    This Riley with chassis number 8070 was built in 1930 and shipped to America to promote the Riley Nine - to drive from New York to Los Angeles, stopping only for fuel and rest breaks. The Pemberton-Billing / Rupert Riley team managed this trip.

    On July 6, 1930, the team made their way to Los Angeles at 10:30 am.

    To accomplish the record they drove day and night. The average speed was 48mph (77km / h). The actual driving time was 102 hours and 4,200 miles (6,759 kilometers). The team needed exactly 5 days, 20 hours and 13 minutes for this trip. A detailed report on this trip can be found in the book, Sporting Rileys - The Forgotten Champions by David G. Styles.

    In 1936 owned by George H. Parris of Santa Anna, California.

    In 1941 a picture of a Riley Brooklands was published in the Riley Record magazine: the car being a much darker colour and has a registration 3W84 40. After this record run, the vehicle stayed in America and was converted into a racing car with a V8 engine.

    In the 1940s, the vehicle was then used in races in America.

    In 1978 this Brooklands, Chassis No. 8070 was sold to the Netherlands. At the end of the 80s, 8070 was sold to Germany. The owner used the vehicle at numerous racing events, including the Avd Oldtimer Grand Prix on the Nürburgring. At this point in time the V8 engine was still installed.

    In 1992 Barrie Gillies in England installed an original Riley Brooklands engine with 1100 cc (72PS).The vehicle was last used in a race in 1993 at the Klaussen race in Switzerland.

    8070 was then kept in Germany and formed part of a classic car collection for the next 30 years.

    The vehicle was last used in a race in 1993 during the Klaussen race in Switzerland.
