Bentley had an outstanding lineup for 2015 in Europe, much of which is returning for 2016. Included on that veteran Continental GT3 list are two of Autosport magazine’s Top Ten Drivers List for 2015.
Coming in at number seven on the list is Bentley Boy Maxi Buhk. Bunk is a 22-year-old from Germany who has excelled in three years with Bentley. Last season he had some impressive stints during the Blancpain Sprint Series including a pair of wins and the overall Championship. Buhk drives the #8 Bentley in the Blancpain Endurance Series with Andy Soucek and Maxime Soulet.
Number two on Autosport’s list is Steven Kane, who drives Bentley’s second entry in the Blancpain Endurance Series. He is joined in car #7 by Guy Smith and Vincent Abril. Abril was Buhk’s co-driver in the Blancpain Sprint Series last season.
Kane is an accomplished veteran. Like Buhk, he was tapped to join Bentley’s new GT racing program on day one. He is known for his competitive streak and the team has leaned on his skills in the late stages of their races.
The duo will be in action with their teammates on March 9th and 10th at Paul Ricard for testing. Bentley Motorsport debuts with the rest of the Blancpain Endurance Series on April 23rd at Monza, Italy.
