London To Brighton Veteran Car Run

London To Brighton Veteran Car Run
Went along to the start of the London To Brighton Veteran Car Run in Hyde Park. An early start, got up at 6am and was in the park around 7am. Weather was damp and drizzly and the light was poor which meant the pictures I got were crap, not helped by being under trees, so only two pics posted here.

These cars are quite amazing, they are all PRE 1905!!! 100 years old and more!!!

I was pleased to see Genevieve, a 1904 Darracq, made famous by the (very good) film of the same name, from 1953. I was disappointed not to get a good picture of her though (not posted here)!

A good atmosphere about the place, quite a few posh people around. The guy doing the commentary on the PA, sounded like a Harry Enfield character!

The run to Brighton is 60 miles. Great to see these cars getting used (in the rain) and not sitting pampered in a museum all the time.
