Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run 2019 has announced a new and important partnership with CARS (Classic Automotive Relocation Services).
Traditionally significant and organised by the Royal Automobile Club since 1930, the iconic Bonhams Veteran Car Run takes place on the first Sunday in November. 2019 will see in excess of 400 two, three and four-wheeled vehicles all built before 1905 taking part on the 3rd of that month in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators.
The historic veteran convoy journeys from London to Brighton and is now the worlds longest running motoring event.
Classic Automotive Relocation Services
Classic Automotive Relocation Services is a renowned vehicle transportation specialist and is now the ‘Official Transportation Supplier’ to the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run 2019.
The company was founded in 1989 and has now firmly established itself as one of the most respected and trusted transporters of historic, rare and prestigious motor cars in the world over the past three decades; a fitting partner to the world’s longest-running motoring event.
With participants bringing their often unique pioneering pre-1905 veteran horseless carriages from across the world to take part in the celebrated pilgrimage from Hyde Park in London to Madeira Drive on the Brighton seafront, the proven expertise and experience offered by CARS is a welcome addition to the Run.
James Walker, Director of CARS said:
“CARS has looked after some of the most valuable and irreplaceable motor cars in the world and prides itself in ensuring they arrive in perfect condition, on time and with no unexpected costs.
“On our 30th anniversary we are delighted to have been endorsed as the ‘Official Transportation Supplier’ to the famous London to Brighton Run and we are looking forward to helping veteran car owners to bring their vehicles to London and to get them safely home again afterwards, stress-free.”
Miles Wade, Club Secretary of the Royal Automobile Club commented on the appointment:
“We are delighted to welcome CARS to our family of highly valued official partners for the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.
“Dating back to the dawn of motoring, all these extraordinary vehicles which set out on a chilly Sunday morning towards Brighton are now well over 110 years old and need careful handling. The wide range of services offered by CARS will undoubtedly prove invaluable to many of those participating, whether they are bringing their wonderful vehicles from Newcastle or New York.”
In addition to becoming the Official Transportation Supplier to the Run, CARS will also provide support at the half-way stop at Honda Crawley where Run participants will be able to warm-up with a hot drink and refreshments, providing a welcome break en route from London to Brighton.
