Rolls-Royce Motor Cars recently celebrated the largest gathering of Rolls-Royces in the world at the 56th Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club Annual Concours and Rally.
The spectacular setting of Burghley House in Stamford, Lincolnshire, provided a beautiful location to host the record number of Rolls-Royce cars, consisting of over 1000 classic and modern day cars gathered together for the first time in the Club’s history.
Goodwood-built Rolls-Royce cars popular with RR owners
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars honoured the occasion with a display of seven Goodwood-built Phantoms, Ghosts and Wraiths. An increasing number of Rolls-Royce enthusiasts are choosing to buy Goodwood-built Rolls-Royce cars to complement their classic heritage collection, the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts club have reflected this by the launching the ‘Goodwood Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Register’. Although the register is relatively new, it is now one of the fastest-growing sections within the Club.
Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “The Rolls‑Royce Enthusiasts’ Club is a vital custodian of our marque’s remarkable history. Events such as the Annual Concours and Rally serve to give the wider public close access to some of the most important and rare motor cars in automotive history. The incredibly warm reaction to our stable of contemporary motor cars at these events is testament to our careful and successful custodianship of the Rolls-Royce brand.”
