We are delighted to announce that entries for this year’s Summer Run on Thursday 20 July are now open. Last year’s Summer Run really proved to be a wonderful warm-up for the RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run and we are excited to be offering a similarly special event this July. As tradition dictates, the famous annual homage to the original Emancipation Run always takes place on the first Sunday November when participants often can experience challenging weather. With the sun higher in the sky, the Summer Run is a far more relaxed and sociable gathering, as well as a fabulous opportunity for veteran car owners to ready themselves for the main event later in the year.
The event will once again be based at the Club’s Woodcote Park Clubhouse in Epsom, heading out into the leafy lanes of rural Surrey after breakfast, taking in key points of interest while passing rich grasslands and a medley of woodlands and rivers – and to keep everyone on their toes, and on the maps, a series of challenges and tasks en route will add to the fun!
After a leisurely and delicious lunch, our participants will return to the Clubhouse in time for a glorious high tea on the Club’s Cedar Lawn overlooking the 350-acre estate, where the fun and games will continue with a concours, and croquet knock-out (simplified!) followed by a jolly prizegiving.
For those of you joining us for dinner, golf buggies will be at the ready to take you to a secluded spot in the grounds of the estate for cocktails and canapés before heading to dinner among the Club’s heritage fleet at the 17th century Motor House. The Club’s Executive Chef, Matthew Marshall, will be on hand to talk through the seasonal menu he has chosen, matched with fine wines and cheerful company.

This exclusive event is open to just 25 veteran motor cars. The entry fee is £250 per vehicle, to include breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea for two people.
