ABT to run Bentleys in 2016 ADAC GT Masters
After seven successful years with Audi, C.Abt Racing has decided to make a change and switch to Bentley.
ABT Sportsline and C.Abt Racing will join forces as the Bentley Team ABT to race three Bentley Continentals next season. The team will be managed by Christian Abt, former ADAC GT Masters champion, who has a lot of experience in the series. ABT Sportsline and C.Abt Racing have 16 race wins and six titles in their books in the Drivers’, Teams’ and Gentlemen standings so far.
Ready for the new challenge
“Just like our company, ABT can look back on a long and successful motor racing history. We have set ourselves ambitious goals in GT motor racing. That’s why we are delighted to welcome ABT Sportsline to the Bentley fold,” said Bentley Motorsport Director Brian Gush.
“Our connections with the various marques belonging to the Volkswagen Group, both in motor racing and in our day-to-day business, go back a long way and are deep-rooted. It is terrific that we can now expand that cooperation with the Bentley brand. The Continental GT3 has already shown its power on the track,” said ABT CEO Hans-Jurgen Abt.
