Bentley will defend its Intercontinental GT Challenge points lead over the remainder of the series, despite axing its factory assault with M-Sport back in June.
The British manufacturer has announced a new customer programme that will reunite the winning Bentley Team M-Sport crew of Jules Gounon, Maxim Soulet and Jordan Pepper from the Bathurst 12 Hours IGTC opener in February over the final three events of what is now a four-round series.
