The Bentley Boys are returning to Pebble Beach

Bentley Boys - a group of young privileged racing British enthusiasts, fans from the '20s who opted for the English carmaker as a drug, alongside the booze and women, competing in motor racing via Europe. These boys owned a reputation quite notorious for playing strong, driving even stronger. These young fellows are responsible directly for establishing this brand as being a sports luxurious car builder, catering to the wealthy, speed... competing with all the best makes in our days.

Started by the great W.O. Bentley; the car firm was founded having just one purpose: 'make a fast car, a good car, the best in its class'. Thanks to our Bentley Boys, it includes 4 consecutive wins on the 24 Hours of Le Mans starting from 1927 up to 1930.

Peter Hageman from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance made this promise: 'Bentley racing class promises to be the most impressive collection of Bentley team cars ever assembled'.

'It will be a thrill for me to see these Bentleys, many in British racing green, pull onto the green at Pebble Beach' says Sandra Button - Concours Chairman. 'Raw power will be paired with raw beauty. Interestingly, both Bentley and Pebble Beach had their beginnings in 1919 and they share a devotion to excellence'.
