[Reading time – 3 minutes]

Welcome back to our newsletter. It’s with great joy that we have some exciting announcements and memories we made to share with you. First of all, we’re giving you an impression of our Bentley Boys Tour where the Bentley Boys spirit came back to live. Besides this unforgettable event, we had a busy summer filled with rallying and some of our cars got sold in our showrooms in Geel and Knokke. But don’t panic, new stock just arrived in our showroom. As the summer comes to an end, we’re also announcing that we’ll have a stand at Interclassics Brussels in November. Continue reading to discover all our news for those who are ready to live like a real gentleman. 

Bentley Boys Tour

Inspirating generations. Relentlessly. We dived into the exhilarating stories of the legendary Bentley Boys and find out how we could keep their spirits alive, even today. As you all know, we’re proud to be a part of the rich Bentley Motors history. Besides our main activity as being coachbuilders just like the craftsmen in the 1920’s and 1930’s, we’re also reviving the unique atmosphere around our Bentleys by organizing some unforgettable events.

We’re still daydreaming about the weekend we had at Landgoed Altenbroek during our 2022 Bentley Boys. The strength of this event is a golden combination between the enthousiasm of all participants, all lovely Bentleys, our mutual passion and the collaboration between our partners. We believe it’s fair to say that we really brought the Bentley Boys spirit back to life.We’re proud to share the complete photo album of this event, click here to see all lovely pictures. Our aftermovie will be finished soon and showcased on our socials.

Besides thanking all Bentley Boys & girls for a lovely weekend, we’d like to thank all of them for supporting charity. We managed to break our record and raise over €8.000 with our Whiskey cabinet made out of a Bentley grille. All revenues will be donated to For A Better Life. 

We hope all participants enjoyed the 2022 Bentley Boys Tour just as much as we did and we look forward to welcoming you all on our next edition. In September 2023, we’re bringing our Bentleys back to their home country for a 5-day rally through national parks and scenic roads in England. Along the way we’re visiting the Brooklands Motor Circuit and the legendary Goodwood Revival. Enjoy a rally filled with gastronomic restaurants and exclusive hotels during this all-in Bentley Heritage Rally. 

But we won’t wait until 2023 to continue rallying. With the Bentley Boys Tour still fresh in our minds, we’re already packing up for another adventure. In a couple of weeks time, we’re setting course to the South African & Namibian dessert. Together with our classic cars, we’ll enjoy the peace and quietness of the wilderness on the other side of the planet. During this rally from Cape Town to Namibia, we’ll encounter lots of wildlife and nature during this wonderful trip. 

Held from 18 to 20 November at Brussles Expo, this world famous classic car show has multiple halls filled with nothing but the best classics of the past decades. We will attend this event with a pristine selection of classic cars we have in stock at Belrose Classics as well as our Bentley Specials that can be coachbuilt according to your wishes and demands. Feel free to stop by and discover our finest classic cars and own creations on our stand at Interclassics Brussels.

Spot us in Goodwood!

Just like last year, we’re heading towards the legendary Goodwood Revival this weekend. We’re looking forward to meeting many friends at this unique event and we’re already preparing our Bentley Boys Tour goes Goodwood event for 2023. Many of our clients are finding their way to the Goodwood Revival as well so we surely won’t be alone there. 

Our Bentley MK VI is this years transportation of choice. This is the base model for our Bentley Specials so we couldn’t think of a better car to take along the way. Please feel free to stop by for a chat, we’ll be there all weekend! See you across the pond.
