nathan-freke-silverstone-preview-1.jpgHaving finished his 2015 season by with a podium at the final round of the British GT4 Championship at Donington Park, Nathan Freke was feeling confident coming into 2016, this time with a full time seat alongside Anna Walewska.

Freke and Walewska joined forces for 2016 through the support of Westons and the University of Bolton. Walewska enjoyed a mixed debut British GT4 season in 2015 and having already tasted victory at the 24 Hours of Dubai on her debut with Century Motorsport in January, it looked as if she would have all the ingredients required to be in a position to race at the front this season. So far, she has done just that. With a spring in her step and a fresh air of confidence, Freke and Walewksa put their #73 Ginetta G55 on pole position at the opening round in Brands Hatch, in what looked set to be the start of good things to come. Finishing that round in second position, the pair have gone on to fight at the front each weekend since, and Silverstone this weekend looks set to be no different.

Nathan needs no introduction. A multiple champion in various formulae during the years and a former McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year nominee, Freke has made a number of one-off appearances in the British GT4 Championship over the last couple of years and has rarely been off the podium on each occasion, which earmarked him as one of the pre-season championship favourites. Nathan has rarely been outside the top three in any session so far this season, with highlight performances at Brands Hatch and Rockingham, coming from well down the order to put their car into podium contention. Making no secret of his desire to win the championship’s longest race of the year, the GT4 battle should be entertaining to say the least this weekend.

Nathan Freke - #73 Century Motorsport Ginetta G55 GT4:
“I will be going into Silverstone extremely determined to make amends for Oulton Park. We struggled for pace really, so we have had a good think about setup and I think we will make good improvements this weekend. It’s our time to win…”

Anna Walewska - #73 Century Motorsport Ginetta G55 GT4:
“This season has been great so far. Nathan has been a fantastic co-driver and brought me on so well. Everyone at Century has been doing a fantastic job, and my confidence is building every time I get in the car, and I think I’ve shown that on track as well. We’ve had our ups and downs, but importantly we’ve always had the pace to win races, so I hope we can continue that this weekend also.”
