Facelift for Brooklands, birthplace of UK motor racing

Brooklands in Surrey, the birthplace of British motor racing, is to get a multimillion-pound facelift to help restore it to its former glory, the BBC has learned.

The money will help bring part of its famous track back to life and rebuild its main hangar, which houses old aircraft including Wellington bombers, Sopwiths and Hurricanes.

It is the biggest heritage project that Brooklands has ever seen.

Duncan Kennedy went to have a look at the old track with museum director Allan Winn.
