Bentley 3 Litre (1921-1929)

Walter Owen Bentley reckoned racing was the best way to promote the new company and the new car. However, the big and heavy Bentley 3 Litre didn’t suit well in Grand Prix racing. Instead it was perfect for endurance racing due to its strong and reliable engine. Bentley 3 Litre took its first win in the Le Mans 24 Hour race in 1924 driven by John Duff and Frank Clement, who participated as a private team driving their own car. Next year Bentley participated Le Mans with a factory team. In 1927 Bentley factory team drivers Sammy Davis and Dudley Benjafield took the second win for Bentley 3 Litre in Le Mans 24 Hour race.
