New pace car for haunted Brooklands?

For those who like to indulge in juicy stories about Brooklands Race Track being haunted by the ghost of poor old Percy Lambert (I do), here’s a nice tidbit: the Ghostbusters Cadillac is coming up for auction.

Apparently the place is still getting its share of visitors hoping for sightings of Percy’s ghost with its half-severed head roaming the Railway Straight and Members’ Bridge. I’m sure the Brooklands Society doesn’t mind.

The car is a replica, of course. But then again, so is probably Percy’s ghost. Auction is coming Saturday at the Brooklands Historics. Bring a hundred thousand quid or so. I’ll be in Singapore, of course.
