26 June 2017 - #bentley Motorsport took victory at the Blancpain GT Series Paul Ricard 1,000 km with its #8 Continental GT3 and drivers #andysoucek (ES), #maximesoulet (BE) and #vinceabril (MC), as #bentleyteamabsolute took a win and second place in the USA.

The six-hour Blancpain GT Series race took place from 18:00 until midnight on the world-famous track in the south of France and #bentley Team M-Sport once again ran its pair of Continental GT3s.

After qualifying in eighth position on a grid of more than 50 GT3 cars, the #8 Continental GT3 climbed steadily to the lead, where it ran for most of the race. With consistently quick lap times, impeccable pit stops and a reliable car, the team had what Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, #briangush has called a “perfect race”.

“It’s always great to take a race win but when you do it so cleanly it makes it all the more rewarding,” commented Gush. “It was a perfect race for the number eight crew, after many months of extremely hard work by the whole team. In the last two weeks, Bentleys have won both races in the UK, Europe and the USA, which is a testament to the car and the #people behind it. We must now retain our focus as we look ahead to the next race, which is the most challenging of the Blancpain season – the Spa 24 Hours.”
