Bentley Motorsport has unveiled the thrilling new Continental GT3 race car, currently under development in preparation for the 2018 motorsport season. Lighter, more dynamic and even more powerful, it is closely based on the newly launched Continental GT. The team is aiming to build on this year's incredibly dramatic and exciting season, which included numerous race wins and podiums, claiming the title in the British GT and winning the Blancpain Endurance Series Cup in 2017.
Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush, reflects the buzz and growing air of expectation among Bentley Motorsport’s in-house engineering team at Crewe: “After four years of success with our Continental GT3, we’re very excited to reveal our second-generation car. It leaves no area or system untouched in search of even better performance, and early test results are promising.”
The new Continental GT3 will be the most exciting race car ever created by Bentley – because it’s based on the company’s most advanced road car. The stage is set. After the success of 2017, Bentley Motorsport is ready to unleash the new Continental GT3 across the globe in the upcoming motorsport season.
2018 Bentley Motorsport Season
For the upcoming season, Bentley Motorsport will assign a brace of breathtaking new Continental GT3 racers across Europe in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup again in 2018. The team will compete across the globe in the four-round Intercontinental GT Challenge. The new Continental GT3 will make its race debut at the opening round of the 2018 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup at Monza. What a day it promises to be.
The latest updates from the development programme of the new GT3 racer – and final confirmation of the 2018 driver line-up – will be announced very soon, so please check back for further updates.
