Park Place confirmed their status as leading 15-goal team in the UK after winning the Bentley Motor Royal Windsor Cup. In the thrilling match on the Queen’s field ,Charlie Wooldridge’s Twelve Oaks was defeated by Andrey Borodin team, Park Place, by 8-7 . There was not much room between the teams, not even a single instance when any of the two teams could have overcome their respective opponent proving it a close end match, the spectators remained involved to the happenings of the ground throughout. All the five chukkas were played in presence of HM the Queen, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh and Dr. Andreas Offermann, the member of the Bentley board for sales and marketing .

Chris Mackenzie, later named as the Bentley Motors Most Valuable Player, gave Park Place a lead of 6-4, it looked as the chances for Twelve Oaks’ were over but the team had some other plans for themselves in the fifth chukka. A successful penalty was followed by some brilliant play from Chris Hyde, he found some space in a huddle of players creating a clear path to goal to level the scores.

The crowd was eager for the extra time to start, but Mackenzie put paid to that. He fired through a ball on the bell to guarantee that it was Park Place who has a upper hand in the game and won the match by 8-7.

The day concluded with the elegant parade of the championship winners from the neighboring British Driving Society Show. Both HM The Queen and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh who watched the parade from the Royal Box, spent time with the winner team and presented the trophy to the winner.
