London to Brighton Veteran Car Run set to have biggest turnout in five years

Staff writer

The London to Brighton run is the premier annual event for owners of pre-1905 cars. Run by the Royal Automobile Club, it sees flocks of ancient vehicles picking up their petticoats for a voyage from Hyde Park to Madeira Drive in Brighton.

This year's event is set to be heavily attended, with more than 450 attendees confirmed. That's the biggest turnout for five years, and entrants come from as far afield as Argentina, Norway and Hong Kong.
