Win a ride in a Bentley Speed 8 at the 60th anniversary meeting
The Bentley Drivers Club has teamed up with Octane to offer one lucky individual the chance to have a ride in the Bentley Speed 8 at Silverstone this August...
To celebrate 60 years of racing at Silverstone, the Bentley Drivers Club is offering one lucky Octane reader a ride in a Le Mans-winning Bentley Speed 8 when it is demonstrated during the BDC meeting on Saturday, August 8.

A star driver will be at the wheel and with 600bhp at his disposal the winner is guaranteed an exciting ride! This car is the actual 2003 Le Mans winner, driven by Rinaldo Capello, Tom Kristensen and Guy Smith, which with its sister Speed 8 gave Bentley a one-two victory that year.

The nature of the car means that there are certain restrictions relating to height ideally no more than 5ft 8in tall and physical fitness, but in the event of a problem the winner will be free to nominate a (very) good friend to take their place.

As described in the August issue of Octane, the Bentley Drivers Club has been racing at Silverstone since 1949 and is holding a special 60th Anniversary Meeting on August 8/9. Bentleys of every era will be on track over the weekend and theres a special handicap race in which vintage 3 Litres can compete against modern Turbo Rs! For more information, see www.bdcl.org.

To enter the competition, entries must be received by Sunday, July 26 and please remember to supply a contact telephone number so that the loan of a race suit and helmet can be arranged.

What year did the Bentley Speed 8 win the Le Mans 24 Hours?


ANSWER: 2003
