Bentley GT3 Storms to Victory at Silverstone

Bentley Team M-Sport writes a new piece of Bentley history at Silverstone (25th May 2014) with a stunning victory at the second round of the Blancpain Endurance Series, beating the likes of McLaren and Ferrari in the process. In only the second competition event for both the Continental GT3 and the new race team, the #7 car driven by Bentley Boys Guy Smith, Andy Meyrick and Steven Kane drove an astonishing race to take the chequered flag in first place.

Twenty minutes before the end of the exciting three hour race, Steve Kane managed to pass leader Andy Soucek in the #99 ART Grand Prix McLaren, commenting on the win: “Today has been epic. We didn’t get any real dry running done yesterday because of the weather, so we were relieved when we set good times in qualifying this morning. In the race, the car was fantastic, especially with how well it looked after its tyres. That gave me the grip and traction I needed to take the lead in to Brooklands, and after that we knew we could hold first place. Standing on the top step of the podium with Guy and Andy was a very, very special moment and I now know I can call myself a true Bentley Boy.”

The team now looks forward to the third round of the Blancpain Endurance Series, to be held at Paul Ricard in France on Saturday 28th June 2014.
