A partnership that has been growing and evolving since 2008, Naim Audio and Bentley Motors share pride for both their British heritage and innovative engineering. When Team M-Sport Bentley announced that they would be returning to the track after their historic 6th victory at Le Mans in 2003, the partnership moved up a gear, with Naim Audio joining as an official GT3 sponsor. As the 2014 Blancpain Endurance Series comes to an explosive close, it’s time to look back at the exceptionally impressive debut season of our partners, Team-M Sport Bentley.
Their first full season of competitive racing in over a decade, Team M-Sport Bentley recruited only the best for their six-strong team of GT3 drivers. Long-standing Bentley Boy and Le Mans 24-Hours winner, Guy Smith, headed up the all-British first team, alongside experienced racers Steven Kane and Andy Meyrick. Continuing the partnership that lead Team Bentley to their 4th place debut in Abu Dhabi last year, Smith, Kane and Meyrick proved to be an exceptional team, taking the top of the podium no less than twice throughout the series.
The second Continental GT3 was driven by European driving team, Duncan Tappy, Antoine Leclerc and former F1-racer Jérôme D’Ambrosio, who makes his GT3 debut after several successful years of open-wheel racing.
