Bentley20150929Bentley Motorsport is heading to the Nürburgring for the final round of the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series with the PRO Cup Teams’ and PRO Cup Drivers’ championship-titles both within reach.

Sitting in second place in the PRO Cup Teams’ championship, Bentley Team M-Sport is looking to take a maximum score from either of its two Bentley Continental GT3s to close the nine-point gap and leapfrog the leader.

In addition, the drivers of the No. 7 Bentley Continental GT3 – Guy Smith56, Andy Meyrick and Steven Kane all from the United Kingdom – will be looking to win the PRO Cup Drivers’ championship.

With a 15-point deficit and five drivers/driver line-ups ahead of them in the table, the challenge is tough and the car must finish on the podium to have even a chance of lifting the series’ trophy.

“We go into the championship finale with two titles within reach, but we have a lot of work to do to win either,” said Bentley Director of Motorsport Brian Gush. “Even if we win the race, we are still dependent on our competitors’ results to enable us take the titles, so a lot of it is out of our hands. That means that we have to be focused and make sure that everything within our control is executed perfectly – we can’t afford to have any slip,” he added.
