New Bentley Continental GT3 Primed for Monza Race Debut
Bentley’s new, second-generation Continental GT3 will make its competitive debut at Monza in Italy this weekend (April 20-22) when Bentley Team M-Sport begins the defence of its Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup Teams’ title.
Following an extensive testing schedule, the outfit’s two new-for-2018 Continental GT3s will line up at the historic grand prix circuit in northern Milan for the first of this season’s five European rounds.
Bentley Motorsport’s weekend activities begin on Thursday 19 April with a media and VIP guest event at Bentley’s Milan dealership. Friday then sees a ‘bronze’ test reserved for amateur drivers ahead of Saturday’s practice and pre-qualifying sessions. Qualifying and the race itself both take place on Sunday.
Live coverage of both qualifying and the race will be shown live on Blancpain GT Series’ website and Facebook page, as well as on TV across Europe.
In addition to the five Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup rounds in Europe, Bentley Team M-Sport will also campaign the new Continental GT3 in this year’s remaining Intercontinental GT Challenge events at Spa-Francorchamps, Suzuka and Laguna Seca.
