It seems that everyone wants to cram events into September, that last chance for some summer fun before nature decides it is time for autumn, with its winds and rain.  We missed coverage on a few events so this week we'll bring you a roundup of photos and videos from the last few weeks, first up The Brighton Speed Trials.

This event has a long history, in fact it is the longest running racing event in the world, it has also changed formats a handful of times, currently the event represents a quarter mile run along Madeira Drive, a closed road along Brighton's sea front.  The range of cars is usually fantastic, with Brighton and Hove motor club making sure it has as many interesting invited racers as possible.

There are many classes present from road going to single seaters, with a lot of seriously fast cars taking to the sprint.  Viewing is brilliant from the raised promenade the length of the strip, or gathering around the start line to see the cars launching.  The paddock is accessible, so getting up close and personal with some of the cars is possible.

We found some cool galleries from the event :
