A Veterans’ Event.
ON the 15th of this month the popular and amusing London to Brighton run for ancient motor vehicles will take place and from the entry list it seems likely that this event will be even better supported than on previous occasions.
At the time of writing nearly twenty cars have been entered, and it is expected that there will be some .additional participants on the day of the run. The event, which is limited to cars built prior to 1905, always causes great interest ; the start will be from Moon’s Super Service Garage, Buckingham. Palace Road, and the first veteran is scheduled. to start at 9 a.m.
IL The route will be over Westminster Bridge and through Brixton to the Croydon by-pass, and then on through Redhill, Reigate, Crawley and Bolney to the finish at the Brighton Aquarium Garage.
Veteran Cars, Ltd., the new concern which specialises in really old machines, are now busy tuning up several old stagers for this annual jaunt.
