BONHAM LONDON TO BRIGHTON VETERAN CAR RUN
Sunday 1 November
Cars leave Hyde Park 6.56am-8.30am and cross Westminster
Bridge soon after
See 500+ veteran cars - up to 118 years old - pass through
the streets of North Lambeth. A celebration of the
Emancipation Run held in 1896. Thirty vehicles travelled the
60-miles from London to Brighton to mark the passing into
law of the Light Locomotives Act which raised the speed
limit from 4mph to 14mph and did away with the requirement
for a person to walk in front of a vehicle waving a red flag
to warn other road users. The first reenactment was in 1927
and the LBVCR has been held every year except during World
War II and in 1947 due to fuel rationing. Route crosses
Westminster Bridge then via Westminster Bridge Road and
Kennington Road. This year's theme is celebrating veteran
vehicles manufactured in the USA.
