London to Brighton Veteran Car Run
The world’s longest running motoring event commemorates the Emancipation Run of November 1896 which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotive on the Highway Act. It was this milestone legislation that raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ from 4mph to 14mph and came after the equally antiquated requirement for a man to walk in front of all moving vehicles waving a red flag had also been abolished.
Now, more than 120 years after that very first Run, hundreds of extraordinary pre-1905 vehicles made the historic 60-mile journey from Hyde Park in central London to the seafront in Brighton.
