Fiennes Restoration scoops another award for 1932 Rolls-Royce drop-head coupé at RREC Concours and Rally

The experts, enthusiasts and connoisseurs have spoken again: Fiennes Restoration won the coveted Masters Class rosette for the Swiss Graber-coachbuilt 1932 Rolls-Royce drop-head coupé at the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club Concours and Rally, Rockingham Castle, last weekend.

Fiennes Restoration’s work was also awarded the ‘Best in Class’ prize for the same car in 2010.

The annual event, now in its fifty-second year, attracts the highest number of Rolls-Royces ever gathered in one location, coming from as far afield as Scandinavia and Australia.

Having been selected as a prime example of unique craftsmanship and specialist skills showcased at a world-class event, Fiennes Restoration’s latest masterpiece was the subject of BBC Radio Northamptonshire’s Breakfast Show, announcing the Concours and Rally event in the course of an interview with Richard Raynsford, the Rolls-Royce’s owner.

Dr Will Fiennes of Fiennes Restoration is understandably pleased: ‘We have participated in the RREC Concours and Rally event for many years, showing the Rolls-Royce in various stages of its restoration process. It is particularly satisfying to be awarded a prize for two consecutive years, as recognition of our on-going efforts to achieve all-round excellence in our field.’

The award-winning Rolls-Royce will be at Salon Privé’s Concours d’Elégance this week, before embarking on the overseas adventure and challenge that is Pebble Beach Concours d’Elégance in California.
