An exclusive Ride & Drive experience organised by Bentley Cambridge included a bespoke visit to the world famous Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket.
In an affirmation of the successful Affinity Partnership between Bentley Cambridge and the Jockey Club Room, the full day of activities was attended by six clients of Barclays Wealth and hosted by Bentley Cambridge Sales Manager Andrew White and David Vernon, Private Banker at Barclays Wealth Management.
It was an early start for everyone, meeting at the Bentley Cambridge dealership on Milton Road at 5.30am where guests swapped their cars for the first of four different Bentley’s to be driven by then that day. Then it was off for Newmarket and the historic Jockey Club Rooms.
Then a dedicated and bespoke tour of the Gallops accompanied by a detailed narrative about the exercising training process by the Managing Director of the Jockey Club Estates.
Andrew White said: “It was a fabulous experience to be part of a jockeys day! It was a real honour to witness the gallops and see these giants of the horseracing world - worth more than a £250,000 - being put through their paces.”
After breakfast back at the Jockey Club, it was time for the Bentley Drive Experience when guests had the chance to enjoy the Bentley range in all its glory with test drives through the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire countryside.
Tim Turner, Executive Head Chef at the Jockey Club, designed a specially prepared three-course lunch and the day was rounded off with a private tour of the Private Rooms to view the unique equine art collection and historical memorabilia within the Rooms.
Andrew added: “The Jockey Club pulled out all of the stops to help us provide one of the most sensational days for the clients of Barclays Wealth Management.”
