90 years later

October 2014 this amazing event took place at the Portimao circuit (Portugal). Impressively, 20 of those pre-war cars finished the marathon which was held to commemorate Captain John Duff’s win at Le Mans in 1924. That race was also Bentley’s first win at Le Sarthe so the grid at Portimao featured a bevvy of cars ‘aligned to the stable of the eclectic Bentley Boys’, which meant a selection of the giant green cars from Cricklewood accompanied by Lagondas, an Aston Martin Ulster, Talbot 105, Chrysler 75, BMW 328 and a Triumph Dolomite 8C.
