Donington, UK, 8th April 2014:
British-based Generation Bentley Racing today unveiled their 2014 Bentley Continental GT3 challenger and announced an additional entry into the Blancpain Endurance Series second round at Silverstone with BRDC Rising Star Jody Fannin.
Generation Bentley Racing, the first Official Bentley Racing Partner Team, showcased its striking blue, white and yellow livery to guests and media attending the British GT Championship Media Day at Donington Park. The car will be raced by Steve Tandy and James Appleby in the British GT Championship during the 2014 season.
Additional plans have also been confirmed to race in round two of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Silverstone on 23-25 May. Seasoned sports car driver and BRDC Rising Star Jody Fannin will join Tandy and Appleby in the Continental GT3.
Fannin was the 2012 British GT4 Champion which among many other successes, led him to be named a BRDC Rising Star in 2013. Commenting on the seat for Silverstone, he said: "It doesn’t get much better than racing a Bentley with its steeped racing heritage at Silverstone - the home of British Motorsport. I’m really looking forward to joining Generation Bentley Racing, and hopefully this will lead to more outings this season. Seeing the car in the flesh with its new livery today has really blown me away. I can’t wait to drive the car with Steve and James, and start working with the team."
