News flash Main Race : Bentley takes second win in a row

28 June 2014

After winning the Silverstone round of the Blancpain Endurance Series, the #7 M-Sport Bentley won the third round of the Series at Le Castellet as well. At the end of the three-hour evening race the British machine had a mere 1.1 seconds advantage over the #98 ART Grand Prix McLaren. The Bentley trio Guy Smith, Andy Meyrick and Steven Kane now lead the Pro Cup driver standings as well.

The battle for third was decided after a frantic fratricidal battle between the two HTP Motorsport Mercedes. Eventually it was the #85 machine of Wolf-Afanasiev-Dusseldorp that ended up on the podium.

The Pro-Am Cup was won by the #12 TDS Racing BMW of Catsburg and Hassid, while the #458 GT Corse by Rinaldi Ferrari of Schmickler, Matschull and Ehret took its third win in as many races in the Gentlemen Trophy.
