Brighton Run's best photo revealed

| 16 Dec 2011

This is the picture that took the honours in the increasingly popular - and ever more competitive - annual hunt for the best photo taken on the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.

Charles Wordingham, from Brighton, captured the winning image on the event on 6 November as 500 pre-1905 cars undertook the historic 60-mile journey.

The 1903 Panhard-Levassor it features was entered and driven by Sir George White.

Wordingham's prize in the sixth annual competition is the opportunity to ride as a passenger on the 2012 London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, on Sunday 4 November.

Ian Seccombe, from Newick in East Sussex, took the first runner up slot for the second consecutive year with his lovely shot of a 1902 Panhard et Levassor driven by Tim Schofield of Bonhams, waved off from the event’s 75th anniversary start in London’s Hyde Park.

Second runner up was Paul Allen from Maldon in Essex with his picture of the majestic 111 year-old Milwaukee (steam) car entered by Loic de L’Arbre and driven by Maurice Goepp standing pride of place on the Concours d’Elegance amid the inaugural Regent Street Motor Show, which preceded the 2011 Run on Saturday 5 November.

Lewis Williams, aged seven from Bexley in Kent, was awarded the Young Photographer of the Year accolade with his atmospheric image of the 1901 Pick of Robert Hadfield.
