Richmond and Twickenham Times: We love: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang We love: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

A car which starred in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will be one of the vehicles showcased at the classic vehicle event on News Year’s Day.

Brooklands Museum, in Weybridge will host this event, which is set to be the biggest classic vehicle event in the country on January 1.

Doors will open at 9am to welcome spectators eager to see what treasures have turned up.

Museum director Allan Winn said: “One of the best things about the gathering is the breadth and range of vehicles that join us. You can see Austins and Fords alongside Bentleys, Rolls-Royces and Ferraris, Routemaster buses, classic Minis and Porsches.”

The museum hopes for an even greater turn out then last year, with nearly 5,000 visitors flooding in to look at more than 1,100 classic vehicles.

The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on display at the museum is seen in the opening sequence of the movie and has been rebuilt, clearly identifying it as the Disney classic.

All those arriving in pre-1973 vehicles should enter the museum site via the Campbell Gate off Brooklands Road. Parking for spectators’ cars will be in the Heights off Wellington Way.

The museum’s other displays will be open as usual.
