ROLLS-ROYCE CONGRATULATES GOODWOOD ON GREAT BRITISH LUXURY SUCCESS
3 November 2015
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars are delighted to congratulate Goodwood on winning 'Best British Luxury Experience' at the prestigious Walpole British Luxury Awards 2015. The award was received by the Earl of March at a glittering event held at the Dorchester in London yesterday.

Goodwood faced exceptionally tough competition, with Corinthia London, Fera at Claridge's, Fortnum & Mason and Harrods also shortlisted in the 'Best British Luxury Experience' category. The judges recognised Goodwood's impeccable attention to detail, outstanding customer focus and quintessentially British charm - values shared with Rolls-Royce, the world's leading super-luxury manufacturer.

Rolls-Royce and Goodwood enjoy a unique and symbiotic relationship - a meeting of two Great British brands. This close association began in 2000, when plans for the company's new Head Office and Manufacturing Plant were first unveiled, to be located on the South Westerly corner of the Goodwood Estate. The association extends beyond physical location with, for example, the Earl of March serving on the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Board as a Non-Executive Director.
