Thinking about it , I made both my E and my Frog keyless ..... yes they have master/ red keys switched main power . But any master key fits any master key , nope both cars are turned on with doombs day switch and push button ....... and all the car manufacturers thought they invented keyless 1st :lol:

Yes, weather permitting, we'll be there with our 3.8 OTS.

Well that was busy! :shock:

Sarah Cox announced it on Radio 2 apparently according to one of the guys who worked at Brooklands, good for them but not for the poor classic car owners with one eye fixed on their temperature gauge! :bigrin:

I managed to get there early (just after 9am) and, as a Brooklands Member bringing a pre '89 car, we could come in via the Mercedes Benz World entrance which was quieter. I was then directed to quite a good position in front of the old Pits rather than up on the banking. Within an hour, there was a double width queue of traffic coming down from the normal the Campbell hill entrance. One of our Surrey JEC members spent an hour queuing down the road from Weybridge station. I got the feeling as the day went on that Brooklands were somewhat overwhelmed by the numbers. The combination of good weather and dry unsalted roads.

Excellent turn out....good to see it so popular...I had to queue for 10 mins at 08.45, but no big deal....happy for Brooklands to be able to reap the success
Seem to recall 1500 cars was busy 2 years ago so that might mean more than 2,000 today..!

Not me! I unfortunately was in the modern as my other cars are in storage whilst I move in the next few weeks. But I did see a few having trouble.
