emailed  and there’ll be 8 Cyclekarts on display.

What ho!

Dug the sand out of the Bugatti, have done safety checks, oily rag over the rusty bits, grease and oil in appropriate places and now changing the fuel hoses - not sure the last ones were quite the spec promised!

Trailer checked over.

Probably going to be a static display but no harm being ready.
