National Speed Trials

2007: Saturday, 8 September
Score Board
Top line: mph
Bottom line: seconds

Organised by Brighton & Hove Motor Club, the National Speed Trials are the original, the first motoring event to have started in Madeira Drive; the one which set the precident which the rest have followed.

The event dates back to 1905. In fact, Madeira Drive was resurfaced for the then-new tarmac material especially so that the first speed trials could take place (see: history).

Where all the other events end in the Drive, and vehicles are for the most part stationary, the centre of attraction at the Speed Trials is speed!

Naturally, safety has been a major concern throughout the history of the event.

The Speed Trials are the 100 metre sprint of the motor racing world. The distance is just a quarter of a mile, and so not long after the drivers get up to speed they looking to brake.

But it's not just speed. There are many classic motors on display, and lots of prizes for the best this and that.
