Gough and Wrigley Join Century in a Powerhouse Partnership for British GT

2023 British GT4 Team and Pro-Am Champions, Century Motorsport, are thrilled to announce the addition of two seasoned drivers, Ian Gough and Tom Wrigley to their lineup for the upcoming British GT Championship in the GT4 Pro-Am class.

The duo, who secured a pair of overall GT4 wins in 2023, en route to third in the standings and runner-up spot in GT4 Pro-Am, are making the switch Century in a fresh title attack for 2024.

“After narrowly missing out on the overall and Pro-Am championship title in 2023, Ian and I are delighted to be returning to the British GT Championship,” said Wrigley whose business, Tom Wrigley Performance, has plenty of experience with BMW having developed the fastest road going M4 in Europe. “Racing with Nathan and Century is going to be a great combination of all our BMW MSport experience.”

“Ian was, in my view, the fastest AM on the grid last year and with a season of experience under his belt we’re feeling really prepared to take our fight to the front more consistently with a car and environment we know incredibly well.”

As was the case last term, Gough and Wrigley’s car will feature prominent branding from The Lions Barber Collective. Shining a light on the men’s mental health awareness charity, they will once again be in the paddock providing free haircuts and race sim activation, as well as delivering a vital message.


“We’re so excited to be back in 2024, representing The Lions Barber Collective and our campaign ‘The Race to Save Lives’, racing to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention,” said Gough. “In 2023 we came so close to winning both GT4 titles and that is our goal for the season ahead”

“I already feel at home with the team” he added “I used to race with Nathan and Century twenty years ago in the British Kart championship and we’ve always stayed in touch. Century is without doubt the best team on the grid plus Tom has so much expertise with the BMW M4, we know we’ll be able to extract the most from each other every time we hit the track.”

Team Principal Nathan Freke says “It’s great to have Tom and Ian joining us in the BMW GT4. They were a stand out pairing last year and for sure will be contenders for this year.

Given the history Ian and the team have, it’s great to be reunited to work together after some 20 years.”

“Whilst I’ve never worked with Tom, we’ve raced against him for several seasons and know what a fierce competitor he is,” he adds, “I can’t wait to see them out in a Century car and see what we can achieve together!”

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 and, as part of an ongoing commitment to mental health, SRO is funding training for all teams. They will develop the skills to listen with empathy and without judgement, to ask the right questions, and to signpost someone when help is needed.
