New Bentley Boys Steven Kane, Guy Smith and Andy Meyrick have driven two stints each so far, with Steven starting the race and Andy taking the six-hour chequered flag. Close battles with the Kessel Racing Ferrari and Gulf Racing McLaren have challenged the drivers, but all have driven with great skill and confidence in the new race package.

Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush, comments: “Six hours in and we’re very pleased with the result so far. Finishing the first half of the race in third position is testament to the hard work of the team and we’re now focussed on getting the car ready for the night race, which holds a totally different set of challenges as the track temperature drops.”
