Brooklands reverberates to the sound of big block V8s.
The historic Brooklands Museum in Surrey hosted its annual American Car Day on August 9th. As with most events focused on cars from the other side of the pond, Mustangs and Corvettes dominated the displays, but there were a number of interesting custom cars and three of the latest Dodge Challenger Hellcats with their monster supercharged V8s.
The gallery below has a selection of cars from the day.
