The RM Sotheby's London to Brighton Veteran Car Run welcomes Lockton as official insurance partner
The Royal Automobile Club is delighted to welcome Lockton as the official Insurance Partner to the RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, the world’s longest-running motoring event and the greatest celebration of early pioneering automobiles, taking place on Sunday 5 November 2023.
This new partnership reflects Lockton’s position as the world’s largest privately held insurance brokerage firm, as well as its deep passion for collector’s cars, both old and new. Lockton Performance, the firm’s specialist motoring division, provides cover for some of the most exclusive classic and supercar collections.
As part of the multi-year partnership, Lockton will be hosting the Participants’ Reception on Saturday 4 November, on the eve of the Run. This will take place in the Club’s historic clubhouse on Pall Mall in central London. A special Lockton Achievement Award will also be presented during the reception to a worthy entrant of significant note.
Amplifying both its appreciation and enthusiasm for the motoring sector, Lockton is also a high-profile partner of Salon Privé at Blenheim Palace. In addition to providing cover for classic and performance cars, car collections and other luxury assets, Lockton is also a trusted advisor to many of UK’s most prestigious motor clubs including those for Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Porsche.
“We are delighted to be welcoming Lockton to the Royal Automobile Club and, in particular, to the RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run – a magical celebration of motoring freedoms which the Club has lovingly curated for nearly 100 years,” said Ben Cussons, Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club. “Lockton has a wonderful reputation and its fervent support for the Participants’ Reception over the coming years will be very much appreciated by all those ensuring this wonderful, world class event continues going from strength-to-strength.”
Simon Ambler, Head of Lockton Performance, said: “We are thrilled to be the official insurance partner of the RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run. We are every bit as passionate about looking after our clients’ luxury, classic or performance cars as they are about owning and driving them. Exceptional cars – like all those extraordinary vehicles setting out to the Sussex coast – deserve exceptional cover, which is exactly what Lockton Performance provides.
Rachel Gilliam, Head of Lockton Private Clients (incorporating Lockton Performance), said: “We are delighted to become a part of the world’s longest-running motoring event. Lockton’s support coincides with the release of our very first Luxury Assets Report, which brings together our market-leading expertise in the insurance of passion assets which encompasses our core specialism of specialist motor insurance. The report, produced by Lockton Private Clients, provides a series of insights across this broad range of luxury and passion assets, including motor vehicles and we are thrilled to amplify our passion for the motor industry through this unique partnership.”
