The Royal Automobile Club’s inaugural Brighton to London Future Car Challenge, a showcase for green cars, light commercial vehicles and motorcycles, will run on Saturday 6 November.
The event will feature the latest electric, hybrid and low-emission vehicles on the 60-mile route from Brighton to London.
It follows the traditional course of the world-famous London to Brighton Veteran Car Run in reverse, starting from Madeira Drive in Brighton and finishing in London’s Regent Street on Saturday afternoon.
The street will be closed to regular traffic and the cars will join the traditional International Concours display of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, which then takes place on Sunday 7 November.
The Brighton to London Future Car Challenge is not a race, but there is an optional challenge to use the least energy within a given time.
It’s open to road-legal concept, development, pre-production and production vehicles that feature and promote new or alternative energies. The closing date for entry is 30 September.
