Bentley is Back at Silverstone

The Bentley Drivers Club (BDC) will return to Silverstone for its 61st Annual Race Meeting on August 7 2010, continuing its unbroken run of annual BDC events at the circuit. This year the BDC will be celebrating 30 years of the Bentley Mulsanne.

“We hope to illustrate the full 30-year heritage of the Bentley Mulsanne at Silverstone on 7th August, from the earliest models of Mulsanne produced in 1980, through to the new Mulsanne being built at Crewe”, says Sebastian Welch, Competitions Captain of the BDC.

While the Bentley Mulsanne will be a strong theme of the meeting, there will be an enormous variety of Bentleys from all eras racing on the Silverstone circuit, with 10 races in total. Highlights will include the Le Mans-winning Bentley Speed 8 providing an exhilarating display of skill at high speed. The unique Bentley Handicap race, starting from pit lane. And the Bentley Scratch race, which sees cars ranging from a Vintage 3-Litre to the latest Continental GT competing for honours.

Meanwhile, the Bentley Parade invites all club members arriving with a Bentley, old or new, to take to the circuit.
