Celebrating Bexhill’s role as the birth place of British Motor racing
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.

There are hands on displays so you can have a go at changing a car’s tyre, installing spark plugs and see how engines work.
