Check your speed on Brighton run

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

FOR the first time in its 117year his­tory, the 2013 Lon­don to Brighton Vet­eran Car Run is to in­clude a com­pet­i­tive el­e­ment.

In pre­vi­ous years, the only aim for the hun­dreds of hardy driv­ers was to cover the 60 miles from Lon­don’s Hyde Park to Brighton’s Madeira Drive with­out suf­fer­ing a mishap. For most par­tic­i­pants, merely ar­riv­ing at Brighton is suf­fi­cient re­ward.

But this year, for the first time ever on the Run, a Reg­u­lar­ity Trial will be in­cluded. This de­mands that en­trants main­tain a spe­cific aver­age speed over the event, with penal­ties for ar­riv­ing at the fin­ish, or at one of the se­cret in­ter­me­di­ate time con­trol points, too early or too late. The 2013 Vet­eran Car Run, which takes places on Sun­day, Novem­ber 3, will at­tract as many as 500 au­to­mo­biles from the dawn of mo­tor­ing.

As the long­est-run­ning mo­tor­ing event in the world, 500,000 on­look­ers are ex­pected to turn out to en­joy the spec­ta­cle.
