We’re really looking forward to sharing the new cars with colleagues, customers, visitors, and the media over the coming months,” said Bentley Heritage Collection Head Mike Sayer.

    Bentley will be based in the Aerodrome for the Members’ Meeting, and all media guests of the event are welcome to visit for refreshments and to see or drive the Heritage Collection cars.
