Bentley tour travelling around New Zealand stopped off briefly in Ashburton on Thursday.

Twenty four Bentleys, mostly vintage or older models, stopped off at Bruce McIlroy’s Bentley and Rolls Royce service centre on the edge of Ashburton for morning tea.

The tour featured drivers from the UK, USA and Australia and has been organised by the Bentley Drivers Club of Great Britain. The six week tour will visit the main sights around the country and includes models from the 1920s to 1940s.
