M&S and Tesco at Brooklands - Shameful neglect of motorsport heritage

The unique banked circuit at Brooklands was built in 1907 and is widely regarded as the birthplace of motorsport and aviation.

M&S and Tesco were allowed to build their ugly stores on the site. The banked circuit had to remain intact with the 'giants' undertaking to maintain this historic icon. They haven't!

It's a disgrace, left to weed over, untidy with rubbish strewn over it. They manage to keep their own car park well maintained, but have given up on a unique piece of national heritage.

Come on Tesco and M&S, do the right thing and get your maintenance team on the case.

Ugly wherever they are. Mega supermarkets are always nasty but some like sainsburys do at least a bit of maintenance.

They all do maintenance on their own lots, that's not the point.

True but the brook lands circuit is huge to be sure. Maintaining it means what? It was grown over years ago from what I remember. I'm all for kicking butt with these corporates. But this is a huge task.
