Bentley bags Bolster Cup

For immediate release: March 18, 2018

Tim Llewellyn drove an immaculate race to claim Bolster Cup honours aboard ‘Penny’, his Bentley 3/8 Special. He seized the initiative on the opening tour and wasn’t headed to the flag despite a constant plume of oil smoke accompanying his progress. Nevertheless, he was chased all the way by the often-sideways Tom Walker in his Hispano-engined Amilcar. Patrick Blakeney-Edwards had been in contention for third aboard Jolyon Harrison’s Bentley special, but he dropped several places in the final stages. Justin Maeers came home third in his GN Parker following a storming drive.

The elated winner said: “It’s smoking more than it should. The engine hasn’t been bedded in yet, so it isn’t working as well as it should. I am very lucky, though. The car has been in the family for 60 years, and I have been driving it for 40 years. It’s such a pleasure to drive it here. Winning is a bonus.”

Tickets to the 2018 Festival of Speed (July 12-15) and the Goodwood Revival (September 7-9) are on sale at and at the Goodwood Ticket Office on 01243 755 055.
