Brooklands' banked-turn up for sale

Brooklands, the legendary motor-racing circuit, has been put up for sale and will be broken up in to bits in the process.

But fans of the derelict track need not fear – it is all part of a scheme backed by TV presenters James May and Tiff Needell to raise money for Brooklands Museum in a bid to preserves its place in British motor racing history.

Square-yard sized chunks of the historic track are available for sponsorship, with the lower section of the bank priced at £95, mid-level chunks at £125 and the top tier coming in at £150. 1,980 will go on sale, aiming to raise over £200,000 for the museum.
