Bentley has re-affirmed its commitment to the Total 24 Hours of Spa, with five Continental GT3 set to contest this year's twice-around-the-clock race.
K-PAX Racing, CMR and Team Parker Racing will all tackle the 22-25 October event, which represents the marquee round for both GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS and Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli. All five cars will be nominated to score IGTC manufacturers' points for Bentley in the Ardennes.
The British brand will tweak its factory driver line-up for the race, with Maxime Soulet, Jules Gounon and Jordan Pepper sharing a car at K-PAX Racing so that that the trio can remain on equal points. Soulet and Gounon share with Rodrigo Baptista at GT World Challenge Europe events, while Pepper is usually paired with Andy Soucek and Alvaro Parente.
The news comes as part of Bentley's full-season commitment to Intercontinental GT Challenge, which will see the marque present at next months Indianapolis 8 Hour (2-4 October) and the season-ending Kyalami 9 Hour. K-Pax Racing will enter a car for Soulet, Gounon and Pepper at the American event, while Bentley has plans for a pair of Continental GT3s run by the M-Sport squad in South Africa.
