Brighton Speed Trials to go ahead after huge public campaign
6:20pm Thursday 23rd January 2014 in News
Brighton Speed Trials will go ahead in September this year following a huge public campaign.
The country’s oldest motorsports event was first held in Madeira Drive, Brighton in 1905 but was cancelled last year after the death of a competitor in 2012.
With safety concerns putting its future at risk, more than 12,000 people signed a petition calling on Brighton and Hove City Council to reinstate the event.
At a key town hall meeting today opposition councillors joined forces to give Brighton and Hove Motor Club permission to use the seafront strip.
