Following a late decision by its title sponsor to withdraw support, the Royal Automobile Club was left with no alternative but to cancel this year’s driving challenge. A display area to showcase manufacturers’ latest cars and their cars for the future will, however, remain a key part of the Regent Street Motor Show in 2013.
Presented on Saturday 2 November, the Regent Street Motor Show will enable manufacturers to display, promote and talk about their new technology low emission cars to the Regent Street audience as in previous years.
The EFG International Veteran Car Concours d’Elegance, the largest single display of veteran cars anywhere in the world, will be another feature in the Regent Street Motor Show. This is a great celebration of the early pioneers of motoring and a sneak preview for the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run which starts at dawn from Hyde Park, the next morning, Sunday 3 November.
The Club remains committed to showcasing new vehicle technologies and is evaluating options for the Future Car Challenge in 2014.

About the Royal Automobile Club
Founded in 1897, the Royal Automobile Club's continuous support and promotion of the development of motoring in Great Britain began with the famous 1000 Mile Trial in 1900. In recent years the Royal Automobile Club has focused on running the three largest annual free-to-spectate motor shows in the country.
The Royal Automobile Club also presents a number of significant awards each year including the Tourist Trophy, the Segrave Trophy and the Dewar Trophy which recognises outstanding British technical achievement in the automotive field.
