London To Brighton Classic, Modern Classics, And Kit & Sports Car Runs 2023 Open For Entries

Entries for this year’s London to Brighton Classic Car, Modern Classics and Kit & Sports Car Runs, held on Sunday 4 June, are now open.

Starting from the iconic Brooklands Museum, vehicles spanning decades of motoring are invited to take part in this non-competitive jaunt to Brighton’s seafront where the cars are displayed on Madeira Drive.

Organisers Pop Up Car Shows are currently creating a new route for 2023 that takes in the beauty of the Surrey/Sussex countryside with a few surprises along the way including an idyllic mid-way point to enjoy a picnic and socialise with the other participants.

Abby Green of Pop Up Car Shows said: “The Classic Run may now be in its 34th year, but we’re still finding new routes to take the entrants that are enjoyable, show off the landscape, and are a little bit challenging for both the driver and navigator.”

In accordance with the DVLA Historic Car Classification, the Classic Car Run will welcome all classic and vintage vehicles registered before 31st May 1983. In 2022, this category saw vehicles ranging from Morris Oxfords and Model A Fords to Alfa Romeos and VW Sciroccos.

The Modern Classics Run, now in its third year, is open to all vehicles manufactured between 1st June 1983 and 31st December 2003 so enjoys entries from vehicles such as an Austin Metro and Mazda MX-5 to BMW Z3 and Nissan Skyline.

The 22nd Kit & Sports Cars Run has no age limits on entries with Kit, Sports and Replica cars of all ages welcome to join the fun so expect to see Beach Buggies, Westfields and Chesil Speedsters on route.

As well as celebrating completing the runs, there will also be prizes for the best period and fancy dressed participants.

The entry fee in all classes of entry is £125.00 per crew of driver and navigator, with all run participants receiving a commemorative numbered rally board and solid brass rally plaque, a Tulip style route book, and a personalised certificate of entry.

Additional passengers including children are welcome join the event for a small fee. Special rates at the Brooklands Hotel and The Grand Hotel, Brighton, are also available to those taking part.

Entries, offered on a first come/first served basis, close on Monday 1st May 2023. To enter, visit or Tel: 07484 151 519.
