The burgeoning GT3 formula, launched in 2006 as a platform for multi-marque modified production sportscars to compete, will be well represented, with Bentley bringing its Blancpain Endurance challenger, the Continental GT3, to Goodwood with works driver Andy Soucek at the wheel, going up against the Lexus RC-F GT3 and Festival favourite Anthony Reid in the Arrinera Hussarya GT3.
Joining them will be Ford and McLaren with examples of their entry-level, but no-less spectacular, GT4-class cars. Factory Ford Le Mans racer Billy Johnson will be armed with the Mustang GT4, while McLaren will be bringing its 570S GT4.
The GT head to head will form part of Sunday’s final timed shootout for the fastest cars during the weekend, which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports at 15:55.
