HTP Motorsport – the team that in 2014 not only finished second in both Blancpain GT Series and Blancpain Sprint Series, but also had Blancpain Sprint Series drivers champion Maximilian Götz in its ranks – announced a new partnership with Bentley Motorsport and will be the first team to enter the successful British car in the Blancpain Sprint Series. The driver line-up will be confirmed in due course.
Brian Gush, Bentley Director of Motorsport: “HTP Motorsport is a racing organisation of the very highest calibre, with six championships and 20 race wins to their name, and so I am delighted that they are the latest team to show confidence in our Continental GT3 through partnering with us. Europe is where Bentley’s motorsport heritage is based, and this collaboration is the important next step in our plan to expand our GT3 programme. I am looking forward to working with HTP throughout 2015, and to seeing them race successfully in a new series for Bentley.”
Norbert Brückner, HTP Motorsport Team Principal: “2014 was a great year for us, but next year we are looking for more wins and more titles. We’re confident that the Bentley Continental GT3 is the key to that ambition, and I and the rest of the team are excited to get started with our new race cars. Bentley Team HTP will be a serious contender in 2015.”
