London to Brighton Classic Car Run
Jun 03rd All Day
The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run has been taking place every November since 1927 and commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14 November 1896 which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act, which raised the speed limit for 'light locomotives' from 4 mph to 14 mph and abolished the requirement for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot.
Our own London to Brighton Classic car run commenced in 1988 and gives owners of vintage and classic cars the chance to take part in their own run on a usually warmer day in June complete with a self guided scenic tour to Brighton which changes each year and attracts many regular participants.
In 2000 an additional run was launched to cater for modern sports cars, kit and replica vehicles, meaning that our London to Brighton runs are available to all motoring enthusiasts!
