Well over a dozen Bentley cars, from those made in 1925 to the present day, took a well earned break from their UK tour for coffee and refreshments at the Bentley Owners Club in Apollo Park Wroxton. Not only did the vehicles encompass almost the entire 100 year history of the brand some had come from as far as Florida and Switzerland to be involved.
