How did the Regent Street Motor Show first come about?

The event first began in 2005 when the first Veteran Car Run International Concours was staged on Regent Street featuring the top 100 Veteran Cars from around the world, the day before the start of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

In 2010 this evolved into the Regent Street Motor Show incorporating 21st century vehicles and today it is the largest free-to-view motor show in the UK showcasing 125 years of motoring embracing everything from the earliest 19th Century veterans to the 21st Century cars of the future.
