More on Bentley in these books:
When Bentley Motors launched the first press images of the new Bentley Continental GT3 in September 2012, that meant a long 'run-up'. Their project of a coupé designed for racing was still at an early stage of maturity. In that infant stage it was merely sufficient for first driving tests to be carried out in order to obtain essential data for further development. When the decision was made to unveil the model at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, scheduled for July 12-14, 2013, a very tight timeframe was set for completion.
Bentley's Motorsport Director Brian Gush had to rely on off-site development. He was responsible for overseeing development and construction, which was to take place at facilities set up by Malcolm Wilson, specializing in motorsport, in Cumbria, Great Britain. Although the Goodwood Festival of Speed was an event where more or less but 'demonstration runs' were performed, the debutant had to show its potential in front of a demanding audience, interspersed with top-class experts and knowledgeable journalists.
