The factory Bentley is ready to burst back into action at the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour after an all night rebuild.

The Continental GT3 machine suffered heavy right-side damage when it pitched into the outside wall at the exit to The Cutting when Andy Soucek was at the wheel in Practice 3.

Bentley saw the work completed at 4am before the car was rolled back into the garage beside the #10 stablemate.

“Considering the impact and the damage to suspension pick up points that was done; it’s a big thanks to the team and the local body shop,” M-Sport boss Malcolm Wilson told

“Everything on the #11 has gone through geometry checks and its ready to roll.

“Hopefully there will be no more issues today or tomorrow.

“It was a real team effort and we appreciate the support we’ve had since we arrived out here.

“This is an incredible circuit. From all my trips to Australia I’ve never been around Mount Panorama before but wow.

“I’m pleased that we’ve got this opportunity with Bentley. You hear a lot about Bathurst and when you see it you understand why.”

The #11 was immediately taken out for an installation lap at the start of final practice this morning.
