Royce Lecture 8th March 2016
Director of Bentley Motor Sports
Brian Gush joined Bentley in 2000 and created the motorsport department alongside his Chassis and Powertrain road car responsibilities. The beautiful Speed 8 prototype went on to win Le Mans in 2003.
In September 2012, the Continental GT3 race car was unveiled. At that point, it was still a concept car. Since then, a team of Bentley engineers has been working behind closed doors, making the concept a reality. The result is a racing Bentley GT3 – the first Bentley racer for a decade.
During this lecture Mr Gush will describe the work and achievements of turning the Bentley Continental GT into a successful competition car.
