Spectating throughout the Sunday Run from Hyde Park London to Madeira Drive Brighton and during the Saturday Regent Street Motor Show, London is completely FREE!
Apart from viewing the 500 plus Veteran vehicles from the road side along the 60 mile route to Brighton there are several options to further enjoy the Veteran Car Run:
Saturday 2 November 2013 - Regent Street Motor Show
From 10.30am till 4.00pm around 100 of the following days participating veteran vehicles will be on display with many of the drivers and passengers in period costume. During the display the veteran vehicles are judged for the best-in-class in their participating category.
You can get up close to the 100 plus year old cars and ask the owners your questions. Take photographs and see and hear them arriving and departing in the period setting of London's world famous Regent Street shopping location. The display area is in the heart of Regent Street between Piccadilly Circus and Conduit Street with this section of the road closed to regular transport during the presentation.

Many enthusiasts gather at various locations along the 60 mile route to support the drivers and passengers of these wonderful nostalgic vehicles.
The following are just some of the popular viewing locations:
All participating vehicles retain an average 20mph speed along the 60 mile route and will start to arrive at the formal finish in Preston Park Brighton after three hours from the first car starting. This is followed by a final section into Madeira Drive, Brighton for a 10.03am first arrival. Cars continue to arrive and remain on display in Madeira Drive until approximately 4.30pm.
Along the B roads between Crawley and Brighton many of the public houses on the route host various classic car club gatherings, providing additional interest, throughout the Veteran Car Run day.
