Brooklands race track has had its remains captured by an amateur photographer using a drone, with some great results.

The race track, known as the ‘Ascot of Motorsport’ in its heyday, ran all the way around an area which is now home to Dakota, our ready to let office development. Although the race track has been out of use for some time, parts of the track still remain and have been captured by amateur videographer and longtime Brooklands fan Andy Lambert.

In June this year, following detailed negotiation with Brooklands Museum, Tesco, JTI, Marks & Spencer and Mercedes-Benz World, Mr Lambert flew a drone over the race track.

The circuit, originally constructed in 1907, was 2 3/4 miles long and 100ft wide with two long straights joined by two sections of banked curve up to 30ft high.

Mr Lambert tracked the original circuit and filmed the surviving sections, each in various states of repair.
