Bentley Chief relishing return to the track

Bentley's Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush, is hoping the team will compete strongly against the rest of the field this season.
Bentley's Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush, believes the work that has gone in to the new Bentley GT3 car will be enough to make them competitive.

Bentley have been working on a new 4.0-litre, V8 powered car along with their GT3 technical partners M-Sport Ltd, and plan on making a return to the track in the coming months.

The manufacturer are soon to begin a testing programme ahead its GT3 race debut, and Gush believes it has all the elements to compete with the rest of the field: “Motorsport is an integral part of Bentley, and the performance and endurance qualities of all of our road cars reflect this racing heritage,” he said.

“Not one single part of the GT3 has escaped our attention, and the result is a car that can compete with the field in terms of factors such as power, weight and aerodynamics.”

The new design contains a race-configured version of Bentley's 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, and more than 1000 kg of weight has been shed from their Continental GT road car version.
