Brooklands' New Years Day breakfast meet is a good way for petrolheads to bring in the new year. This was a our second year, and there we hundreds of cars, a buzzy, friendly atmosphere, music and good breakfasts. The only thing that spoiled it was the terrible rain that set in. Still, it didn't stop enthusiasts bringing their rare and old machines out to play. From Blower Bentleys to 50's Hot Rods, classic Ferraris and all kinds of classic and cherished motors. Also, this year scrutineering was taking place at the meet for the 2012 London to Cape Town Rally. We didn't take many photographs because of the weather, but these two caught our eye:
The 1968 Porsche 912 of Alastair Caldwell & Hayden Burvill
The 1964 Volvo of Martin Aaldering & Josephina Freriks Aaldering
Good luck to everyone on the rally, and a happy new year to all of our readers. We hope 2012 is a great year for you.
