Continental GT3 headlines Bentley display at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Bentley will reveal its new Continental GT3 race car, which will make its world debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013. The GT3 will take pride of place in Bentley’s impressive line up, joined by the Continental GT Speed, driven by four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen up the famous Goodwood hill-climb. Five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell MBE will pilot the fastest four-seat convertible in the world – the GT Speed Convertible.

Derek comments: “Coming back to Goodwood with Bentley is always a real honour, and this year I have the pleasure of driving a 616 bhp convertible up the infamous hill. 2013 is certain to be a great year for us at the Festival.”

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the famous Bentley 1-2 finish at Le Mans in 2003, the Bentley Speed 8 racers that won Le Mans 2003 will be piloted up the hill by the same pair of drivers – Guy Smith in Number 7 and David Brabham in Number 8.

The new Bentley show stand at Goodwood will feature the new luxury sedan the Bentley Flying Spur alongside the flagship Bentley Mulsanne and the Bentley Continental Speed and V8 models.
