THE annual commemoration run for veteran cars from London to Brighton will take place this year on Sunday, 12th November. The run is organised by the R.A.C. to commemorate the date on which the Locomotives on ,Highways Act, 1896, came into force. l’Ins Act for the first time relieved motorists of the need for being preceded by a man carrying a red flag, and fixed a maximum speed for motor cars of 14 m.p.h. Cars eligible to compete in the Rim must

have been manufactured not later than 1904, which means that every car participating is at least twenty-nine years old. Last year seventy-four cars were entered ; the oldest was built in 1894, and practically every type of car from the earliest single cylinder with tube ignition to the first of the big four cylinder tourers was represented. The Run is not in any sense a race or competition, the only award being an R.A.C. certificate to each car arriving at

Brighton within the time limits laid down. The first car will start from Moon’s Super Service Garage, Buckingham Palace Road, S.W. I, at 9.30 a.m. on Sunday, 12th November, the remaining cars leaving at minute intervals. The route will be via Victoria Street, Westminster Bridge, Kennington, Brixton, Streatham, Croydon By-Pass, Redhill, Reigate, Crawley and Brighton. The first car is expected to arrive at the Aquarium Garage between 12 and
