Live report: London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

Brighton was full of vintage cars yesterday. That’s the reason, according to the lovely lady who was serving me a smoked kipper roll, for the influx of sightseers on this grey morning. “It’s the old crocks” she said “but then there is always something”. And indeed there always is and as Modenus’ fearless leader Veronika has pointed out on numerous occasions, I ought to share a bit more often. So, here’s some old crocks, participants in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run snapped on my ancient iphone. If Nikon fancy sending me a nice D90, or even a D700 I promise clearer pictures and a mention in every blog.

The ‘old crocks’ of vintage cars as we should call them, have been processing the sixtyish miles from London to Brighton once a year for 75 years now. Over 500  pre-1905 cars started leaving London at just gone seven this morning and the last will arrive, complete with oily handed enthusiasts, late this afternoon.

Rumour has it that the drivers, there are entrants from 22 countries, include a sprinkling of showbiz celebrity and the occasional incognito royal. But that is, also, a typical weekend in Brighton.

And I do promise to share some more typical Brighton weekends. It is, after all, the home of Modenus in the UK.
