The organisers of the 2016 Veteran Car Run turned to Kevin Shortis and Ford Racing UK to again run the Burgess Hill final timekeeping post on the event. On post from 08.30 to 15.30, the timekeeping team clocked competitors as they drove past the timekeeping spot. Another huge entry of officially entered Veteran cars on the route were also joined by many older but not veteran cars to add to the occasion. A bright sunny but chilly day made the many spectators glad of a welcoming hot drink from the nearby Café Makora. Already the organisers have asked the Ford Racing UK team to look at returning for 2017.
