Polo in the Valley: Bentley welcomed as new naming rights sponsor

THERE was no wiping the smile off Steve Mummery’s face as he drove a brand new Bentley convertible GTC V8 S through Kings Park talking about this year’s Polo in the Valley.

The Telethon chief executive said it was the first – and possibly last – time he had driven a $600,000 car.

“It feels magnificent… you can feel the rumble of the V8 with the roof down and I’m just dying to plant my foot,” Mr Mummery said.
