London-Brighton Veteran Car Run 2010

This is a run for cars built before 1905. They leave Hyde Park at sunrise and travel to Brighton on the A23, about 60 miles. Some cars do not get there until dusk. Quite a few do not get there at all. Some broke down in the first few miles. About 500 cars took part. I stood by the road a few miles from the start and took about 700 photos in one and a half hours, with no more than a few seconds break between cars.
