Bentley Returns To British GT With Team Parker Racing

The new Bentley Continental GT3 will make its British GT debut in 2019 with Team Parker Racing.

The team and Bentley’s first-generation GT3 model have already claimed five victories and the 2017 Drivers’ title together in a partnership that now extends into a fourth year following the introduction of the new Continental GT3, which is being made available to customers for the first time this season.

While driver announcements are yet to be made, Team Parker has confirmed that at least one and potentially two of its new Continental GT3s will contest this year’s British GT Championship.

It’s an important year for Bentley, as it celebrates the 100th anniversary of its founding by W.O. Bentley in 1919.

“We are delighted to continue our close working relationship with Bentley,” said team manager Stuart Parker. “The previous generation Continental GT3 was a proven winner and we have fantastic memories of taking the British GT title with Seb Morris and Rick Parfitt Jnr in 2017. We’re all over the moon to be a part of Bentley’s 100th anniversary year and are looking forward to securing podiums and race wins with the car.”

Team Parker has also confirmed that, in addition to British GT, one of its new Bentleys will also contest the 2019 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.
