BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT3 WINS GT OPEN AT SILVERSTONE

The #10 Bentley Continental GT3 of Jordan Racing has taken two podium results in International GT Open at Silverstone, as the team secured the class win in race two following a third-place result in the Pro-Am class in race one.

The Crewe-based team had a full garage of guests for the UK round of the International GT Open series and drivers Michael Meadows (GB) and Jordan Witt (GB) were keen to put on a good show.

In Saturday’s race one, after 70-minutes of wheel-to-wheel action, the #10 Bentley made a decisive move on the final lap to gain a place on the podium.

On Sunday, the team was keen to repeat its podium success. After qualifying in third in Pro-Am, the pair had the victory in reach. Thanks to impressive performances from both drivers, the team took the class win in front of Bentley’s home crowd.

“After winning the British-based GT Cup championship in 2016, Jordan Racing stepped up to GT Open, which is one of the top GT3 series in the world,” explained Bentley’s Director of Motorsport Brian Gush. “To be taking race wins in their first season of GT Open is testament to the strength of the team, the drivers and the Continental GT3.

“This latest win continues the Continental GT3’s summer of success, which includes victories for Bentley Team Absolute in both Asia and America; Team Parker Racing in British GT and Bentley Team M-Sport in the Blancpain GT Series.”

The Continental GT3 next races on home soil on 23/24 September at Donington Park in the final round of the British GT Series, where Team Parker Racing lead by 10.5 points. The International GT Open series then resumes on 30 September in Monza.
