The annual rally of the coolest, customised and creative smart takes place on 27 September from London to Brighton.

Thesmartclub and DaimlerChrysler UK have joined forces again in 2003 to host a mass gathering of the iconic and eco-chic two-seater cars.   The event starts at Kempton Park in South London and finishes in Black Rock Car Park in Brighton.

A colourful concourse of cars will be displayed in Brighton and prizes awarded for the best modified smart and the most unusual and creative car.

Al Young, Chairman of thesmartclub, the UK’s official club for all things smart, said: “Last year surpassed our expectations when more than 800 smart owners took part in the first ever smart London to Brighton Rally.  There’s been huge interest already this year and we’re confident that even more smart fans will join in the carnival atmosphere.”

smart owners and enthusiasts who want to register their interest in joining the Rally or entering one of the competitions should log onto
