CARS from across the ages will descend upon the Sussex coast for the return of this year’s London to Brighton Classic Car Run.

Starting at Brooklands Museum in Surrey, the birthplace of British motorsport, participants will head to the south coast on Sunday towards the finishing line at Madeira Drive on Brighton seafront. They will be welcomed by the event’s commentator and car enthusiasts from across the country.

Those crossing the finishing line this year will also be joined by star of TV show Wheeler Dealers Mike Brewer.

Speaking to Classic Car Weekly, he said: “I can’t wait to see all the cars lined up in the sunshine on the seafront and to meet all the owners.

“Days like this are what cars are made for and why we need to keep classics on the road.”

The event will also feature an awards ceremony for the best period dressed participants.

Vehicles over 40 years old are eligible to take part in the rally, with the oldest car at last year’s event dating back to the 1920s.

The Classic Car Run has taken place since 1988, giving owners of vintage and classic vehicles a chance to show off their cars and complete a self-guided scenic tour to the south coast.
