Bentley Team Absolute Racing

In 2017, Bentley will once again compete in Pirelli World Challenge, continuing its successful partnership in North America with Bentley Team Absolute.

Pirelli World Challenge is an 11-event GT championship comprising five Sprint weekends of 45-minute, single-driver races (usually two races per weekend) and five SprintX rounds of 60 minutes, with driver changes (also two races per weekend).

The final event at Laguna Seca is the US round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge – an eight hour race which forms part of the championship alongside Australia’s Bathurst 12-Hour, Belgium’s Spa-24 Hour and Malaysia’s Sepang 12-Hour.

The series competes at renowned street circuits such as Long Beach, Calif., as well as America’s most historic and iconic race tracks including Mid-Ohio and Road America.
