We met up with fellow smart enthusiasts in August 2001 at Brooklands. We had only just returned from Germany after buying our car there. The event was hosted by the UK smartcar club and was a grand day out.
Brooklands, the world's first purpose-built motor-racing circuit, opened in 1907. Its banked curves, distinctive green-domed Clubhouse and changing rooms for competitors were state-of-the-art. In its golden age, the 1920s and 1930s, Napier, Delage, Panhard, Bentley and Bugatti ruled the track.
