CHICHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM – June 14, 2013: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars proudly presents enthusiasts with an extraordinary way of engaging with the 2013 Centenary Alpine Trial.

Using pioneering technology and online historic imagery, ‘History Pin’ enables enthusiasts to view images from the original 1913 Alpenfahrt, juxtaposed against pictures taken live from the 2013 recreation.

On 14 June 2013, 47 vintage Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts will depart from Vienna, wafting through Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Italy before returning to Vienna on 29 June 2013 – exactly 100 years to the day since privateer entrant, James Radley, emphatically completed the original event, helping to cement the marque’s reputation for peerless reliability and mechanical excellence.

The cars will tackle over 1,800 miles over some of the world’s most spectacular and challenging mountain passes.
