Manchester classic car rally for Rolls' centenary


A century after Charles Rolls' death, the birthplace of the Rolls-Royce brand celebrated his joint creation with a rally of classic cars in Manchester.

Charles Rolls met pioneering car manufacturer Sir Henry Royce in Manchester's Midland Hotel in 1904 and together they created a luxury car brand which became known across the world.

Rolls was killed in an air crash in 1910, at the age of 32.
