More than 1,000 guests attended the official launch of Strive for Perfection, which took place at Grosvenor House hotel in central London on 6 October 2023, and the London Press Club Ball that followed.

The beautifully designed and fully illustrated hardback book was produced in partnership by leading publisher St James’s House and the International Club for Rolls-Royce and Bentley Enthusiasts (or RREC), and was written by an editorial team of renowned motoring journalists and industry experts.

20 years of Goodwood

Strive for Perfection celebrates the 20th anniversary of Rolls-Royce Motor Car’s extraordinary production plant at Goodwood in West Sussex, exploring the marque’s commitment to engineering excellence and sustainability, and the facility’s history to date as the beating heart of Roll-Royce’s car-making process.

To resonate with the book’s theme of sustainable luxury, a carefully curated selection of high-end brands was present at the launch, enabling guests to immerse themselves in a world of luxurious tastes, products and experiences.

London Press Club Ball

The elegant book launch was followed by the renowned London Press Club Ball, presented by the London Press Club and sponsored by the SJH Group. This glittering annual event was an opportunity for the leading figures in UK media to not only honour their own but also raise money for The Journalists’ Charity.
