Ginetta GT Supercup front-runners Century Motorsport have this week signed Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge GB champion James Birch to drive their Ginetta G55 in the 2013 Ginetta GT Supercup.
Birch has had a very successful career to date, racing in European Formula Vee, Formula Renault BARC and Radical UK before being crowned as Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge GB Champion in 2012. Now making his move to the Ginetta GT Supercup, James is confident he can continue this form to add another championship title to his racing CV. “Century Motorsport have provided me with a fantastic opportunity in the Ginetta GT Supercup. A challenge I’m really looking forward too, and determined to be competing for wins at the first meeting in Brands Hatch. I have been working hard along with the guys to get used to the car, and I can’t wait just to be back in the car again! It’s been an interesting learning curve so far, with the car being another new challenge from my previous racing experience. However, I feel that after a successful year in Porsches last year, I can transfer that knowledge into a successful year in Ginettas. Being such a competitive year ahead, it certainly won’t be easy, but I’m excited to make the step onto the TOCA package and continue to take my career further.”
Century Team Principal Nathan Freke is equally delighted to sign the young Buckinghamshire driver after some very encouraging pre-season testing. “I’m delighted to be working with James this year in the G55 Supercup. We have tested him twice and he was extremely fast in conditions that were very tricky. He has a great track record and understands what is required to win a championship – a very valuable asset. We are all looking forward to a very successful season and we want to be fighting for the title from the first round.”
Century Motorsport will be running a number of cars in the Ginetta GT Supercup in 2013 and offer one of the most competitive and cost effective packages on the market to provide drivers with a championship winning platform.
