BORGWARD AT BROOKLANDS – GERMAN CAR DAY 1st OCTOBER 2023

Ian Davidson

After attending a couple of local car shows in Farnham and Haslemere where the Brooklands Roadshow was in attendance, I was approached by a member of the committee to see if I’d be interested in displaying my Coupé at their “German Car Day” on 1st October this year. I agreed and along with only 2 other cars (Mercedes & VW) the Coupé was displayed in the prestigious Paddock in front of the Clubhouse and Clock Tower.

There was a constant stream of interest in the coupé, the vast majority of the other cars there were modern £100K plus Porsches.

When I attend shows the questions and comments I receive are all very similar, this one being no different.

What is it? Never seen one before.
Borgward never heard of it.
Is it a Wartburg?
Was it made in Czechoslovakia.
Is it 2 stroke?
Is it a Karman Ghia?
Where was it made?
Is it American?
Love the smell of the leather (mine is vinyl as original)
Art deco dashboard.

I didn’t attempt the Hill Climb as I didn’t want to show up the Porsches.

Lain Bell was also at the event in his combi.

A great day out raising the Borgward flag as I have done for the last 23 years!!
