a British event for old cars built before 1905 that is held in November every year. The cars start at Hyde Park, London, and drive to Brighton. The time they take is recorded, but the event is not a race. It is a popular social occasion, with the drivers sometimes dressing in Victorian or Edwardian costumes. Many people go to Brighton to watch them arrive. Recently, other groups of car owners have organized their own London-to-Brighton runs at different times of the year.
