The Brighton and Hove Motor Club organise the Brighton Speed Trials. It’s a unique event where competitors can bring their vehicles of all classes down to Madeira Drive on the coast – to set the fastest time over quarter of a mile. It’s the best time to see supercars, motorbikes, three-wheeled motorbikes and tuned escorts alike give it the full beans. The noise is worth it all!
