History of the Run
This was The Motor Car Club's third Commemoration Run, but their first to Brighton. The newer Automobile Club (now the Royal Automobile Club) drove to Sheen House the day after.
This was the first year (at least in the modern era) that the cars officially stopped at the George Hotel, Crawley. The original initiative came from Crawley Borough Council, and the Mayor of Crawley has attended every Run since.
