• British Grand Prix: Where it all began


    The British Grand Prix:

    Where it all began

Step inside the workshop of Robin Jackson, one of motor racing’s leading engineers in the 1930s. In this exhibition, we tell the story of the first British Grand Prix races, held here at Brooklands in 1926 and 1927.

The development of Grand Prix racing in Britain is represented in displays of historic cars, photographs, costumes and memorabilia from the 1920s and '30s up to the present day.

Have a go at driving the Brooklands track in our F1 Simulator, explore Robin Jackson's drawing office and see some of the cars that raced in the first British Grand Prix.
