Antique Bentley automobiles make Victoria stopover

Members of the Bentley drivers Club stopped in Victoria during a western North American tour.

The cars may be old but they are certainly mobile.

Members of the Bentley Drivers Club proved that again with their annual driving tour. This year’s 31-day trip saw drivers and cars leave from Long Beach, California, drive through Utah and up into both Alberta and British Columbia including through the Rocky Mountains.

Victoria was the final Canadian stop of the trip and drivers were headed to Seattle next, their final destination. They parked their vehicles on the front lawns of the Fairmont Empress hotel allowing locals and tourists to take a close look at the robust and luxurious automobiles.

Members of the club taking part in this year’s tour were from the USA, Australia and Monaco.
