Bentley Team HTP adds Seefried to 24H Nürburgring line up
Nordschleife expert added to Bentley Team HTP driver line up
Altendiez, Germany - Bentley Team HTP has further strengthened its driver line up for the 24 hours of the Nürburgring-Nordschleife with the addition of another experienced Nordschleife specialist. German endurance racer Marco Seefried (39) will drive a Bentley Continental GT3 of Bentley Team HTP in the 24h race. Seefried is considered as one of the most experienced and quickest drivers on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife and has been successful in a variety of cars on the world’s most demanding racetrack in the past.
During my first race with Bentley, the Continental GT3 impressed me with a strong turbocharged engine and great aerodynamics.
In preparation for his first 24-hour race in a Bentley, Seefried was already part of Bentley Team HTP at the second round of the VLN championship in late April.
“It’s great to start at the Nürburgring for Bentley Team HTP“, Seefried says. “The Bentley Continental GT3, the team and the drivers form a very good package. During my first race with Bentley, the Continental GT3 impressed me with a strong turbocharged engine and great aerodynamics. I’m really looking forward to the 24 hour race in less then two weeks.“
"The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring is one of the greatest challenges for us this season and I am delighted that we can add such an experienced driver like Marco to our team", says Bentley Team HTP team principal Norbert Brückner. "Marco is one of the fastest and most reliable drivers at the Nordschleife and an excellent addition to our team."
