What date is the 2021 Run?

The RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run is scheduled for 7 November 2021. Traditionally the Run takes place on the first Sunday in November, with the first cars leaving London at sunrise.

What year of manufacture does my veteran car have to be to enter the Run?

Every veteran car must be manufactured before 1905. To prove the date of manufacture each entry must be accompanied with a Veteran Car Club of Great Britain (VCC) Dating Certificate or Passport.

What is a VCC Dating Certificate or veteran car Passport?

Every vehicle that enters the Run must have a VCC Dating Certificate or Passport issued by the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain’s Dating Advisory Committee advising that the vehicle was manufactured prior to 1905.

If your vehicle does not have a Dating Certificate or Passport number, please contact the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Advisory Committee directly: Web: www.vccofgb.co.uk Tel: +44(0)1462 742 818 or email: hq@vccofgb.co.uk.

Please note that you can submit and pay for your entry without a Dating Certificate or Passport, but your vehicle will not be officially accepted into the Run until a copy of your valid dating certificate or passport is sent to the Veteran Car Run Team. Please refer to the Entry Regulations for further clarification about the entry criteria and the cancellation terms before proceeding with your entry. Should you have any queries, please contact the Veteran Car Run Team by telephone: +44 (0) 1483 524 433 or email: VCRadmin@goose.co.uk.

I previously entered the Run in 2020, am I eligible for a partial refund on the 2021 Run?

As detailed in the email sent out to participants upon the Run’s cancellation last year, we will be honouring this commitment with an £80 refund (including VAT) and a guaranteed place on the 2021 Run for last year’s participants.

We will aim to process your entry and issue the £80 refund, if eligible, within 10 days of your application for the 2021 run. This is an automatic process, but please contact the administrator at VCRAdmin@goose.co.uk if you have not received the refund after 10 days have passed.
