AUTOCAR TO SUPPORT THE 125th ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE LONDON TO BRIGHTON RUN
The world’s oldest car magazine celebrates major motoring milestone of 1896 with the world’s longest running motoring event
Two of the world’s greatest motoring institutions are uniting to honour the 125th anniversary of the famous Emancipation Run. It was on a wet Saturday 14 November 1896 that a group of intrepid early motorists set off from London to Brighton to celebrate the passing into law of the Locomotive on the Highway Act.
Twenty four months after the curtain came down in 2019, the world’s biggest retro racing has bounced back in record breaking style.
Fuelled by two years of pent up demand, the three day festival staged at Silverstone, the home of British motor racing, has attracted both record ticket sales and record grids.
Kicking off three days of epic track action, Friday’s non-stop programme featured more than ten hours of exciting qualifying sessions, setting the all-important grid positions for the weekend’s packed programme of 21 star-studded races. Adding to the challenge, many of these sessions were staged on a tricky damp Grand Prix circuit
