In just over 3 weeks time, the Century Motorsport team will be heading to the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, for their maiden entry in the exciting Gulf 12 hour race. The Warwickshire based team have entered the Marlin Hawk UAE Aston Martin GT4 and the BMW M4 GT4, with an impressive driver line up for this 10th edition of the Gulf 12 hours.
Aston Martin Vantage owner and GT Cup regular with Century since 2018, David Holloway will be joined by his teammate Bradley Ellis and former teammate Piers Johnson, to race in car number 15. Holloway has had great success with Century this year, getting podiums in both British GT and the GT cup, with Ellis as David’s partner throughout this season as his pro.
New to Century, Russian drivers and UAE residents Amir Feyzulin and Alex Bukh will be racing in car number 42. If you are interested in joining them, there is still one seat available for this team!
With many endurance races under their belt, Century are well prepared for this new challenge. The 12 hour race consists of two 6 hour stints in the car, with a 3 hour break in between where the cars are allowed to be worked on. The format “switches the race focus from reliability to strategy and pace” allowing the drivers to push their cars to the limit and making for a very exciting race!
The race starts on Saturday the 9th of January at 9:30am (5:30am UK time), with practice and qualifying taking place on Friday the 8th from 9:50am. It can be watched live on the Gulf 12 hour website and their YouTube channel.
Team Owner, Freke:
“We are really looking forward to our maiden Gulf 12 hour race. This has been on our radar for quite some time and for us to be entering a 2 car team is just great. We are looking forward to the challenge and hopefully picking up some trophies on the way!”
