Vincent Abril said he feels honored to have been selected by Bentley to represent the British manufacturer in Absolute Racing’s Pirelli World Challenge SprintX program, which kicks off next weekend at Virginia International Raceway.
The 2015 Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup champion was confirmed this week as part of the Chinese team’s lineup, which will see Abril team up with Adderly Fong in the No. 88 Bentley Continental GT3.
While set to remain as an integral part of Bentley Team M-Sport’s lineup in both the Sprint and Endurance Cups, Abril admits he jumped at the opportunity to expand his horizons by also racing overseas this year.
