0

Bentley Motorsport has revealed that it will run four Continental GT3s in the SRO e-sports GT Series Charity Challenge. This Sunday (April 5), SRO will host a race at Monza in the Assetto Corsa Competizione game.

The race will see 50 GT3 cars battle it out, comprising 40 real racers and 10 sim racers, with four Continental GT3s fighting for race honors. In the build-up to the race, Bentley’s drivers have worked closely with Bentley Motorsport’s technical team to develop the car.

Paul Williams, Bentley’s director of motorsport, said: “While it is of course disappointing to have to postpone rounds of the 2020 racing season, the health and safety of everyone is paramount. So we have taken the skill set of our motorsport department and put them into action in the virtual world.

“Our drivers and technicians have been busy all week working on the setup of the virtual Continental GT3 and its lap time around Monza is now representative of the real world. It’s a one-hour race, so we think strategy could play a big role. We may not have the fastest outright lap time but we’re happy enough with our race pace.”
