The famous Brooklands Test Hill was built in 1909 as another facility to encourage use of the track for development and test work. It is 352 feet long and divided into three sections, starting with a gradient of 1 in 8, then 1 in 5 and the top third has a gradient of 1 in 4. It was used by manufacturers to test both the ability of cars to climb steep hills and also of their brakes to stop them coming down.
The AMHT are delighted that the Test Hill will be open for pre-war Aston Martins and this will make a fabulous spectacle for visitors.
To cover the costs of marshalling the hill we need to make a small charge of £25. Tickets to drive up the Test Hill are available from our Tickets page.
