Racing fans have something different to consider from Bentley: the all-new Bentley GT3-R. According to Wolfgang Durheimer of Bentley, the new vehicle is the “road-leading derivative of the Bentley GT3 racecar.”
For the first time in a long time, Bentley Motorsport grabbed a victory on American soil. The modern day Bentley Boys claimed the trophy in the race team’s ninth Pirelli World Challenge race of the year. Driver Guy Smith was behind the wheel of the GT3, a race-bred version of the iconic Continental GT, powered by a 4.0 liter, twin-turbo V8 engine. This GT3 takes the essence of the Continental GT and pushes it to the brink. More than 1000 kg of weight has been eliminated on this racecar, enabling it to land Bentley Motorsports back on top of the podium.
On his 40th birthday, Guy Smith was able to get on the pole and continue his quality driving – ending the event with the victory for Bentley Motorsport at the Miller Motorsport Park. The Dyson Racing Bentley Team not only took home the top spot in the race but finished with an extremely impressive first, second and third place standing. This marks the new era of Bentley racing as the team looks to build off of their recent success in the coming 2015 season. With this just being the first season back on the track for the one time legendary race team, more successes look to be in their headlights. Bentley
Motorsport was once the cornerstone of the racing world and they have high hopes of returning to the automotive glory that their brand was built upon.
