With only a few days left until entries for this year’s London to Brighton Classic Car Run close, the organisers have revealed that youtuber and motoring presenter ‘Auto Alex’ Kersten will be one of this year’s participants.
Auto Alex will set off from Brooklands Museum on Sunday 4th June in his 1982 Porsche 944, a car that regularly features on his channel. He will be joined by around 350-400 vehicles entered into the jaunt to Brighton’s seafront via a fantastic route that takes in the Surrey and East Sussex countryside.
He said: “I’m really excited to be taking part this year. The London to Brighton Run is iconic and to be able to do it in my Porsche will be a real honour. Not sure my fiancé Rhianne will feel the same as she’s navigating!”
The route for the Classic Car Run, now in its 33rd year, will take in the beautiful grounds of Penshurst Place in Kent as its midway stopping point where owners can enjoy a picnic and catch up with their fellow entrants.
The third Modern Classics and the 22nd Kit & Sports Car Run will be stopping at the fascinating Amberley Museum in West Sussex, which showcases vintage vehicles and transport from yesteryear.
All three Runs culminate on Madeira Drive where as well as celebrating completing the runs, there will also be prizes for the best period and fancy dressed participants.
If you fancy joining Alex on this year’s run the entry fee in all classes is £125.00 per crew of driver and navigator, with all run participants receiving a commemorative numbered rally board and solid brass rally plaque, a Tulip style route book, and a personalised certificate of entry.
Additional passengers including children are welcome join the event for a small fee. Special rates at the Brooklands Hotel and The Grand Hotel, Brighton, are also available to those taking part.
Entries close on Monday 1st May 2023.
