Experiencing Bentley Activities
Owning a Bentley is an experience in itself, but the journey doesn’t have to end there if you don’t want it to. Bentley is an international company having established markets and dedicated offices in US, Europe, Middle East and South East Asia, and every year play host to a number of key events.
A Bentley is about the drive and experience and this is something that we recognise as unique to Bentley. We arrange a number of driving events with the main aim to allow customers the opportunity see and feel the cars for themselves.
Each of our dedicated offices develop a full itinerary of activities throughout the year to give customers a full insight into Bentley, its models and its successes.
The UK Team, for example, have been busy facilitating a ‘Team Bentley Speed 8 Racing Experience’ which was held in August, and was hosted at the Silverstone Racing Circuit. Around twenty Bentley customers joined Derek Bell, five times Le Mans winner, to experience first hand the Bentley EXP Speed 8 race car, conqueror of the 2003 Le Mans 24 hour race.
For those customers keen to improve their driving technique, there was an opportunity to take the wheel of one of the latest Bentley models putting it through its paces around the circuit, all under the expert guidance of a member of Bentley’s driving team.
Customers in the UK also got the opportunity to attend a special golf coaching session, which was held in August at the Buckingham Golf Club, and presented by top golfer, Colin Montgomerie. News on this years annual Golf Classic which took place on the 29th September, will also be available in the latest section of the Bentley Motors Website.
In North America, the US Team, have also been working closely with their dealers and between September and December will be hosting a number of driving led events to introduce the Continental GT Speed to current and future Bentley customers.
The events will blend the lifestyle of Bentley ownership with the opportunity to take a Bentley, of the guests’ choice, for an intimate test drive. The driving experience will then be extended into the evening, where they will work with selected partners to offer an exclusive evening as part of the experience.
