BMW return to British GT with Century Motorsport entering a pair of M4 GT4s. The team are due to take delivery of the brand new cars in February.

Century have run Ginetta G50 and G55s in both the GT3 and GT4 classes since they joined the British GT ranks in 2009.

Also announced was their first driver pairing, Ben Green and Ben Tuck. Both drivers raced in the GT3 class last season, with Tuck racing Century’s Ginetta at the end of last season and Green competing in the JRM Group Nissan GT-R at the season finale at Donington Park.

“I’m very excited to be signing up with Century Motorsport for my second years racing with the team. We had a lot of success in 2017 and I’m looking forward to carrying this on into 2018″ said Tuck. “I cannot wait to start racing the new BMW M4 GT4 in British GT as I feel the car has a lot of pace and will be quick in the growing GT4 class. It is sure to be a competitive year but I feel with mine and Ben’s ability and a great car underneath us we will be fighting for the top positions.”

BMW Motorsport Director, Jens Marquardt said “It‘s great seeing BMW race cars on the British GT Championship grid again. Century Motorsport are passionate racers with high ambitions. I’m sure that the BMW M4 GT4s will be in good hands.”

The 2018 British GT season kicks off at Oulton Park on March 31st.
