Brooklands racing revived by J May

About Brooklands, James May attempts to build the biggest Scalextric track in the world, nearly three miles long, on the site of Britain's oldest grand prix track at Brooklands in Surrey!
The video also shows the driving track at Merc Brooklands.

if you are in the UK you can watch it here

I think it is available in the uk only... If you cant follow the link please go to the BBC iPlayer and look for "James May's Toy Stories". The Brooklnad episode is brilliant!

If you cant use iPlayer, try youtue, for example


This will give yuo a flavour of what JM did, but it is nto very good quality unfortunately... handheld camera

I hope you can view it
