Having first taken place in July 1905, the Brighton Speed Trials can rightly be considered as being the longest running motor sport event in the world.
114 years later and Saturday, September 7 sees yet another running of this iconic event, the current format being a standing-start ¼ mile sprint along Brighton seafront’s Madeira Drive.
With up to 200 cars entered, there are also 75 motorcycles taking part, an eclectic mix including machines from the 1920s up to the present day.
The VMCC Sprint Section will once again be organising the motorcycle side of things, by kind invitation of the event organisers, the Brighton and Hove Motor Club.
