I think the same way. Sports image for existing Bentley looks awkward. If they want to remember the good old days, when they did a really fast sports cars(before the Second World War), then they have to do something new and lighter then two tons. This GT3 R model reminds me of a sumo wrestler in skating costume.
But I don’t agree about the Supersports, judging by the results on other tracks I expect something about 8:10-8:20.

on pure handling, it will always be poor. slower than a FWD hatch. but Nurburgring has a ton of long fast straights. 8 minutes shouldn't be a problem.

I dont think it is. I think the 2010+ SuperSport will do under 8Mins, And a possibility of the V8 S and the W12 Speed, Hard to say, Bentley has sure gotten "Sporty" in the last 6 years, Which i dont think a Bentley should be.

I mean really? A 8000kg TRACK car? lol Although there has been an abundance of heavy track cars, Which is kinda nice, But i dont think its a good thing for Bentley.

But hey, The GT3 is the FASTEST Bentley in acceleration to dat, Its throwing down number the same as an F-Type, And almost as fast as a C6 ZO6!
