24 CARS FOR 24 HOURS:  Portimão Circuit: 3 – 7th October 2024

To celebrate Bentley’s first ever win at Le Mans in 1924 we’re pulling in 72 Benjafield’s club members to team up and take 24 vintage Bentleys on a 24 hour test of endurance at the famous Algarve Circuit of Portimão.

This event will give viewers and drivers a real visceral sense of what it would have been like at Le Mans in 1924 – “Hold on to your seats, folks!” – and where else can you get a buzz like that except with Benjafield’s? As per the joyous event of the Le Mans 2023 race, the months of prep by the organisers will ensure that this weekend in Portugal will be both thrilling and heart-warming.

Pitting the tortoises against the hares for 24 hours on the 2.891 mile Portimão’s circuit will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. But participants aiming simply to win are missing the point because this exquisite race is all about being part of the team, just it was a hundred years ago. Serious levels of adrenaline and stamina, alongside healthy doses of competitive spirit, gritted-teeth and lashings of coffee will be needed to ensure that every car and team-mate makes it safely over the finish line.

As we all know, to experience a true 24 hour event in a vintage Bentley is a lifetime’s dream and we are incredibly fortunate to be able to take part. Any questions regarding this event please contact chairman@benjafields.com
