Gus Burton is racing in the Porsche Carrera Cup
Gus Burton had an incredible year last year with Century in the BMW M4 GT4, winning the British GT 2021 Drivers Championship along with the Teams Championship. The 19 year old from Essex, started racing with Century in the Ginetta Supercup in 2020 where, after an impressive 5 wins and 16 podiums, he came 2nd place in the championship. Now piloting the new gen3 Porsche 911 GT3 Carrera Cup, Gus is keen to continue his success in this prestigious championship.
Team Principal, Nathan Freke, says, “It’s been a big desire of Century Motorsport to compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup for some years. With the new generation 992 it provided the perfect opportunity to enter the championship on an even platform with already established Carrera Cup teams. To have a champion driving the car gives us a very confident start to this new era for the team. Gus has proven himself over the last couple of years as a super-fast and level headed driver, and we’ve had a great testing programme and will be arriving at round 1 ready to fight for victories.”
The Porsche Carrera Cup kicks the season off at Donington Park on 23/24 April 2022.
