Bentley Motorsport has made its intentions clear, for the Total 24 hours of Spa, by adding six drivers and a further two cars to its usual roster, as it pursues the top prize in GT3 racing.

With it’s sight set firmly on Victory in Belgium, they will enter 4 Second-generation Bentley Continental GT3‘s. Running numbers 107, 108, 109 and 110,  the 100 prefix to celebrate Bentleys centenary. Cars 107 and 108 are to compete in both the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and the Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli, with Spa being the flagship event.

The crew for car #107 will see the continued partnership of Steven Kane, Jules Gounon and Jordan Pepper, who together have secured some very strong results internationally.

Car #108 is still awaiting a third driver, to join returning Bentley boys, Andy Soucek and Maxime Soulet, after the departure of Vincent Abril after four season with the team.

The third entry will pull in Seb Morris and Callum Macleod, both from Team Parker Racing, while Rodrigo Baptista joins from K-PAX Racing, after competing in the Blancpain GT World Challenge America.

And finally the fourth crew will bring together the hugely talented drivers, Markus Palttala, Alex Buncombe and Lucas Ordonez. With Palttala having won the title in 2015, and Buncombe taking the Blancpain Endurance Series title in 2015, this looks to be a very reliable and experienced combination.

Bentley want this prize, and they have been close before, when the Number 8 car of Soucek, Soulet and Abril lost out by just 11 seconds in 2017.  And if they are successful not only would it be a maiden win for Bentley, but the first by a British Brand in over Thirty years.
