Bentley Parade Lap Le Mans 2019
The world’s greatest motorsport event, the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend hosted a series of celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of Bentley Motors, the world’s most sought-after luxury car brand.
The naming of a street after the renowned Bentley Boys and a global first for the all-new Flying Spur were the highlights of four days that emphasised the important role that Le Mans has played in the British marque’s history.
Motorsport has been at the heart of Bentley throughout its first 100 years - the brand made its Le Mans debut just two years after its foundation.
To mark this close association, the City of Le Mans has renamed a street ‘Rue des Bentley Boys’ in honour of the young racers who won five Le Mans 24-hour races between 1924 and 1930, and their successors who triumphed in 2003.
