Bentley Racing with EXP2 at Brooklands in 1921

Bentley Racing is fun.

But it has to start somewhere.

And it starts here. The first Bentley to ever race.

It's chassis number EXP2. The second Bentley to ever be made.



In May 1921 Bentley achieved its first racing success with Frank Clement victorious at Brooklands driving EXP 2.

Quite a moment.

I'm looking forward to Bentley racing in Australia next month.

I was fortunate enough to be able to take a look at EXP2 at Crewe.



Here are some photos I took from the factory tour.



Here is the displayed info.



And the historic tax disk. Remember those?





There is a very special car parked next to it as well. More on that later.



Good luck Bentley Boys with all the racing this year.
