BENTLEY AT THE JOCHPASS MEMORIAL & HISTORIC-RALLYE
(Munich, 09 October 2017) A total of nine Bentley teams competed with their historic cars in the world-renowned classics event between 5 and 8 October, including the Team ‘Blower’, a Mark V, S1 Flying Spur and two Bentley 4,5 Litre Le Mans.
More than 20,000 enthusiastic spectators were in attendance to admire the 190 classic cars on show. The entrants travelled from all over Germany and as far afield as Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Great Britain and the Netherlands.
The all-new Bentley Continental GT was also on display in Bad Hindelang. The third generation of the legendary grand tourer is designed, engineered and handcrafted in Great Britain, and combines the highest levels of attention to detail, automotive craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, said: “Bentley has a long and famous heritage and these classic models represent the DNA and spirit of the brand. Our appetite for competition is one of the reasons we go racing and our growing motorsport programme now successfully competes on four continents.”
The scenic rallye took the drivers on a course around the picturesque town of Bad Hindelang. The Oldtimer Memorial race ran a 7,9 kilometre route which covered an ascent of over 360 metres and 105 turns up the mountain.
Robert Engstler, Regional Director Europe at Bentley Motors, commented: “The Jochpass Memorial and Historic Rallye is the perfect occasion for Bentley Motors to celebrate our past and present.
