This gallery is devoted to celebrating Bexhill’s role as the birth place of British Motor racing. You can see three vehicles representing different eras and technology: a reproduction steam driven 1902 Serpollet or ‘Easter Egg’, a 1958 mk III Elva sports racing car and the 1993 world record breaker Volta electric car.
