    In the early 2000s, I had the opportunity to visit Brooklands. I had business in Waltham, just a few miles from there. On my first (of three) visits over time, I actually walked on that exact piece of the track. I have no problem admitting that the experience overwhelmed me, and I shed a few tears as I walked the concrete.
