Bentley 3 litre

I photographed this car in the paddock at the VSCC SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in June 2008 where it took part in the  1 hour long Motor Racing Legends Pre-war Sports Car race.
Because it's not got the usual hallmark radiator casing it's not instantly recognisable, but it's a 1922 Bentley 3 litre. It's described in the programme of the event as a Bentley TT 3 litre, the 1922 TT in the Isle of Man being the first serious race in which Bentley took part, entering a team of 3 cars. It seems that this car wasn't one of the cars which took part in that race, but a replica of those cars. It was driven in the Donington Park race by Richard and Andrew Frankel.
