Significant route change for the Veteran Car Run for the first time in 60 years

Participants on the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, supported by Hiscox, will be using an alternative route out of the capital this year.
The 400+ pre-1905 veteran cars will leave Hyde Park at sunrise, passing many well known landmarks – Hyde Park Corner, Buckingham Palace, Horseguards and Big Ben before crossing Westminster Bridge.
However, with the centre of Brixton, in South London, undergoing long term road works, participants then will leave London via Kennington, Clapham and Morden, passing through Balham – famously described by Peter Sellers as ‘Bal-Ham, Gateway to the South’ in a 1940’s BBC radio comedy sketch – along the way.

Workshop - Lehrling in Beaulieu
Mittwoch, 20. September 2017

The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu has appointed a new workshop apprentice as an investment in the future of its historic vehicle collection at a time when few specialist workshops are taking on trainees.
New apprentice Emily Leese, aged 18, joins the museum’s experienced workshop team to help maintain and restore its collection of more than 250 historic vehicles. A young woman in an industry traditionally dominated by older men, Emily’s training will help to keep alive the essential skills needed to look after and preserve the museum’s remarkable machines.
When she completes her apprenticeship, Emily will become the first to do so since Museum Manager and Chief Engineer Doug Hill finished his apprenticeship 40 years ago.
