Not sure this is the right place, but at the VSCC meeting at Silverstone on 13th April, Benjafields Racing Club is organising a Vintage Bentley only Race. This will see 40 vintage Bentleys in a two driver 50 minute race on the National Circuit, which will give the best opportunities to see the cars in action. All the cars are road registered and 3 Litre, 4 1/2 Litre 6 1/2 Litre and 8 Litre variants are entered. There will also be a small display of team and important racing Bentleys at the circuit. Tickets in advance from the VSCC website.

Have a weekend ticket and an overnight hotel is sorted. It's usually a cracking event and the Bentley race is a nice bonus.

The VSCC website is unnavigable.

I found the new site to the same. I understand there are 8 ERA's entered so far.
R3A,R4A,R5B,R7B, R10B, R12C, AJM1 & E type.

That will be worth seeing.

[QUOTE=Willmaz223;3895282.How many Bentleys are attending in Le Mans style race?[/QUOTE]

We have 41 vintage Bentleys entered, with a max of 40 being allowed to race........some of the cars are at Goodwood MM and some on Flying Scotsman so there may be one or two dropouts, but it should be comfortably the largest ever number of vintage Bentleys on a track together and a number unlikely ever to be exceeded
