I drive past Mercedes-Benz World every day on the way to work. I've never ventured inside, but the rotating three-pointed star on the roof gives it an irredeemably naff quality, in contrast to the adjacent Brooklands Museum area.

However, the chance to see "Formula 1™" cars might persuade me to make the trip...

It's happening at Brooklands, I would think that covers the nostalgia part quite well...

At least one of those has a certain degree of nostalgia, besides in 10 - 20 years from now there might just be a photo needed of Young Button or Hamiliton for some reason.

The Benz World does have a nostalgia element as classic road cars owned by Mercedes club members are on display and racing cars from HQ are rotated and mixed in among the modern road cars. (its huge)

Pop in its free, has a coffee shop and loo, so something for everyone.
