There’s a prize on offer to spectators lining the route for the best pictures shared on Twitter and Instagram that capture this Sunday’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, as it pootles its way from Hyde Park, through the length of Croydon, and all the way to the Sussex coast.
It’s not just the 400-plus historic cars from the dawn of motoring that hark back to Victorian and Edwardian times on the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, as many of the plucky participants also get into the nostalgic spirit of the annual event by dressing up in period costume.
There’s a special Best Period Dress Award that this year, for the first time, is open to a public vote. Both those taking part in this Sunday’s event and the thousands lining the 60-mile route are invited to post their favourite photographs on Twitter (https://twitter.com/VeteranCarRun) and Instagram (https://instagram.com/veterancarrun) using the hashtags: #VCRdress2impress with #VCR.
The best of these will then be judged, with the winning VCR entrant receiving a trophy plus a bottle of Hattingley Valley English sparkling wine.
The full route information for those wanting to join the public online vote can be found on the official website at www.veterancarrun.com.
