Council awards Brooklands Museum £225,000

With the new Formula One season set to roar into action, Surrey County Council has announced that Brooklands Museum has been awarded £225,000 to help restore part of the world’s first purpose-built motor racing track to its former glory.

The money will go towards returning the finishing straight to how it looked in 1939 when the circuit was in its heyday and supporting the expansion of the team in charge of educational visits.

Surrey confirmed the funding as part of its efforts to promote economic growth after Brooklands set out plans to boost annual visitor numbers by 25% to 215,000.

Australian city Melbourne hosts the opening grand prix of the 2015 season on Sunday.
