Photograph showing Charles Stewart Rolls (1877-1910), English motorist, aviator and motor car manufacturer, driving his Mors Racer motorcar at full speed around the Phoenix Park racetrack during the 50 Guinea Cup which he won. Rolls was a keen driver and was well known in the car world after taking part in many races of the time, such as the 1000 Miles Trial (1900), and the 15,000 Mile Trial (1907). He founded Rolls-Royce Ltd with Frederick Henry Royce (1863-1933) in 1906, which became one of the world's most famous marques. Phoenix Park is Europe's largest urban park. It was the venue for the Irish Grand Prix in 1929-1931, and still has a motor racing circuit.
