Parker gets uprated Bentley
Title-winning British GT Championship squad Team Parker Racing will run at least one version of the second-generation Bentley Continental in the category this season, and may expand to two cars.
The team, which won the overall title with Seb Morris and Rick Parfitt in a Bentley Continental in 2017, has taken delivery of the uprated cars from builder M-sport. It will run one example in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup as well as the domestic campaign. No drivers have yet been signed for the UK assault.
Team boss Stuart Parker said: “We’ve had a fouryear relationship with Bentley and we are delighted to be able to field the new car. I’m impressed with it.
“M-sport has clearly taken all the lessons it learned from the first generation of the car and improved in those areas. I think it will be a competitive proposition for the season ahead, and we can’t wait to hit the circuit.
“We are still talking to drivers, but I think we will have a really strong chance with this new car. It’s also the 100th anniversary of Bentley, which will make this a special season.”
