Last September 30th, on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve of the Parc Jean-Drapeau, John Lennon's legendary Rolls-Royce Phantom V made a few laps under the beautiful fall sun and before amazed passers-by.
On loan from the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, the Rolls-Royce is presented at Pointe-à-Callière as part of The Beatles in Montreal exhibition. The famous Rolls was given permission to take a single drive outdoors on a closed circuit during its stay.
The car was driven by its official driver, Mr. Jim Walters, mechanic and owner of Bristol Motors, located in Victoria and specializing in the restoration of high-end automobiles. He has been servicing, caring for, and driving the Rolls for the past 20 years.
