LONDON TO BRIGHTON CAR RUN

I have been covering the departure for GE Classics classic and modern car run for a number of years now, the departure for 2021 was from the historic Brooklands motor museum, good to return as it has been a long time since I was last here...

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.

The GE Classic 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 summer 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!

The photography is to capture the participants arriving and enjoying the surroundings of Brooklands museum over a coffee and brake fats, then every car gets photographed as they depart under the nose of Concorde, a nice memento to have from the day.
