Alex Stevenson and James Kellett are set to return to compete in the GT Cup in four races this season. This will be the third year the duo take part in the GT Cup with Century Motorsport, but this year brings something exciting; in the form of the all new Wheldrake Classic Cars Ginetta G56.
The Warwickshire based team are busy preparing for another year the GT Cup, which they have been taking part in, on and off with great success and many podiums since 2016.
Last year saw Stevenson and Kellett in their first full season together, with fantastic results. Achieving an impressive third place in the GTA Class and stepping on the podium six times throughout the season. This coming after their first year where they also came third which, considering they only competed in four rounds that year, was a great result!
This 2022 season will see them moving to the GTB Class GT Cup Championship, this along with the new more powerful G56, is giving them fresh determination on achieving even greater success this year.
Stevenson:“I’m delighted to be racing again with Century in the GT Cup this year and am looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the new car. This will be the third season that James and I have raced together and it’s going to be a busy one, with James also racing the new G56 in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup”.
Kellett: “Really looking forward to another year of GT Cup racing alongside Alex in the all new Wheldrake Ginetta G56 supercup. Coming off the back of a strong year last year I’m confident we can hit the ground running for the 2022 season. With the new G56 having a 500hp V8 powering it I can’t wait to get in the mix with some of the fastest cars on track.”
Team Principal Nathan Freke: “It’s great to be returning with Alex and James for their 3rd season with us in GT Cup. After last years success, its exciting to be debuting the new Ginetta G56 Supercup spec car and moving up a class.”
“Alex really made some huge steps forward in pace and race craft last year and James always performed well so we are looking forward to picking up where we left off and fighting for podiums straight from the go. The GT Cup fits really well for Alex. It’s the perfect blend of a professional championship but a very family feel to it and we always enjoy the weekends.”
The opening round of the GT Cup is taking place on the 9th-10th April at Donington Park.
