Fenny Compton-based Century Motorsport, winner of the 2018 British GT Championship GT4 Teams and Drivers standings, has announced that Angus Fender and Andrew Gordon-Colebrooke will campaign one of its two BMW M4 GT4s in the 2019 season.
Both Fender and Gordon-Colebrooke have previous experience with Century Motorsport as both drivers contested the 2018 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup with the team. Angus Fender, who started his career in karts and competed in his first season in cars in 2017, finished fifth in the championship while Gordon-Colebrooke finished tenth. 26-year-old Gordon-Colebrooke also competed in the 2019 24H Dubai with Century Motorsport, finishing seventh in the GT4 class in the BMW M4 GT4 he shared with Nathan Freke, Tom Canning and JM Littman.
Both drivers are excited at the prospect of driving the BMW M4 GT4 in the British GT Championship.
“I’m absolutely over the moon to have signed with Century for the 2019 season,” said Gordon-Colebrooke. “The team proved last year just how strong they are and how quick the BMW is by taking both the Drivers’ and Teams’ title in GT4, and I have every confidence that we’ll be just as competitive this year.”
“I still pinch myself at night thinking it’s all a dream,” said Angus Fender, “Ten years ago, little eight-year-old me, who was just starting out in karting, wouldn’t believe what I’m doing now and it’s a real honour to be representing a marque such as BMW in British GT. Partnering with Andrew is great for us both; the fact we know each other and get along well is beneficial to the team and ourselves.”
The 2019 British GT Championship opens at Oulton Park over the weekend of April 20 – 22.
