2010 London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run is the world's oldest motoring event. It celebrates the  passing of the 1896 Light Locomotives Act, which abolished the requirement for motorised road vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot carrying a red flag, and also raised the speed limit from 4 to 14 mph. Each year, the event begins with the destruction of a red flag upon the start line in Hyde Park. Only vehicles manufactured before 1905 are eligible to take part, although on the day of the LBVCR I noticed that many other classic cars took the opportunity to drive along part of the route.

Gardner-Serpollet (steam) - 1900
