Freke, who runs the successful Century Motorsport team in both British GT and the Ginetta GT4 Supercup, helped the car run as as high as sixth overall in the 71-car field before retiring when the differential broke late on.

Nathan Freke - #98 Austin-Healey 100/4:
“What a fantastic car, and what a great experience - I absolutely loved it. Nick got in touch out of the blue as he wanted to test a Ginetta with Century, then we got talking and he offered me this chance. Historic racing is a different mindset. You think twice about moves in traffic as you’re in a near-irreplaceable car, passing another near-irreplaceable one! I’d love to do more and I think Nick and I showed we can be quick considering we had the oldest car.”
