I have an eligible car. How do I enter the RM Sotheby's London to Brighton Veteran Car Run?   

Entries for the 2024 Run will open on 13 March. Once entries open, if you have entered the Run previously, you will be able to log into your account and submit your entry for this year's Run.

New to the Run? If you are new to the Run, you will need to create an account and provide details of the car you wish to enter when entries open. A member of the Veteran Car Run Team will then get in touch to provide you with instructions on the next steps of the entry process. Please note that before a vehicle is accepted on the the Run it must have a valid VCC dating certificate or passport. Our Veteran Car Run Handbook is an ideal source of information for all would-be participants.

How can I get a passenger seat on the Run?   

Unfortunately, unless you are part of a crew of a vehicle registered for the event, it is rarely possible to get a passenger seat on the Run. Please keep an eye on our newsletters for any opportunity that might arise.
