Racing Driver Gus Wins Debut GT Race

Racing Driver Gus B (Yr 12) collected 3 podiums in his debut professional races last weekend at Donington Park.

After months of delay to the season, it kicked off in style for Gus when he secured pole position in qualifying and went on to take the podium in all 3 races as well as securing the quickest lap in two races.

Gus says “I have made good use of lockdown and the postponement of the race season by working very hard with both my fitness and simulator training. With the excellent support of Century Motorsport and my driver coaches, I felt confident going into the weekend and it was particularly sweet to win the last of the three races live on ITV4 on Sunday”.

This is just the beginning of a professional race career for the young Felsted  Sixth Former who wishes to study motorsport engineering at university.

The GT4 SuperCup is a support race to the renowned British Touring Car Championship and Gus’ races will now run across seven weekends in a new condensed 2020 season.

You can catch up with Gus’ progress live on ITV4 this Sunday 9 August when he races in the distinctive racing green & yellow No.57 car in the GT4 SuperCup at 12:10 and 16:35 at Brands Hatch.
