#LondonGP - Save the Brighton Speed Trials -- @z1radio @SaveBST

Jan 29, 2014, 04:12 PM, Brighton, The City of Brighton and Hove, England

Matthew presents #LondonGP your weekly motor sport and music extravaganza here on ZoneOneRadio

This week the show heads to Brighton, which since 1905 has been home to The Brighton Speed Trials - which makes it Britain and possibly the world’s longest running motor sport event

But political correctness has gone mad yet again and the event is under threat.

Brighton is the only place in the UK a green council and they have provisionally cancelled this year’s event.

#LondonGP is stepping in to put the tree huggers in their place. Matthew speaks to Tony Watts of the evocatively named Brighton and Hove Motor Club ahead of the council meeting where the final decision will be made.

And of course as always Matthew talks to and takes a music request from the most respected motor sport journalist in the world, Autosport Editor in Chief Andy van de Burgt

Music this week from Aqualung, The Jackson 5 and The Climax Blues Band amongst others…
