I can’t believe that the Bentley Continental GT3 will start its 500th race this weekend at the 24 Hours of Spa.

The Continental GT3 was first shown as a concept car at the Paris Motor Show in 2013.

“The Continental GT3 is the car that brought Bentley back to motorsport after an absence of a decade. In the four seasons of competition since, the car has earned a global fan base and has brought dozens of trophies home.”

“Standing on the podium at Blancpain GT Series at Silverstone in 2014 after our maiden win in only the car’s third race is a moment none of us will forget.

“We’ve had some great successes since that first victory; seeing Vince Abril and Maxi Buhk win Sprint Series Cup; watching Bentley Team Absolute take the GT Asia championship in the final race; supporting Team Parker Racing as they battle for the British GT Championship with dominant wins along the way; and now standing here at Spa-Francorchamps fighting for success through Bentley Team M-Sport and Bentley Team Abt.

“We’re a small team with big ambition, and to see what everyone has achieved so far is inspirational. We continue to grow and to learn and we’ll utilise our experience over the last years to make the next 500 races even more successful.”
