It is now six years since Mercedes-Benz launched the well visited Mercedes-Benz World near Weybridge in Surrey, UK. Located on the site of the world’s first purpose built motorsport venue, the famous Brooklands banked race circuit near London which opened in 1907.

Both the car company and location are synonymous with the birth of motoring. Acting as a showcase for what Mercedes is today and the heritage it comes from, the brand centre is well attended by marque owners and enthusiasts alike. A free to enter museum is accompanied by a cafe, restaurant, car dealership, service centre and mini-test circuit. The latter featuring A-road simulation with straights and corners, a skid pan and brake test area.
