Brooklands Hill Run

The Brooklands hill run thread is up - you don't really need a link do you - it's a pain to link using the phone!!

Anyway would be good to see a Panda going up. Anyone going to put their name down? I'll probably be sans Panda at this one just to give a 127 some exercise. How would a 750 Panda do on the hill???!!

Kev's Sisley is on video 3 years ago but I didn't see it in person. Again I'm not posting the link as I'm too lazy.....

Re: Brooklands Hill Run

I've done it twice...both are on YouTube by Jon. Two runs per car, the videos are from the inside and the outside. One in the Sisley and one in poppi the 1000cl.

A 750 will have no problem...there is a knack though, so whoever does it I can talk them through it.

Re: Brooklands Hill Run

Is Pinky going @VmanC ? That would be good publicity particularly if someone spoke to Messrs Ward to get an announcement done

Sometimes I surprise even myself!!!

Steepest hill in England is in the south... Porlock hill.

Re: Brooklands Hill Run

Most infamous hillclimb is South too - just a couple of hundred yards from me. Very steep but don't know how it compares to others.

We really MUST get some Panda's together for this year's Kop Hill event. And in case you didn't know an accident in 1925 led to the ban on racing on public roads in the UK.

Btw anyone wanting to go up Kop Hill just visit my Panda sanctuary and I'll show you where it is.

Re: Brooklands Hill Run

Is that it?

A little bump in the road?

When is it and how much does it cost? I may be able to get the Fantasia up there or even the £999 Challenger if it's ready in time.
