Bonhams VCR Auction

The Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run supported by Hiscox is one of the world’s longest standing and most famous historic motor car events, and Bonhams is delighted to partner the Royal Automobile Club as title sponsor. 

This is the fourteenth  year that Bonhams auctioneers has been a sponsor, although we have supported the Run for many years prior to that by providing the much-welcomed mulled wine and hot chilli on arrival at the finish line in Brighton.

Most of the team at Bonhams participate on the Run, with many driving their own motor cars. We are not just auctioneers, but very much active enthusiasts who enjoy – like our clients and customers – the hobby of old motoring.

Over these past 14 years, Bonhams has worked with the Royal Automobile Club and event organisers to develop the Run from a single day attraction to an entire weekend. 

The weekend now commences on the Friday with the annual Bonhams sale of London to Brighton eligible motor cars and early automobilia. Some motor cars in the auction are even offered with an entry into the Run, so you can "buy on Friday, drive on Sunday".

In 2017 the Sale was held at Bonhams headquarters in London’s New Bond Street – just a short walk away from the start of the Run in Hyde Park – where 26 carefully selected vehicles went under the hammer. The Sale was a huge success and all bar one found new homes.

Bonhams Chairman, Robert Brooks, a lifelong fan of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, said: 

"The annual London to Brighton Run is an historic and globally-renowned event that I have grown up with and which brings back many a fond memory. 

I have always loved this event, and it is one which we as a company are extremely proud to have helped sustain. We are honoured to be the event’s main sponsor and look forward to many more years’ involvement with it."
