Burton to lead GT4 SuperCup bid

Stratford Editorial 9th Jan, 2020

MULTI championship-winning team Century Motorsport will be returning to the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup grid in 2020 as they mount a full championship attack in the shape of Ginetta Junior graduate Gus Burton.

Burton is no stranger to Ginetta, having previously competed in five races across the 2018 Ginetta Junior campaign, after which he then returned for a full season in 2019.

During his car-racing career, Burton has secured several wins, fastest laps and pole positions.

Fenny Compton-based Century Motorsport conducted a test at Donington Park with Burton – his first outing in the G55. Despite adverse weather conditions, he impressed straight away, settling with ease and ending the day with extremely fast pace.

An extensive winter test programme is in place to prepare Burton the best way possible for the one-make championship, which supports the British Touring Car Championship.

Century Motorsport has been competing in the Ginetta SuperCup for ten years now and has helped many drivers to further develop their skills and work their way up to higher level GT racing.

Team owner Nathan Freke said: “I’m delighted to get the opportunity to work with Gus. He was super-fast on the test we did at Donington Park and he will fit in with the team very well.

“He clearly has a very strong natural ability and we are looking forward to helping him to progress to the next level in his career. We are hungry to win the Pro championship in 2020 and Gus is a real contender for this.”

Burton said: “We are delighted to join Nathan and the Century team for next season’s SuperCup. Century’s professionalism was apparent on my recent test day and their successes in GT championships are testament to this.”
