Bri­tish GT squad Cen­tury Mo­tor­sport tri­umphed on its 24hour rac­ing de­but, win­ning the GT4 class of the Dubai 24 Hours.

Cen­tury head Nathan Freke shared the team’s Ginetta G55 GT4 with Bri­tish GT team-mate Anna Walewska, Tom Oliphant and Alek­sander Sch­jer­pen. The crew qual­i­fied se­cond in class be­fore hit­ting the front dur­ing the race. They had to con­tend with a fuel tank is­sue and a brake pad fail­ure in the 18th hour, but held on to win and fin­ish 24th over­all.

“I’m de­lighted, and it’s even more spe­cial as it’s our first at­tempt at a 24-hour race,” said Freke. “The car ran fault­lessly, even though we had to drive hard to make up some lost time. It’s a dream come true.”

Ginetta also took se­cond in the class with Colin White, Matt Ni­coll-jones, Stephen Fresle and Hunter Ab­bott aboard the CWS G55 GT4. The se­cond Cen­tury car of Ol­lie Jack­son, David Pat­ti­son, Ruben Anakhasyan and Jake Rat­ten­bury fin­ished sev­enth in class af­ter a col­li­sion.
