The London–Brighton Historic Commercial Vehicle run is one of the premier events in the calendar for preserved commercial vehicle owners and enthusiasts alike. First held in 1962, this annual event has continued to feature every year since. Until 2019 it was traditionally held on the first Sunday in May, with vehicles traveling from London to Brighton where they line up on Marina Drive for judging and prizegiving in the afternoon. There is a rolling minimum age limit of 25 years, but vehicles may date back to the very origins of the internal combustion engine, while steam powered traction engines and wagons are also included.

Malcolm Batten first visited Brighton for the Run in 1971 and has been back each year without exception. This book highlights some of the vehicles on show between 1996 and 2022, when the run celebrated its sixtieth anniversary.
