The Autumn Motorsport Festival with its associated classic car displays will return to the Brooklands Museum on Sunday 8thOctober 2017. The annual event is a chance to round off the season with the dramatic sight of competition cars from all eras in action on the Mercedes-Benz World test track, adjacent to the Brooklands Museum, with selected cars running up the demanding Brooklands Test Hill.
