Following the huge success of the first ever Summer Veteran Car Run last year, the Royal Automobile Club confirmed this event for pre-1905 cars will make a welcome return in July 2023.
Established to provide owners of pioneering vehicles with a leisurely opportunity to enjoy their cars, this year’s follow-up event is confirmed for Thursday, 20 July. It is a rare chance for spectators to see genuine dawn of motoring in action on the road, as their owners prepare to take part in November’s RM Sotheby’s London-to-Brighton Veteran Car Run – now in its record 127th year.
Sticking to last year’s winning format, the one-day 45 mile Summer Run will be based at the Club’s country Woodcote Park clubhouse near Epsom, Surrey. The intrepid veterans will then enjoy a unique day’s motoring excursion – as well as a convivial lunch-stop to catch up on tales of the morning – in the splendid countryside.
After returning to the seclusion of Woodcote Park, afternoon tea will be served, followed by an informal concours and jolly prizegiving in the glorious grounds.
Dinner will follow for those wishing to settle in for the afternoon, and soak up the evening sunshine and fine hospitality.
