7 August marks the anniversary of the first ever Grand Prix to be held in Britain. The race was held at Brooklands, near Weymouth, Surrey, in 1926, although the circuit had been opened in 1907, the brainchild of Hugh Locke-King. It was the first purpose-built banked motor race circuit in the world.
The site ceased to be used for motor racing at the outbreak of World War II.
