Century reveal first 2021 Ginetta Supercup signing

Liam Moakes 4th Jan, 2021

AFTER another successful year competing in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup, Century Motorsport are thrilled to announce their first driver signing for the one-make championship – 21-year-old Andy Spencer.

Spencer, from Surrey, has had success in several karting championships, along with taking part in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship and most recently he competed in the MG Trophy 160 and the MG Trophy 190 – finishing second and third overall respectively.

Spencer has not raced for more than a year and is keen to get back behind the wheel of a Ginetta. With the support and backing of a very successful team, there is no doubt Spencer will be fighting for podiums in no time for Fenny Compton-based Century.

Century Motorsport are looking forward to the 2021 season and are excited to be challenging for another title to add to their collection of successes and achievements.

The team still have selected seats available for the 2021 race season. Contact team owner Nathan Freke on 01295 770115 or email nathan@century-motorsport.com to discuss any opportunities.

Freke said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Andy to the team. Whilst Andy hasn’t raced competitively for a couple of years and even then that was in front-wheel drive, he impressed on his first test. He took to the Ginetta like a duck to water and turned out some very respectable lap times.

“With a nice pre-season test programme, we are excited for what the 2021 season will bring for Andy and Century.

“With our work philosophy and attention to detail, I firmly believe we offer an unparalleled service in the G55 Supercup. We help develop drivers on and off track, preparing them well for the next steps of their career.”

Spencer added: “I’m really looking forward to next season, fighting for good results, podiums and it goes without saying the overall championship.

“Getting behind the wheel of a Ginetta again, following the Ginetta Jnr scholarship I did, felt great. Being out of a seat for more than a year and now having the opportunity to be working with Century Motorsport and Nathan is fantastic. They are a multiple championship-winning team and are highly respected.

“2020 has been a challenging year in all aspects and, following our first test session at Donington Park, coupled with simulator testing, we ended the day with very respectful lap times.

“This has put us in a strong position for our next test before the season starts. There is certainly room for improvements – a couple of tenths here and there – but I know I’ve got it within me and the car felt good.

“I’m feeling more and more confident for 2021 and, with all the hard work that’s being done and going on behind the scenes in terms of sponsorship partners to make this all happen, I’d also like to thank my manager, Simon Downing of ADM (Absolute Driver Management), for all his support and for making this happen.”
