Does anyone amongst the knowledgeable readers on this forum have a collection of Brooklands programmes? In particular I am trying to find detail on a car and driver at the following meetings in order to identify film:

 

BARC Meeting 10/9/32

BARC Meeting 7/8/33

 

If anyone can help please PM me and I'll give the details of the car, driver and races.  Many thanks.

Another Brooklands programme request.  Does anyone have the programme for the 1931 August Bank Holiday meeting? I am trying to marry up car numbers to drivers and cars on a digitised cine film.

Digest the above and it tells us an awful lot about Great Depression-era Brooklands and its form of racing - and also of racing people - halfway between the end of the First World War and the outbreak of the Second.
