British Car Day, Bronte Creek Park, Ontario, Canada.

The third Sunday of September every year.
BCD Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Ontario, Canada.

Massive, massive showing of a thousand British built or designed cars.
Anything goes....

A great turnout of Proper Motor Cars today.

Good registration number here:

And my shocking factory Mustard Parkertex  veloured, Regency Bronze T got a third place award (simply people's choice) in the Bentley category.

Beaten by two MK VIs.

First place. GM's car.

I never took a photo of the second place car. OMG...!

Sorry, but a Morgan Aero on Bentley Spotting. What a cool car...

And other nice British cars.
Rover 3500S:


Moggie van:

A brilliant day.

Thoroughly enjoyed the eight hours I spent there.

Blast in the Bentley

It's always fun to see people having fun in their Bentleys.

Check out this girl having a good go at driving hers.

I dig the driving gloves.

Bentley Racing at the Nurburgring

The last round of the Blancpain Endurance Series at the Nurburgring is on soon.

I'm certainly looking forward to watching these Bentley Boys racing.

"Sitting in second place in the PRO Cup Teams’ championship, Bentley Team M-Sport is looking to take a maximum score from either of its two Bentley Continental GT3s to close the nine-point gap and leapfrog the leader.

In addition, the drivers of the #7 Bentley Continental GT3 - Guy Smith (GB), Andy Meyrick (GB) and Steven Kane (GB) - will be looking to win the PRO Cup Drivers’ championship. With a 15-point deficit and five drivers/driver line-ups ahead of them in the table, the challenge is tough and the car must finish on the podium to have even a chance of lifting the series’ trophy.

This weekend wearing #31, a race-winning number for Bentley at the famous Brooklands racetrack in 1929, the team of Andy Soucek (ES), Maxi Buhk (DE) and Maxime Soulet (BE) is determined to end the season on a high in its identical 4.0-litre V8-powered machine and, with points from the highest scoring car counting towards the teams’ championship tally, both Bentley Continental GT3s will be equally focussed on an outright race-win"

You can watch the race live here on below.

Also BentleyComms will be live tweeting from the Nurburgring - check what they are saying below.

Good luck Bentley Boys!

Her is some qualifying action.

Perfection In The Park

This photo is taken from the Jan/Feb 1992 edition of Rolls-Royce Motors "Voice" magazine:

It was shot in Regents Park, London to celebrate what is stated to be the last Rolls-Royce Phantom VI to be built.

These four cars would certainly be perfection in the garage.

Bentayga - the world's fastest SUV: High Speed test

The Bentley Bentayga. It's fast.

Walnut & willow

This 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, chassis #PRH4850, was offered for sale by Hooper & Co in the very early nineties:

The location of the photo is immediately recognisable as the courtyard of the Hooper & Co premises in Kilburn, North London.

Its described as walnut over willow gold with dark brown Connolly leather to the front compartment and chocolate brown velvet to the rear.

And advertised as having completed only 9,000 miles from new.

The asking price was GBP 325,000 - a massive sum  for even the best example!

Not only then, but today too.  

A quick search shows that #PRH4850 was also offered at subsequent Coys Auctions in November 1998 and October 2000, but that it failed to sell on both occasions.

Please tell us if you know anything more about it...

Rolls-Royce Dawn

Well I have witnessed dawn from a Rolls-Royce.

The new Rolls-Royce Dawn to be unveiled at Frankfurt next week will be an interesting car.

Dawn is a beautiful new open-top motor car with a name that suggests the fresh opportunities that every new day holds.

An old name from the original Crewe Rolls-Royce archives...

But very few convertibles.

The original Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn was the first standard steel bodied car from Crewe.

Then it became an 'economy' version of a Silver Spur with leather an vinyl trim mix.

But now the new Goodwood Rolls-Royce has the dawn of the new Dawn.

Basically a Wraith Drophead coupé.

Here are some renderings and spy shots:

So the question is....will Tony Orlando order one?

Can't wait to see it next week.
