It is with deep regret that the Royal Automobile Club has been forced to cancel the 2020 RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run (Sunday 1 November). Given that the Run has taken place without interruption since 1947, this decision has not been taken lightly.
We have been working tirelessly with the local authorities along the route to plan a Run which would be safe for the participants, staff and spectators. However, respecting the Government’s efforts to control the current rise in COVID-19 infections, this is no longer possible.
All participants and supporters are now looking forward to celebrating the 125th Anniversary in style next year on 7 November 2021. In the meantime, we are delighted to be calling upon all owners of eligible pre-1905 cars to celebrate with the veteran car community worldwide in the RM Sotheby’s Virtual Veteran Car Run on Sunday 1 November 2020. More details are available here.
We would like to thank the Veteran Car Run Steering Group, partners and participants for their encouragement, commitment and support - and wish everyone a safe year ahead.
