Modern-day Bentley Boys Juha Kankkunen, Guy Smith and Eric van de Poele join Chairman and Chief Executive Wolfgang Dürheimer to lead all 170 competitors to the start of the legendary Nürburgring 24 Hour Race in a fleet of striking Bentley models.

The Bentley line-up, including the Continental GTC W12, Mulsanne, 630 bhp Continental Supersports and new Continental GT V8 form the official parade car fleet and are joined by a pair of Flying Spurs that provide a VIP shuttle service, in collaboration with the race organizers, throughout the grueling 24-hour race.

Mr Dürheimer comments

“Bentley is proud to help support this year’s Nürburgring event, one of the most punishing endurance tests on the motorsport calendar. As a regular visitor to the Nürburgring during the development of our cars and with a personal passion for driving the track, I am delighted that Bentley is here in a race environment this weekend. I’d like to wish all the drivers the very best of luck for the long race ahead.”
