2019 London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

The London to Brighton celebrates the repeal of the legislation that required motor powered vehicles to have a man walk in front of the car waving a red flag to warn other road users of its approach. The 2019 run took place on 3rd November.

Cars taking part have to be over a hundred years old. The event happens every year, early in November with cars setting off from London at dawn.
