Similar to my first flight as cabin crew, when I realised you don't have to feel like a pile of poo after an 11-hour sector.

British Fart to Florida, Nude to New York, Dunce to Denmark, Numpty to Newfoundland.  And Shitfaced Silly Sod to Sweden.

I always found a few deep breath’s from the (on board) emergency oxygen bottle sorted most thick heads!

Not sure what is going to happen this time…….

It’s only metal, it cannot win!

I've attended this 5 years in a row, 4 of which in a Lotus. And always loved it! I don't really see the need to party just because we put another calendar on the wall so never minded getting up REAL early to cross the channel in time to be there shortly after opening. 😎

In 2020 my Elan let me down on the way there, 2021 shall not be mentioned and looks like 2022 isn't an option for me either unfortunately. 😞

If you're thinking about going, just do it, it's quite the experience and a great atmosphere!

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I am a Brooklands member, the New Year's Day event is a pleasant morning out. 

Since I joined in 2008, the team have done amazing work to improve this historic and important site. It was Britain's first purpose built motor circuit. It deserves our support.

I am looking forward to the event, and judging by the brooklands website my J registration just scrapes me through as a classic.

Last time I visited there was a supercar park just to the left of the main building, the main difference being you'd need to use a different entrance to get there. Certainly nothing to stop you from attending. 😉

I'd think with a Lotus you'd not have much trouble getting onto the historic site, I never had problems while the similarly aged M3 in front of me was turned back without hesitation. The supercar park is usually filled with recent fast/expensive cars, probably to make the owners feel special. (I should add that is nice to stroll around there as well, always some rare types to be seen).

I have been there the last 3 years in the Esprit. Engine is out at the moment so I will go in my AZ-1.

The AZ-1 has been to Brooklands once before and drew so much attention I was diverted to park in front of the clubhouse where I was interviewed and videoed.
