Bentley will make its return to international sports car racing this December, in the Gulf 12 Hours at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina circuit.
The event, made up of two six-hour races, has been set for the debut of the new Bentley Continental GT3 race car developed in conjunction with rally specialist M-Sport.
The event will be the first international sports car start for a Bentley since its 2003 Le Mans 24 Hours victory with the Speed 8 coupé.
The race will be a prelude to a full campaign in the 2014 Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe, as the new racer is developed for sale to customers.
