FRIDAY 23 OCTOBER 2015
Partners to the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run provide invaluable support to ensure the smooth running of the event. As we approach this year’s Run, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank our partners and share with you details of the value they bring.
Our title partner Bonhams extend a warm welcome to all participants to their auction on Friday 30 October. Some details of a selection of their consignments are outlined above and you just need to bring along a copy of their catalogue (which has been sent in the post to all participants) to gain entry. Bonhams also ensure you are welcomed at the finish with warming chilli and mulled wine.
EFG is once again supporting the display of the veteran car Concours d’Elegance on Regent Street on Saturday 31 October.
The Harrods Stop at Crawley will have an added dimension in 2015 with a butler service provided to all participants and a jazz band offering light entertainment while warming teas, coffees and pastries are served.
This halfway stop is kindly supported by Honda who clear the forecourt of their Crawley dealership to support the parking of veteran cars, plus Honda also provide facilities for two (Crawley & Redhill dealerships) assist points and a fleet of vehicles for event personnel.
The Hattingley Valley Participants Reception, supported by Hagerty, will be held on the eve of the Run at the Royal Automobile Club Pall Mall. Participants who have taken up the offer of tickets will be welcome at the Clubhouse to celebrate the Hattingley Valley and Hagerty awards which will be presented that evening.

In addition, Abels take care of the furniture removal at the Club to ensure there is sufficient space to support the Participants Reception, safely returning items to their previous location post event.
As our new Official Lubricants Partner, Total will be on hand to give advice and provide samples of their specialist range of oils for veteran and classic cars at the Harrods Stop at Crawley and further assistance in the paddock on Madeira Drive.
The welcome sight of the orange RAC Motoring Services patrols will adorn the route and be on standby for anyone who should suffer a breakdown on the way to Brighton. They will also be on hand at the Hyde Park paddock, Redhill Honda, the Harrods Stop at Crawley, Sparkes Farm and Preston Park (Brighton). There will also be a patrol at Madeira Drive, Brighton too.
We’re delighted to welcome entries this year from the heritage departments of our Manufacturer Patrons Renault and Vauxhall – two examples of very few present-day manufacturers who have eligible entries into the Run. These will be celebrated in their dedicated paddock areas on Madeira Drive so, if you drive one of these marques, you’ll be directed to the relevant area on Madeira Drive.
