Volkswagen-Owned Bentley Will Return To The Racetrack In '14

British car brand Bentley "will return to the racetrack with a GT car in '14 as Volkswagen, which owns the brand, restructures its GT involvement," according to Lüttgens & Wittemeier of MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com. Volkswagen "has already three of its brands competing in the FIA GT3 series," Porsche, Lamborghini and Audi. In '14 a fourth one will follow as Volkswagen "prepares the return of Bentley to the racetrack." Research & Development Head Wolfgang Dürheimer, who is charge of Volkwagen's motorsport activities, said, "We will present ourselves in GT racing with Bentley starting in 2014." Bentley's last motorsport involvement was in '03 when it won the 24 Hours of  Le Mans race. Dürheimer added, "The brand has celebrated numerous victories in motorsports, not only the overall victory in Le Mans in '03" (MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com, 10/30).
