• Historic Commercial Vehicle Society London to Brighton Start

    12th May 2024

    Historic Commercial Vehicle Society London to Brighton

The Brighton Run Organisation Team and Society Trustees are very pleased to announce that the 61st HCVS “London” to Brighton Run will take place on Sunday 12th May 2024 with the exciting new start venue of Brooklands Museum, Weybridge, Surrey.  

Vehicles will commence setting off from 7:30am and the last vehicle is expected to depart at 9:30am

Members of the public will be allowed into the Brooklands site from 7:00am at the normal entrance fee, although the museum exhibits will not open until 10:00am.

Catering facilities will be open to the public from 7:00am.

A limited number of vehicles will start to assemble for the run on Saturday afternoon after 2:00pm.

This is the 61st HCVS “London” to Brighton run and it is expected that around 150 vehicles will take part travelling from Brooklands through Cobham, Leatherhead, Dorking and Reigate to join the A23 to Brighton, terminating there at Madeira Drive between 10:00am and 2:00pm.

The HCVS was the first commercial vehicle club to be formed in 1958 and is the largest organisation for historic vans, lorries, buses, taxis, fire engines, military and steam vehicles. Examples of all these types of vehicle will be seen in the run.

Carbon Offset - The HCVS is very aware that our vehicles do not necessarily meet current emissions standards and being mindful of the society’s environmental responsibilities it has joined a carbon balancing scheme specifically tailored to heritage vehicles through the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) So trees will be planted to offset our carbon emissions during HCVS organised road runs.

The route from Brooklands Museum, will be via Cobham village to Leatherhead (avoiding the low bridge) onto Dorking and Reigate before rejoining the usual route at Redhill.   Once again to avoid the traffic in the Crawley area, the route will be diverted on to the B2036 at Horley and follow this road all the way to Cuckfield, then join the traditional route.   The B2036 has large grass verges towards its southern end, so ideal for the watching public and photograph opportunities.      

Cars will be departing from 7:30am from the Museum.
