Bentley Motorsport has continued its strong start to the 2016 Blancpain GT Series race with a third-place finish in Monza, Italy. The #8 Continental GT3, of Andy Soucek, Maxime Soulet and latest Bentley Boy to join the team, Wolfgang Reip, took the car’s second podium of the year so far.

In the identical Bentley Team M-Sport sister car, drivers Guy Smith, Vince Abril and Steven Kane charged through the pack to make up for their issues in qualifying. After climbing 28 places, however, the car #7 Bentley Boys took a drive-through penalty and had to settle for 14th.

“The team did a fantastic job to get a podium this weekend” commented Bentley’s Director of Motorsport Brian Gush. “Monza isn’t the Continental GT3’s strongest track but the Bentley Boys put in consistent lap times and secured us some very valuable championship points.

“The next two rounds are in the UK and we hope to continue our podium success from Misano and Monza on our home turf.”

The Blancpain GT Series continues in two weeks at Brands Hatch with round two of the Sprint Series Cup.
