Fastest event of the year

First published in News

SPEED-fiends are gearing up for the comeback of the fastest event of the year.

More than two hundred cars and motorbikes will race in timed runs down Madeira Drive in the Brighton Speed Trials. The event on September 6 will end with a run-off between the top six to find the fastest car and bike.

The event was first held in 1905 but cancelled last year following the death of a competitor in 2012. Thousands backed its return. Entries for the event organised by the Brighton and Hove Motor Club are open until the end of the month, via the brightonandhovemotorclub.co.uk Entrants need a Motor Sports Association licence to compete. This year for the first time spectators will be able to view the action from a 21sqm LCD screen.

BHMC’s Tony Watts said: “We are expecting a very busy event this year.”
