Brooklands tribute to Austin and Morris

Austin morris day

BROOKLANDS Museum stages a celebration of iconic British manufacturers Austin and Morris on Sunday March 9.

Now in its 21st year, this popular event is an opportunity for visitors to see some of the most iconic and best-loved vehicles ever to grace the roads of Britain.

The historic site at Brooklands will be put to full use as all types of Austin and Morris vehicles attempt to ascend the famous Test Hill, take part in a cavalcade on the Mercedes-Benz World track and gather 7 or 8 deep for a mass photo opportunity on the Members’ Banking.

The museum expects well over 100 vehicles to turn up to this spectacular day, which sees hordes of Austin and Morris cars and commercial vehicles congregating in and around the Paddock at the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation.

As well as clubs and individuals displaying pre-war cars, the Cambridge and Oxford, 1100 and Metro Clubs will also be in attendance.

Some of the cars expected to attend from these two stables include:

AUSTIN: Seven, Ten & other pre-war saloons; Austin A30/A35 saloons & vans; Austin A40; Austin A50/A55/A60 saloons & Light Commercials; Austin Healey; Austin Mini – all types, including Mini Cooper; Austin 1100; Austin Princess; Austin 101, LC/LD & other post-war Austin commercials.

MORRIS: Bullnose, Eight, Ten & other pre-war saloons; 10 Tourer; war-time Morris military vehicles; Morris Commercials – including pre-war examples; Morris Marina; Morris Mini; Morris Minor 1000 Convertibles/Light Commercial Vehicles/saloons/Travellers; Morris Isis & Oxford; Morris 1100; Morris ‘J’ Type, LC/LD & other post-war Morris commercials; Mini Mokes.

All drivers and passengers arriving in Austin or Morris vehicles at the Campbell Entrance off Brooklands Road (the B374) will receive a discount of £1 off the usual entry prices. Parking for visitors in non-Austin or Morris vehicles will be in our main visitor car park at Mercedes-Benz World and in The Heights off Wellington Way (please follow event signage), with normal Museum admission prices applying.

As on every event day at Brooklands, the Motoring Village, Aircraft Park, London Bus Museum, Sunbeam Café, soft play area and Museum Shop will all be open, making the usual admission price even better value for money.

And, for a small supplement, visitors can experience supersonic travel by booking a ticket for the excellent Concorde Experience: booking on arrival for this attraction is recommended as demand is always high.
