Excitement is growing for the “Hands across the Sea” International Weekend organised by the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts’ Club. It is happening at Westenhanger, Folkestone Racecourse, Nr Hythe which is a huge site
of some 220 acres, so there is plenty of room to enjoy yourself and the spectacular displays of cars that will represent our motoring heritage. You will see all sorts of magnificent cars from Rolls Royce to Aston Martin to “hand built” Morgan Sports Cars, to name but a few. The spotlight will not only be on the classic cars but also on our very elegant veteran treasures from the Edwardian period and those truly sumptuous cars from the 1920s and 1930s of the type seen on “Downton Abbey”. Many of the well known car clubs will be attending, displaying the various car types that represent their particular marque
from limousines and saloons to sports cars and doctors coupes. The quality of build with precision engineering and superb visual design will be available for all to see and marvel at, from the quietness of the engine to the flowing body shapes hand crafted by experienced coach-builders. Many of the car owners have spent years restoring their vehicles to pristine condition, costing thousands of pounds,
with nothing but the best workmanship and finish is applied, which is why they display their cars with pride.
The Madonna Car (Pictured on the front cover of May 2015 “Hythe & Romney Life”) will be there.
