The vast number of entrants, from across the globe, who continue to participate in the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run supported by Hiscox pays testament to the ever-growing popularity of this event. In true tradition, the Run takes place on the first Sunday of every November and commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14 November , which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act.

It was this Act that raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ from 4 mph to 14 mph and abolished the requirement for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot. The early law required the man on foot to carry a red flag but that requirement was abolished in The Locomotive Act was still widely known as the ‘Red Flag Act’ and, to mark this milestone, a red flag was symbolically destroyed at the start of the Emancipation Run, just as it is today before the start of the Run in Hyde Park.

As ever, the Run represents a rare opportunity for participants to take their extraordinary automobiles on this historic mile journey from Hyde Park in central London to the seafront in the Sussex resort of Brighton. Few events in today’s international calendar can claim such individuality, personality and character as the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run supported by Hiscox, where over examples of pre manufactured vehicles enter the pioneering spirit and engineering ability of the early motorist.

I would like to express my thanks to our title partner Bonhams for their continued support. Their sponsorship over the years has been an invaluable contribution to the growing success of this very special event. We are also extremely grateful to our other supporters: My thanks also extends to all volunteers including the VCR Steering Group as, without their time, effort and support this Run would not be able to take place.

Should you wish to spectate, participate or report on the event, this website aims to provide you with all the relevant information you need. The Act of Parliament raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ not exceeding 3 tons, from 4 mph to 14 mph.
