PRESS RELEASE 26/10/2015

DRESS TO IMPRESS ON THE ANNUAL BONHAMS LONDON TO BRIGHTON VETERAN CAR RUN!

Spectators and participants to reward those in the best period dress on Sunday's evocative Veteran Car Run by sharing on Twitter and Instagram

It’s not just the 400-plus historic cars from the dawn of motoring that hark back to Victorian and Edwardian times on the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, as many of the plucky participants also get into the nostalgic spirit of the annual event by dressing up in appropriate period costume.

There’s even a special Best Period Dress Award that this year, for the very first time, is open to a public vote. Both those taking part in this Sunday’s (1 November) traditional Run from Hyde Park to the Sussex coast and the thousands lining the 60-mile route whether in London, Crawley, Brighton, or out in the countryside are invited to post their favourite photographs on Twitter (https://twitter.com/VeteranCarRun) and Instagram (https://instagram.com/veterancarrun) using both the following two hashtags: #VCRdress2impress with #VCR.

The best of these will then be judged, with the winning VCR entrant receiving a trophy plus a bottle of Hattingley Valley English sparkling wine.

The full route information for those wanting to join the public online vote can be found on the official website at www.veterancarrun.com
