Bentley Motorsport joins forces with HTP for 2015
Bentley Motorsport starts to build on the success of the Continental GT3’s debut season with the announcement of a new partnership with the successful HTP Motorsport team for 2015. Bentley Team HTP will run five cars across Europe for the 2015 season, introducing the Bentley Continental GT3 to new competitions including the ADAC GT Masters and Blancpain Sprint Series.
HTP Motorsport GmbH is a German team which was crowned European GT3 Team Champion in 2011 and 2012. 2013 proved to be another outstanding year, with the team winning the Total 24 Hours of Spa, the 1,000 km of Nürburgring and both the Blancpain Endurance Series drivers’ and runners-up titles.
The formidable pairing of the experience and talent of HTP Motorsport with the speed and reliability of the Continental GT3 is quantified by the results from 2014. While the Continental GT3 won two Blancpain Endurance Series rounds and finished second in both the Drivers’ and Teams’ Endurance Championships, HTP Motorsport claimed runners-up in the overall Blancpain GT Series standings. The combination of Bentley and HTP will see both affiliates targeting even better results for 2015.
Bentley Motorsport's complete 2015 schedule will be announced in January. Bentley Team HTP’s driver line-up for their five Continental GT3s will be confirmed in due course.
