THE TEAMSVeteran Car Run Steering Group
I have the good fortune to lead the Royal Automobile Club in providing a world class private members’ club and, as the oldest motoring organisation in the United Kingdom, promoting the interest of motorists and motorsport.
The Veteran Car Run is the Club’s signature motoring event, linking our past, present and future. That is why I participated in the 2013 London to Brighton Run in a 1901 Lanchester within eight weeks of becoming the Club Secretary. I discovered that participation includes dogged determination, ingenuity and skill and the occasional helpful push up a hill. I have now been involved in organising five Runs, the highlight of the Club’s London Motor Week.
I now know the Steering Group members well and have met many other participants in the last five years and am bowled over by your enthusiasm for one of our nation’s most important events. I am delighted to have the opportunity to ensure the Run’s continued success in the future and will seek to improve the experience for all our participants and spectators alike.
