Testing starts in earnest for Century
3:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in Local
MOTORSPORT: Wyre Forest’s Century Motorsport team look set to start an early winter testing programme with their Ginetta G55 when they take to the track for the Britcar Donington Night Race on Saturday.
The two-hour night race will see one of the team’s latest signings, Tom Oliphant, join team principal Nathan Freke at the Leicestershire circuit.
Oliphant is a recent newcomer to Ginetta racing, taking in the Rockingham and Silverstone rounds of the Ginetta GT Supercup towards the end of this season, which led to his announcement to join the team for a full campaign in 2014 In contrast, Freke is a very accomplished GT racer fresh from a two hour British GT4 race victory at the same circuit some three weeks ago with co-driver Declan Jones.
“I’m really looking forward to racing with Tom on this event.” Freke said.
“He’s been totally converted to this type of racing from single seaters, but this will be his first endurance event with a second driver, making it a great new challenge for him.
