FEATS OF ENDURANCE
The original Bentley Boys were renowned for their victories in the gruelling 24-hour race at Le Mans, and today’s Bentley racing drivers are equally keen on endurance events around the world. The teams race the second-generation Continental GT3 – a car that combines the race-proven engine of its predecessor with the dynamic bodyshell of the road-going new Continental GT, leading to some incredible results.
2019 is Bentley’s Centenary, and looks set to be a particularly good year. At the time of writing, Jordan Pepper, Steven Kane and Jules Gournon had already won the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup Paul Ricard 1000km for Bentley Team M-Sport. Seb Morris and Rick Parfitt Jnr also won the opening round of the British GT Championship for customer racing team JRM. Across the Atlantic, Andy Soucek, Alvaro Parente, Maxime Soulet and Rodrigo Baptista scored a string of wins for K-PAX Racing in the Blancpain GT World Challenge America.
