THE much anticipated Speed Trials event was attended by hundreds of spectators and participants yesterday.

Madeira Drive in Brighton has hosted the trials since 1905, making it the oldest event of its kind.

The sun was shining and large crowds gathered throughout the day to watch the two timed runs, in which both new and old vehicles took part.

Footage shows the cars lining up for their race against the clock.

Organisers, Frost Cars, tweeted yesterday that the overall winner of the trials was number 89 the Audi R8 V10+.
