The Brighton Run pioneers With the regulations for this year's London-Brighton Veteran Run now available, it seems appropriate to recall how this now world-famous event started.

Your item about Sitges caught my eye, as I have driven on the track twice recently, during a Honda launch in Barcelona and in November 1998, on a drive from London to southern Spain.
