Madeira Drive Petition (Brighton Speed Trials)

Recommended Posts

Please take a moment to consider adding your name to this petition, which seeks the re-opening of Madeira Drive, Brighton - closed to traffic since April - where the historic Speed Trials take place (along with other car and bike events/meets as well).

The Speed Trials have been held since 1905 and are believed to be the oldest running motor race.  I'm sure many of you have spectated and/or competed or know of those who have.  The event has been at risk before in recent years (after a fatal crash) but was saved by the City Council.  Let's hope this time it doesn't fall as collateral damage to the coronavirus emergency.

Naturally, feel free to spread the word!

Done as well. As a resident of Brighton for 5 years in the late 80's i spectated at a number of speed trials. They were great. A shame to see them go albeit its not PC to enjoy petrol swilling events these days.
