team. The M-Sport team ran one of Ford's factory WRC teams through this season. The Continental GT3 Concept Racer will be on display at the 2013 Autosport International in Birmingham. 

M-Sport will provide technical support and help develop the Continental GT3 for the rest of the year. It will create components for the car, work on the car's design and help with the project's organization. 

 “Joining forces with Bentley to help create the new Continental GT3 is a rare privilege. Bentley’s design and analysis work to-date has shown that the Continental GT road car can become an extremely competitive race car, and we are looking forward to capitalizing on our extensive competition car development experience and success to help Bentley realize its goals," said M-Sport Managing Director Malcolm Wilson

Bentley will build the racecars at its new motorsport department in Crewe, England, and the car will make its track debut in 2013. 

“Not only do we now have a world-beating operation in M-Sport as our new Technical Partner, but we have the honor of showing our Continental GT3 concept at Autosport International. The car continues to attract interest from around the globe, which is very encouraging as we progress the detail design," said Bentley Motorsport Director Brian Gush.
