The speed trials form a unique event, where vintage and exotic classics meet the latest in street and racing cars.

Public access is allowed to the paddock and startline 'funnel' allowing visitors to get much closer to the action than at most events.

In 1936 Motor Sport described the event as: "undoubtedly the most important speed-trials on the British Calendar." The first speed trial, called the "Brighton Motor Trials", was held in July 1905, but because of the cost and opposition from ratepayers, it was not held again until 1923.

A police ban of racing on public roads interrupted activity from 1925–1931, but because Madeira Drive was a private road owned by the council it was eventually exempt from the ban.

The first race was held 19–22 July 1905 after Sir Harry Preston persuaded Brighton town council to tarmac the surface of the road adjacent to the beach between the Palace Pier and Black Rock to hold motor racing events.
