Jordan Pepper, 19, has been chosen as one of the Bentley Boys for the 2016 ADAC GT3 Masters series.
Bentley Team ABT on Monday confirmed Pepper as one of a team of six drivers set to drive its three Continental GT3 cars. Jordan will chase overall and Junior honours alongside 43-year old defending ADAC GT3 Gentleman’s champion Andreas Weishaupt in the Number 9 Bentley Continental GT, while Le Mans winning Briton Guy Smith shares the No. 8 car with Fabian Hamprecht and Formula E racer Daniel Abt and Christer Jöns will drive the No. 7 machine.
“I’m really excited to make the change to the Factory Bentley Abt Team for 2016 after a very tough but promising first year in the 2015 ADAC GT Masters,” Jordan admitted. “I am thankful that the team has seen promise in me — this is my second year in GT Racing and I will have a better understanding of what to expect.”
The ADAC GT Masters will see 20 teams entering 34 supercars in races through Germany, Austria and the Netherlands starting at Oscherslieben next weekend 15-17 April. There the Bentley Boys will face GT3 racing rivals the likes of the new Audi R8, BMW M6, Corvette C7, Lamborghini Huracán, Mercedes-AMG GT, Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911s fielded by 20 teams in a 34-car grid.
