Bentley returns to The Mountain – Bathurst 2016!

14 Jan - Bentley at 2016 Bathurst 1

Bentley Team M-Sport returns to Mount Panorama in Australia next month to take on the Bathurst 12 Hours with two Continental GT3s in the team’s new 2016 livery.

Bentley Boys Guy Smith and Steven Kane will once again be joined on the mountain by Matt Bell, Andy Soucek, Maxime Soulet and welcome Aussie V8 star David Russell to their team.

The team’s livery has been updated for the 2016 racing season to incorporate more of the vibrant green that was introduced to Bentley’s colour palette last year and includes design elements from the Union Flag. - Bentley at 2016 Bathurst 2

“We return to Mount Panorama looking to get the podium result that we so narrowly missed out on last year,” said Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush. “As with any new event for the team, we went there looking to learn as much as we could so we could go back better in year two. Our line-up is very strong and David Russell’s experience here should help us immensely, so we’re feeling quietly confident.” - Bentley at 2016 Bathurst 3

David Russell has taken class victories in all of Bathurst’s endurance race formats including the 24-hour race in 2015, where he also set the fastest lap of the Mountain track ever completed by an Australian.

“Obviously, it’s a race of many challenges and it’s as easy to get caught up in an incident on the narrow mountain road. Keeping out of trouble – as always in endurance racing – is key to success here so our boys will be briefed to make bringing the cars back in one piece is their priority. - Bentley at 2016 Bathurst 4

“The Continental GT3s will look fantastic in their new colours as they come over the mountain. There really isn’t a better place to debut the new livery.”

The Bathurst 12 Hours takes place on Sunday 7 February and will be streamed live on the official website: – Follow the team on Twitter @BentleyRacing.
