Regent Street Motor Show Saturday 1st November The annual Regent Street Motor Show is a unique free-to-view London motor show in one of the capital city's most famous streets. In 2013 the event attracted 400,000 visitors with displays of more than 300 cars spanning 125 years of motoring from the earliest 19th Century veterans to the very latest supercars. Stretching from Piccadilly Circus in the south to Oxford Circus in the north. The event also previews the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run and includes the EFG Concours d’Elegance featuring many of the extraordinary pre-1905 vehicles that will be driving from Hyde Park to the Sussex seaside resort on the following day. With its unique atmosphere and camaraderie, the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run (staged specifically as a non-profit making veneration) commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14th November 1896, which celebrated the Locomotives on the Highway Act. The Act raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ from 4 to 14mph, and abolished the need for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot waving a red flag. The Emancipation Run was first re-enacted in 1927 and has taken place every November since, with the exception of the war years and 1947 when petrol was rationed. The Royal Automobile Club has managed the Run with the support of the Veteran Car Club since 1930. For more information visit: www.veterancarrun.com. Terry Joyce Extra
