Footage of London to Brighton Veteran Car Rally in November 1962, shot from the window of a moving vehicle and as the motorcars arrive in Madeira Drive, Brighton, by amateur film-maker Mr. Harrison.
The film opens with footage shot from a moving vehicle as it passes veteran cars on their way to Brighton. At Madeira Drive on Brighton's seafront, a sign reads "Careful drivers are welcome to Brighton. Souhaite la bienvenue aux automobilistes attentifs et courtois". The Palace Pier and the Royal Albion Hotel are seen behind. The motorcars drive past crowds of spectators standing along the seafront and under the arches of Madeira Drive. Union Jacks fly above. A mounted policeman moves past the camera.
