First off, my apologies for this not being an especially car related topic although, in my defence, it is about Brooklands, the oldest motor racing circuit in the world. For extra relevance (maybe a tad spurious, I will admit;)) it is right next door to the renowned MB World.:D
An interesting sale coming up this Saturday at Brooklands with a number of interesting MBs with what seem to be particularly low estimates ........
Page 4 is particularly interesting but lots of others to look at.:-

Would you buy a C63 estate with LSD , owned by Mercedes World for just over 1 year from new then a doctor, traded in at Ferrari Egham, 63 plate
I presuming it was a driving day car with the LSD fitted, how much stick do these cars get, has anyone ever been?
Hi guys - today I completed the free AMG Drivers Academy Basic training that all new AMGs get as part of the car purchase.
The event was at Brooklands - its about 3 hours in total - maybe an hour of talking and 2 hours in the cars. It uses the handling circuits, wet circle, wet road etc that...
As well as being an SLK owner I am the Organiser of a Charity Motoring Organisation called Club Le Mons and this year, we are organising the first ever Roundel Run, a car and bike run which is an integral part of the Biggin Hill Festival of Flight (in Kent), commemorating the 75th...
Just a heads up folks. The one at MB World today is not an Edition 1 as hoped, it's a normal GT S finished in the designo iridium silver magno(matt) with a grey/black leather interior.
Also to say it is only here for today, it returns back to Germany afterwards. There is hope that MB World will...
Not sure what's happened here but there's a ton of Police at Brooklands today.
No-one there is saying much but it looks as though they've been ram raided overnight.
Quite a job to pull off in MBW, as anyone who's visited will know. I would imagine security there is generally pretty good.
What do you guys reckon?
Battery on the CLK is getting on for five years old now I reckon. It's very seldom used these days and has gone flat a couple of times from general lack of use (ie a few weeks at a time)
Checked for current drain and all seems okay - around 0.03A after an hour plus...
Hi all I just returned from brooklands. Had a great time there. It is as I was told a large car showroom, had an hour on the track in the new E63 biturbo... firstly the looks just did not do it for me, mainly the front end, somethings not quite right also the car looks very boxy and slab sided...
Wasn’t able to go but two that especially caught my eye was the 500SL that went for just £2,688 and the S600 for just £728!!!
Now that is a lot of car for banger money!!!
Did anybody go to the Auction yesterday at Brooklands.
We went and there were quite a few Mercedes amongst plenty
Was surprised to see a 1985 Mercedes 500 SL only went for £2,400
which seemed to be a bit of a bargain.
