Bentley History

1922 Bentley 3 Liter

Share on:

W.O. Bentley's products had been available only to the general public for little more than three years when English sportsman W.D. Hawkes decided to enter this one in the 1922 Indianapolis 500. Up against a field comprised almost entirely of 100-percent-racing cars, Hawkes' Bentley was little more than a road-going sports car with only the mudguards and headlights removed in order for it to be made race-worthy. Hawkes made only one brief pit stop on his way to a 13th place finish, finally completing the full 500 miles more than one and a half hours after the winner, in a time of six hours and 40 minutes, averaging 74.95 mph. As soon as the race ended, Hawkes and his mechanic, 'Bertie' Browning, had to immediately sail for home to prepare for the upcoming Tourist Trophy on the Isle of Man, an event much more suited for this combination.
