This is an event not to be missed!
Brooklands was the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed at Weybridge, Surrey in 1907 and was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century. The Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalleled collection of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and the only Concorde with public access in South East England.

>We have received information about this event and thought it may be of interest for our friends in Devon and Cornwall
I have spoken to the organisers and they are suggesting that Saturday 15th October will be the preferred day for car clubs. Whilst they are majoring on pre-1972 cars they seemed keen to see future classic cars like the Crossfire!
This is not currently a Club event but may be considered in the future.
Following feedback from the recent survey we will be holding both National and Regional events.
The National events will be totally organised by the club with Regional events being hosted by local members who have kindly offered their services to help organise.
As always this information may be subject to change but we believe that this is unlikely. Of course, we will be sending out further information closer to the event dates but please make a note in your diaries of these dates.
With the Chrysler Crossfire going out of production the question of the availability of spare parts was bound to come into question. Indeed, body panels, trim, interior parts and mechanical components were never easily obtainable from dealers when the cars were still in the showroom. We now hear of instances where Crossfires are being written off due parts shortages and the exorbitant cost of any items having to be obtained abroad. As the Chrysler Dealerships lost interest in the car, stocks of new spares has dwindled; over the last few years much has been disposed of through eBay etc; some bargains were found for anyone wanting to store parts for possible future use.
