Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce celebrated a record Goodwood Festival of Speed over the  weekend. Highlights included:

Classic-Rolls-Royce-Goodwood

Wraith. The newest model in the leading super-luxury  marque’s stable dominated the famous Goodwood Hillclimb during the  Supercar Run. The most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history,  Wraith completed the 1.16-mile course in under 60 seconds and reached  134 mph as the car accelerated past Goodwood House. Wraith was driven  by Festival favourite, Justin Law.

Soapbox Challenge. The Rolls-Royce four-wheeled  gravity racer, until recently on display at the Home of Rolls-Royce,  successfully completed the course reaching a top speed of 72 mph. The  racer was driven by Jamie Stephenson, a Rolls-Royce Analysis Engineer  based at the manufacturing plant in Goodwood.

Centenary Alpine Trial ‘Works Team’. Having  successfully completed the 1800-mile Centenary Alpine Trial two weeks  ago, Rolls-Royce was delighted to present the ‘Works Team’ that joined  47 Silver Ghosts – many over 100 years old – on this historic and  challenging event. The original 1913 Radley Car and the new 2013  Alpine Trial Centenary Ghost travelled up the Hillclimb side by side  each day to spontaneous applause from spectators stood along the  length of the course.

FAB1.Headed by Chris Evans, the FAB1   Million  project is set to raise £1 million in 2013 for Breast Cancer   Care.  The pink Bespoke Ghost Extended Wheelbase provided by   Rolls-Royce  Motor Cars for the project was warmly welcomed by the   crowds as it  took to the Goodwood Hillclimb. The Breast Cancer Care   reported  record donations for the project throughout the weekend.

Moving Motor Show. Following a record number of  invited guests driving Rolls-Royce Phantoms and Ghosts during the  Moving Motor Show, the exhibition stand welcomed thousands of visitors  to view the new Rolls-Royce Wraith on static display throughout the weekend.

Course Car. The Course Director’s car this year was a  Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, resplendent with race lights and Goodwood  decals. The car was seen at speed between each Hillclimb Run  throughout the weekend.

The Fleet. The largest fleet of Rolls-Royce motor  cars ever seen in the UK wafted around the Goodwood area during the  Festival of Speed, with invited guests being conveyed in luxury from  the Home of Rolls-Royce on the south-eastern corner of the Goodwood Estate.
