Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run Supported by Hiscox

With its unique atmosphere and camaraderie, the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run supported by Hiscox commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14th November 1896, which celebrated the Locomotives on the Highway Act. The Act raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ from 4 to 14 mph and abolished the need for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot waving a red flag.

The Emancipation Run was first commemorated in 1897, with a re-enactment following the same route in 1927 and has taken place every November since, apart from the war years and 1947 when petrol was rationed. The Royal Automobile Club has been custodian of the Run, with the support of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain, since 1930.

The Run is open to entries from eligible pre-1905 cars and starts in Hyde Park at first light on the first Sunday in November, finishing on Madeira Drive in Brighton.
