RICHMOND, RI, April 11, 2022 — The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences, one of America’s premier luxury resorts and sporting clubs in Rhode Island, and Bentley Motors Inc., responsible for Bentley Sales and Marketing in the Americas, hosted over 200 drivers throughout the weekend at the innovative Bentley Off-Road Driving Experience on-site at The Preserve.

Bentley Motors delivered four Bentley Bentayga to The Preserve for drivers to experience the SUVs off-road capabilities through a series of obstacles like steep inclines and declines, 200-foot elevation changes, and rock and log crawls. All across 2.2 miles trail set within The Preserve’s 3,500 acres.  After hundreds of laps around the track throughout the weekend, all of the drivers walked away with a once in a lifetime experience to remember.

Following the premier event, Bentley Motors and The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences are now exploring ways to further elevate the off-road driving experience and develop unique adventures for members and guests. “This is the first time that Bentley Motors has done anything like this in America,” said Chairman & Founder, Paul Mihailidies of The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences. “We are so proud that Bentley has chosen The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences for this incredible experience.”

In addition to the Off-Road Driving Experience, three electrified Flying Spur Hybrids including the limited edition Odyssean Edition made their New England debut at The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences. The introduction of the new Flying Spur Hybrid is the brand’s first electrified sedan and the most environmentally friendly Bentley to date.  Whether being chauffeur driven in EV Drive Mode throughout the property or for a spirited drive in the surrounding area, the Flying Spur Hybrid demonstrated that hybridization does not compromise luxury or performance. With an unperceivable blend between the internal combustion engine and electric motor, refined serenity is on offer regardless of driving mode or style.

The Preserve prides itself in aligning with the most top tier brands to ensure our members and guests the absolute best experience every time they visit.
