New Bentley Continental GT3 to make British GT debut this year

Wednesday, January 09 2019

The new Bentley Continental GT3 will make its British GT debut in 2019 with Team Parker Racing, the same outfit with which the marque claimed the 2017 Drivers' title.

Team Parker will run at least one example of the new machine this season, continuing a relationship which has seen them win five races during the past three seasons. The partnership now continues with the new Continental GT3 which has been made available to customer teams for the first time this year.  

Whilst the driver line-up is yet to be announced, the team has confirmed that at least one of its new Continental GT3s will contest the championship this year, with scope for a second.

The news also ensures that GT3 models built by four different manufacturers - Aston Martin, BMW, Lamborghini and, of course, Bentley - will make their British GT debuts this season, while Mercedes-AMG is also confirmed.

It's an especially important year for Bentley, which is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding by W.O. Bentley in 1919.

Oulton Park hosts the opening rounds of the British GT Championship on Easter Monday. For more information, please call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
