Bentley Race is a hot Australian guy who got his start in the adult industry as a genuine amateur. Back in 1999 a friend of Ben's, which is what his friends call him, took some nude photos of himself and Ben, and he put them online. The pictures got a lot of positive feedback, and he started adding more galleries and soon there were over 100 of them. At this point, Ben started to photograph and film some of his buddies, and when he got more experience both in front of and behind the camera, he launched Bentley Race. Nowadays it's a well-known amateur site that offers hot Australian and European guys in solo and hardcore action. It's been a while since we last reviewed the site, so let's freshen things up.
The performers are good-looking guys ranging from 18 and into their thirties. Some are straight, some are gay, and they're all horny, enjoy exposing themselves and having fun on camera. Most are hot amateurs from Australia, but Ben travels to Europe a lot and the U.S. every so often, and he always brings his camera, so there's a nice collection of European and American men, as well. There are lots of well-hung studs here with uncut cocks, and quite a few of the guys are straight and curious about filming porn or exploring action with another guy.
The models are a mix of nearly twinks to hairy hunks with lots of jock types. Many of them sport slim or athletic bodies, but others are quite muscular and most are smooth, although there are some hairy guys, too. In fact, two recent men are furry; one, a recent model named Karlo, has heavy black hair on his chest, abs and pits while another recent addition, a twink named Ethan Czar, is smooth, slim and very cute. Likewise, the guys are a mix of clean shaven and bearded. Ben has a penchant for athletic gear and skateboarders, so he often gets his models wearing shorts, swim suits, muscle tees, jockstraps or singlets along with knee-high athletic socks and sneakers. Many guys also hold skateboards or soccer balls or other sports gear.
While most of the guys are amateurs at the time they do their shoots for the site, many do repeat performances on the site, so they're like mini porn stars for Bentley Race. One sexy guy named Skippy Baxter went on to sign an exclusive contract with a major American studio, and you'll recognize other performers from the past like Harry Louis, Tate Ryder and Andy Lee.
There is an almost even split between solo and hardcore videos here. In the 411 solos the guys talk with Ben and play with their cocks; there's quite a bit of Fleshlight and dildo action, too. Ben has a fetish for outdoor nudity and often takes the guys to the roof of his building to shoot some photos. He also often gets in on some of the action with the guys sucking his cock or offering their asses to him, but it's all seems very spur of the moment. There are 398 duos and 17 threesomes and groups with the guys sucking and fucking in home and hotel settings. There are also a few kinky videos involving pissing and light bondage.
Bentley Race offers 840 exclusive, DRM-free videos. The newest are MP4s that can be downloaded and streamed. They play at 720x404 (good for mobiles) and 1280x720, and they're good amateur quality with decent lighting and sound; you can enlarge the vids to full screen without losing too much quality. However a few videos are only offered for mobiles, which is the smaller of the two sizes. All of the videos from 2011 forward are offered only in MP4 format; before that the sessions are offered in two sizes of WMV (720x404 and 540x303) and one MP4 (720x404), and the very oldest videos are WMVs only and offered at a small 320x240. Each scene includes a short description of the action and usually a story about how Ben met the model or other information about him.
There are also 1,142 picture sets, and these are standalone updates; in other words, the pics are not shot simultaneously while videos were being recorded. Most of these are solo sets that each contain between 40 and 100 photos. They're laid out in thumbnail galleries with the portrait and landscape pics separated into their own sections on the page. The newer photos are good amateur quality with a lot of close-ups and display at 750x1125, while older pics are smaller at 450x600. You can view the pictures in galleries, and you can also save them individually, but there's no hands-free slideshow option. Downloadable zip files are available.
The site also has some extras. First is the behind-the-scenes section with 445 videos showing Ben photographing the guys, talking to them or giving them direction. There's a members forum where you can talk directly to Ben and other members. There's a blog as well with previews, which is also accessible to non-members.
The Bentley Race FAQ says the site updates at least four times a week, but these updates aren't all full episodes; they can be any combination of videos, picture sets and behind-the-scenes videos. While the site is upfront that it "alternates between gallery and video updates", some clarification would be helpful. In November 2018 there were 17 updates added including four videos, five photo galleries and eight behind-the-scenes videos, which are mostly videos taken during the photo shoots. This is close to the same mix of pics, videos and behind-the-scenes vids there were on our last visit.
There's not a lot to dislike about this site. I do wish the oldest videos were remastered so they were a bit larger, and I also wish that Ben would make an MP4 version of each of the older videos offered only in WMV format so they'd be mobile compatible. I thought it was a bit odd that there are currently more behind-the-scenes updates being added than jack-off and hardcore videos combined. And last, I was a little disappointed that the models' pages don't have profiles or info about the guys, especially since there are great descriptions on each video page.
Bentley Race is an amateur site with a nice-sized collection of masturbation and gay sex videos and lots of picture sets starring hot guys with good-sized uncut cocks. The performers are mostly Australian amateurs, but you will also find some Europeans and Americans, as well as some famous porn stars and Ben himself. The site updates four times each week with a mix of behind-the-scenes videos, picture sets and new exclusive videos, and the newer vids are mobile compatible. The site has lots of personality with Ben talking about how the guys came to appear on his site. Bentley Race is a great place to see Aussie amateurs and remains one of my favorites.
