The first BENTLEY competed in the first 24 Heures du Mans in 1923. It was a 3-litre and it finished fifth, piloted by J.F. DUFF and F.C. CLEMENT. The years 1927 to 1930 were to see the supremacy of the BENTLEY at 24 Heures du Mans, with 3, 4.5 and 6.5 Litre cars, all of them without compressors. The HELLER model proposed is a 4.5 Litres car with a compressor, the one which the pilot Sir Henry BIRKIN had built against the advice of W.O. BENTLEY for the 24 Heures du Mans in 1930. After a promising beginning, these 4.5 L had to abandon the victory to W. BARNATO's BENTLEY 6.5 L. The N°8 BENTLEY 4.5 L had to give up after the 144th lap. As for BIRKIN's N°3, all it could do before stopping was to break a record for one lap, with a speed of 144.342 kph. This car's only claim to glory was finish second at Grand Prix de L'Automobile Club de France at PAU in 1930. Two models of this legendary car are still in existence at present, one of them in England and the other in the United States.
