" BEHIND YOU " by Alan Keating / 762_AK - 2010 Photographer of the Year
Photos (especially of the cars!) - relating to any year of the RAC London to Brighton Veteran Car Run - LBVCR - (Sometimes called the "Old Crock " Race) - taking place most years since 1896, organised since 2004 by motion works, and since 2012 by Goose.
The 2012 run took place on Sunday the 4th November, and celebrated Great Britain.
Contributors may wish to include the displayed Start / Entry Number and the Year the photograph was taken in their photo's Tags - to help participants find pictures of their cars.
A list of entrants (with photos) is here.
The 2011 event celebrated Germany.
The 2009 event celebrated the early contributions to motoring of Belgium.
In 2008 the event was linked to Celebrating France and launched by the Moulin Rouge.
This is an unofficial "just for fun" group. For information, a link to the official (lbvcr.com) website is appended at the end of this description. The official website also has a gallery.
The Surrey Vintage Vehicle Society also has galleries which document the passage of the run through Redhill.

2012 also saw the third year of the RAC Brighton to London Future Car Challenge featuring contemporary Electric, Hybrid and Low-Emission ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicles which took place that weekend on the Saturday, finishing at Regent Street, London. The competitors aimed to minimise energy consumption using "road legal" vehicles in "real world" conditions (as opposed to some boring old high altitude salt flat). And let's face it, the world does not get much more real than the A23 high road.

P.S. Not a rule, because flickr should be a pleasure, not a chore - but contributors may wish to consider including the displayed Start / Entry Number and the Year the photograph was taken - and any other public identifying information - in their photo's Tags to help participants find pictures of their cars.
I am sure that Halfords no longer stock parts for these cars, the effort of maintaining these treasures in working, roadworthy order, must be astronomical..!
