rols royce

May 6, 2014: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars celebrated a seminal moment in British automotive history on Sunday 4 May. Charles Rolls and Henry Royce met for the first time on this date exactly 110 years ago and agreed to form the company that would become synonymous with the very best. Celebrations took place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex and at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.

Goodwood. Three very special contemporary Rolls-Royce motor cars – Wraith, Phantom Coupé and Ghost – were displayed at the ‘Supercar Sunday’ Breakfast Club meeting at the Goodwood Motor Circuit, a short distance from the company’s Head Office and Manufacturing Plant. The cars were hosted by a team of Rolls-Royce employees. The event was the largest in the history of the Breakfast Club, with 1000 cars on display inside the circuit and more than 14,000 visitors.

Manchester. A 2014 Rolls-Royce Phantom joined more than 30 heritage Rolls-Royces on display outside the Midland Hotel, the setting for the first meeting of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. The event was hosted by the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club.
