Lon­don to Brighton Vet­eran Car Run

5 Novem­ber

Countryfile Magazine - - Month In The Country -

On the first Sun­day of ev­ery Novem­ber, more than 400 pre-1905 ve­hi­cles take to the streets in Lon­don, jour­ney­ing 60 miles to Brighton in the long­est-run­ning motor­ing event in the world. The day com­mem­o­rates the 1896 Eman­ci­pa­tion Run, a cel­e­bra­tion of the pass­ing of the Lo­co­mo­tives on High­ways Act, which loos­ened rules on UK speed lim­its for ‘light lo­co­mo­tives’ from 4mph to 14mph.
