London to Brighton Veteran Automobile Run

Wednesday 7th November 2012

The clocks were turned back more than 100 years on Sunday 4 November as 449 pre-1905 veteran cars lined up in the torrential rain at Hyde Park, London, to take part in the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run – the oldest motoring event in the world. Out of the 449 starters that set out from London's Hyde Park at 07:00, 372 successfully made the finish line at Madeira Drive, Brighton. 77 vehicles had to retire early due to technical problems. The first participant to finish was Ian Moore from New Milton, Hampshire crossing the finish line at 10:21 driving an 1899 Panhard et Levassor.

DK purchased on behalf of a client a 1904 Autocar in order to participate in this year's veteran run. The workshop team managed to prepare the car for the run in a short space of time proving how versatile the DK team are. The Autocar ran without fault the full distance to Brighton which is not a small achievement by any standards.
