Brooklands Race Track in 1925 is a 2.75-mile (4.43 km) motor racing circuit and aerodrome built near Weybridge in Surrey, England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1907 and was the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit as well as one of Britain's first airfields, which also became Britain's largest aircraft manufacturing centre by 1918.[1]

Henry Talbot and Charles Rogers are entered in the race, while most of the Crawley family, Bertie Pelham and Laura Edmunds are spectators. Charlie Rogers is killed in an accident during the race.
