This week, the Royal Automobile Club announced it has been forced to cancel the 2020 RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run (Sunday 1 November). Given that the Run has taken place without interruption since 1947, this decision has not been taken lightly.
The organisers worked tirelessly with the local authorities along the route to plan a Run which would be safe for the participants, staff and spectators. However, respecting the Government’s efforts to control the current rise in COVID-19 infections, this is no longer possible.
All participants and supporters are now looking forward to celebrating the 125th Anniversary in style next year on 7 November 2021.
The Royal Automobile Club thanked the Veteran Car Run Steering Group, partners and participants for their encouragement, commitment and support – and wished everyone a safe year ahead.
