• Nortons at Brooklands
The Surrey Branch of the NOC will be holding a Norton Day at Brooklands on June 8 at the old Brooklands Circuit near Weybridge in Surrey.
Planned events are a Norton Concours, a traditional jazz band playing all day, an adrenaline pumping opportunity in the afternoon to ride up the famous Test Hill as well as the chance to see their wonderful collection of period racing bikes, cars and classic aircraft. Last but not least is the unmissable chance to inhale the special ‘Spirit of Brooklands’ atmosphere.
Entrance to Brooklands is £10, gates open at 10am and there will be a NOC marquee after the site entrance. Register at the marquee before 12pm for the Test Hill or at www.nortonatbrooklands.co.uk
