Bentley 3 litre

On 5 April 2015 I showed a photograph of a Bentley 3 litre which had been rebuilt as a replica of one of the Bentleys that took part in the 1922 TT race in the Isle of Man and I said that it wasn't easy to recognise as a Bentley because it lacked the usual Bentley radiator casing. Here's a photograph I took at the SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2004 which shows what such cars usually look like.
It's a 1925 Bentley 3 litre and was driven in the Pre-War Sports Car Team Relay Race at this meeting by the owner Philip Strickland, and has some information about the history of the car.
