Brooklands racing circuit and aerodrome in 1945

Brooklands was a 2.75-mile (4.43 km) motor racing circuit and aerodrome built near Weybridge in Surrey, England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1907, and was the world’s first purpose-built motorsport venue,[1] as well as one of Britain’s first airfields, which also became Britain’s largest aircraft manufacturing centre by 1918. The circuit hosted its last race in 1939, and today part of it forms the Brooklands Museum, a major aviation and motoring museum, as well as a venue for vintage car, motorcycle and other transport-related events.
