I can’t blame Quentin Bell for tagging along with the London to Brighton
Veteran Car Run, but someone should tell him that the event is for cars
made before 1905. His 1930s Austin Seven doesn’t qualify as a legitimate
entrant. A veteran car would have completed the run. He must have felt
that bodily refreshment was more important than getting to the coast. A
failed PR stunt if ever there was one!
