DAYS OF THUNDER

For 32 action-packed years, from 1907-1939, Brooklands Motor Circuit was the undisputed focus of British motorsport.

Brooklands, the World’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, where the World’s Land Speed record was smashed no fewer than three times, a 100 miles was covered in one hour for the first time, the inaugural British Grand Prix was run, and whose slogan was ‘The Right Crowd and No Crowding’, attracted thousands of motor racing fans and casual spectators alike. Brooklands became as much a part of the English social scene as Ascot, Henley or Derby Day at Epsom.

At a time when the national speed limit was 20 mph, Brooklands’ spectacular bankings were scientifically designed to accommodate 120!

By the end of the story of Brooklands racing, John Cobb’s Outer Circuit lap record stood at a staggering 143.44 mph.

Awesome! Love it!
Real power in this one; fast and strong. Probably need to show it to people who want to depict motion- it's a case study! The colours and layout of visual elements are also really pleasing, and the effects applied across the whole work really bring it to life. All apologies if it's unaltered; just looks like sharpness etc was touched up- really, really well! :dance: :D
