Bentley have been testing at the Circuit Paul Ricard in Southern France. Eric Van De Poele crashes at 200 mph. Flips over guard rail and comes to rest by a concrete retaining wall.

Further investigation are being carried out, possibly related to a brake problem but will be confirmed hopefully.

Doesn't bode well. Similiar thing happened to Audi whilst carrying out endurance testing last year, Alboreto lost his life when a similar incident occured. Because of this James Weaver withdraw from the project.
