The new Bentley Continental GT3 race car will make its global debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, while headlining the brand’s presence at this year’s event.

Joining the Continental GT3 will be the two road-going members of the Continental family, the GT Speed Coupe and the GT Speed Convertible. Both production Continental models will be making the trek up the famous Goodwood hill climb, with four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen behind the wheel of the coupe and five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell MBE in the convertible.
