His love for speed led him to become a racing cyclist. Later he turned to racing automobiles along with his friend, Moore Brabazon.In 1896 Rolls joined with other auto enthusiasts to break a law which forbade automobile travel at over 4mph (6.4km/hr). Their defiance led to a new speed limit which at 12 mph (19.3 km/hr) was 200% faster than had previously been allowed.In 1901 Rolls, having become an aeronaut, helped found the Aero Club. Two years later he entered an automobile sales venture in London selling expensive French cars. One day a friend introduced him to F. H. Royce who was just beginning to build quality automobiles. Royce, who had worked hard his entire life, had little in common with Rolls yet they still became friends. In 1904 they agreed that Royce would build cars and Rolls would sell them. Rolls Royce was born.Rolls continued to fly balloons when he wasn't demonstrating his soon to be famous products. His balloon flying led to aeroplane flying and in 1910 he oakley sunglasses one day sale received certificate number 2 from the Royal Aero Club (Royal as of that year).

He was eventually killed through the breaking of the tail plane of his machine in descending at a flying meeting at Bournemouth. The machine was a Wright biplane, but the design of the tail plane which, by the way, was an addition to the machine, and was not even sanctioned by the Wrights appears to have been carelessly executed, and the plane itself was faulty in construction. The breakage caused the machine to overturn, killing Rolls, who was piloting it.Charles S. Rolls (1877 1910)British engineer who joined with Henry Royce in 1905 to design and produce cars.

In April 1910 Rolls purchased the French Wright with a Wright Bariquand engine. It was not Rolls Royce powered because Royce, having collapsed at work in 1902, was yet to design a Rolls Royce aero engine.

Rolls was relieved Rolls Royce Limited of some duties in January 1910 to pursue aircraft interests.Rolls completed the first double crossing of the Channel England/France/England on 2 June 1910 in total flying time 95 1/2 minutes and is pictured below.
