Bentley Team HTP has confirmed its driver lineup for the Blancpain Endurance Series with the addition of French GT specialist Mike Parisy.
The Gold-rated 30-year old will compete in the Bentley Continental GT3 in the five-round endurance series alongside Harold Primat and fellow countryman Vincent Abril.
“We are a small “French speaking clique“, which is good for our teamwork and a good starting point,” said Parisy.
“The car is very good, I have a good feeling with it and our tests were promising. The Bentley is fast and well balanced so I’m hoping we can have a successful season.”
Parisy will start his first season with Bentley Team HTP, but is not completely new to the team, as he competed with HTP Motorsport in the 2013 Baku World Challenge.
With Renaud Dufour engineering his car, Parisy won races in the FIA GT3 European Championship in 2010 and 2011.
“It is great to work with Renaud again. I started my career in GT racing with him, we know each other very well,” Parisy added.
Bentley Team HTP will also field two cars in the Blancpain Sprint Series, the finalized lineups will be announced shortly.
