    Background: The 76th annual London to Brighten Rally, for veteran and vintage cars, was held on Sunday (5 shots) despite drab and often wet weather. Some 230 cars, the oldest an 1895 German-entered Benz, completed the course within the allotted time. In London thousands gathered at Hyde Park to watch the old but beautifully-restored vehicles chug away from the start-line at one-minute intervals. Among those taking part was former World Champion racing driver Grahman Hill, at the Wheel of a 1903 Weleley Tonneau.
