Bentley gets 3 seasoned racers to pilot Continental GT3 in comeback

Article by Anita Panait, on November 17, 2013

The Bentley Continental GT3 that will have its first comeback race at the Gulf 12 Hours will be piloted by three accomplished British sports car racers -- Guy Smith, Steven Kane and Andy Meyrick. The race – a two six-hour contest – will be held at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi on December 13, 2013. 

 Final preparations for the car’s first race are ongoing after an initial development work with an endurance test was completed. During the test, the car and drivers all performed strongly. The Continental GT3 continues its testing form of being both fast and extremely reliable. Bentley’s Director of Motorsport Brian Gush, following completion of development and endurance testing, said that they are now confident that the Continental GT3 is prepared for its first test race.

He remarked that while development work never stops, they are ready to race for the first time in Abu Dhabi. As a Bentley Boy since 2001, Guy Smith won the 2003 24 Hours of Le Mans in the Bentley Speed 8. He achieved second place in 2004 Le Mans with Audi. In 2005, Guy joined Dyson Racing in the United States, racing in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). He and Dyson claimed the ALMS titles in 2011, and finished second in 2012.
