The 100mph Ghost

Percy Lambert promised to quit motor racing once he won back the land speed record, but on Halloween 1913 his car flipped and he was killed. His death - alongside the many other racing fatalities - makes the famous Brooklands track an eerie place. Author Mark Richardson even wrote a light-hearted novel about the circuit's creepy reputation - The Ghost at Brooklands Museum.  But then a strange encounter on the tarmac left Mark wondering if he too had met Percy's unhappy spirit on the anniversary of the racer's death.
