Brighton Racecourse will host the first ever ‘Used Cars on Sundays’ meeting this week. It’s planned that the event will bring together hundreds of buyers and sellers of second-hand cars in an environment where they are completely free from middle-men and dealer interference.

The event will be the first of a series of meetings at various UK locations. These will offer both buyers and sellers the opportunity to meet hundreds of prospective purchasers and cars. This Sunday’s event will be open from 8am until 6pm, giving buyers plenty of opportunity for a thorough look around. Sellers pay a fixed entry fee of £20 for a car, £35 for a motor-home, or £10 for a motorbike on turning up; pitches can also be reserved, and vehicles registered for sale online. If you’re buying, entry to the event is free. The best news for both parties is that the events will be held on neutral ground. There are no salesmen looking to inflate prices for their own gain, which will leave both buyer and seller free to settle on the most favourable price. The RAC will offer vehicle inspections and history checks on the spot. The British School of Motoring is also involved, and parts and accessories will be available to buy on the day.

Already planned are similar events at Kempton Park Racecourse, and at to-be-confirmed locations in Kent, Hampshire, Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire. Information on venues and dates can be found at www.usedcarsonsunday.com.
