Oh no, its from Autosport's sister magazine - it couldn't possibly have any truth in it. Wink Laughing

Seriously, this is really pointless. The average Bentley customer cares about extravagant style and comfort - not motorsport. Bentley's boom in demand has been because of their modern road cars - not motorsport activities. Thank the Continental GT. Motorsport works for some brands, but certainly not for others - this is one of them.

In a more in-depth interview with the Bentley/Bugatti CEO in Autocar magazine, he said that an LMP1 programme would be possible but a one-make championship like the Porsche Carrera Cup would be more likely.

I am skeptical about these rumours and weak suggestions about car makers entering LMP1. Porsche have announced their programme, but Jaguar, Toyota and now Bentley haven't given any official indication that they are doing it. Out of interest though, I would say that Bentley would be more likely to enter LMP1 than Jaguar. Bentley has vast resources from VAG, Jaguar has a smaller budget from Tata and Jaguar are just trying to launch new products to sell more cars. Let alone throwing away money in motorsport.
