Background[edit | edit source]
Brooklands was a 2.75-mile (4.43 km) motor racing circuit and aerodrome built near Weybridge in Surrey, England. It opened in 1907 and was the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit. It held motor races until 1939, when it was shut down and turned into Brooklands Aerodrome when WWII broke out. The race track was partially demolished for the aerodrome and now houses stand on the demolished parts.
