Classic Sports Car - - News & Events -

Over half a mil­lion vis­i­tors en­joyed the Re­gent Street Mo­tor Show on 3 Novem­ber, the eve of the Lon­don to Brighton Vet­eran Car Run, with ex­hibits rang­ing from Vic­to­rian to brand new. More than 100 Run par­tic­i­pants en­tered the Vet­eran Car Con­cours d’el­e­gance, which was won by Harold Pritchard’s 1903 De Dion-bou­ton W-type for the sec­ond time.

The Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle’s 80th was cel­e­brated in a dis­play with the real ‘Her­bie’ from Dis­ney’s The Love Bug, while the Jaguar Driv­ers’ Club marked the 70th an­niver­saries of the XK and MKV, and the XJ’S half-cen­tury. An­other sil­ver-screen car, a Back to the Fu­ture Delorean (above), was on hand to de­light the crowds. It was also time to bring out the bunting on the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic stand, with cars rep­re­sent­ing the British Rally and British Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onships, both of which hit 60 in 2018.
