Seaside speed trials at Brighton

The Brighton Speed Trials is considered to be the longest running motorsport event in the world, as it first ran in 1905. For 2017, Saturday, September 2 sees yet another running of this iconic happening along Brighton seafront’s Madeira Drive.

Nowadays, the format of the Speed Trials is a single-lane standing-start ¼-mile sprint,
the event being run by the Brighton and Hove Motor Club, with a kind invitation going to
the VMCC Sprint Section to organise the motorcycle side
of things under an ACU competition permit.
