Bentley Motorsport has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with luxury manufacturer Princess Yachts, which will see the two global brands partner together in exciting motorsport activities around the world.
The partnership brings together two British brands which epitomise performance, elegance and luxury, mixing cutting-edge technology with traditional craftsmanship and setting new standards within their industries.
Princess Yachts will join Bentley Motorsport’s other brand partners and the iconic luxury yacht manufacturer’s branding will be seen on the new 2017 livery for the Continental GT3s racing in the Blancpain GT Series in Europe, Pirelli World Challenge in the USA and China GT series in Asia.
In addition to branding, the partnership will include joint activities that bring the worlds of luxury yachts and exhilarating motor racing together, to deliver truly exceptional experiences to Princess and Bentley customers all across the world.
Kiran Haslam, marketing director for Princess Yachts, said: “The partnership has always been very real in the hearts and minds of our customers. Currently Princess customers engage with Bentley at most of our global events. The enthusiasm and excitement generated was incredible, and the opportunities for both Bentley and Princess to work together collaboratively has ignited a series of exciting activities that we intend to reveal in the coming months.”
“We first ran with the Princess Yachts branding on the Continental GT3 when we raced at Bathurst 12 Hours,” said Bentley’s director of motorsport, Brian Gush. “The logo was shown on TV on the side of the Bentleys for almost two hours of the 12-hour race, which we all agreed was a fantastic amount of air-time. The partnership went well and we were all keen to progress it further.”
