It's time for the annual London to Brighton antique car rally, and Alan McKim and Ambrose Claverhouse are not going to let their friendship stop them from trying to humiliate each other. Along the way, some old jealousies are kindled to the point where the two men decide to have a "friendly" wager on who will be the first back to London. Once the competitive juices get all fired up, however, it quickly becomes a nasty, hotly-contested affair.

Great humoured classic. They don't make them like this any more.
This is a most wonderful film. I admit to having a bias towards this film because my mother played the shepherd girl.

It really is great fun to see the cars race - we're not talking great speed here - these are vintage cars, you know! They don't make them like this any more.
