Bentley’s new Continental GT3 race car will make its world debut at upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013. The GT3 will be the highlight of Bentley’s line up, joining the Continental GT Speed, driven by four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen up the famous Goodwood hill-climb. Five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell MBE will pilot the fastest four-seat convertible in the world – the GT Speed Convertible.
“Coming back to Goodwood with Bentley is always a real honour, and this year I have the pleasure of driving a 616 bhp convertible up the infamous hill. 2013 is certain to be a great year for us at the Festival,” said Bell.
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the famous Bentley 1-2 finish at Le Mans in 2003, the Bentley Speed 8 racers that won Le Mans 2003 will be piloted up the hill by the same pair of drivers – Guy Smith in Number 7 and David Brabham in Number 8.
The new Bentley show stand at Goodwood will feature the new luxury sedan the Bentley Flying Spur alongside the flagship Bentley Mulsanne and the Bentley Continental Speed and V8 models.
