Zoe Wenham is to return to the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, and to Century Motorsport this season, joining Declan Jones in the team’s Ginetta G50 in the series.
With Dominic Evans as her regular co-driver Wenham finished second in the class championship in 2012 with seven podiums at the end of her first season in rear wheel drive cars after moving into the series from the VW Racing Cup.
“I’m extremely excited to be rejoining the GT4 grid with Century who took me to 2nd place in the championship last year,” said Wenham. “The competition won’t be easy but with quick team-mate Declan Jones on board for the season I’m hoping we can pull something really special out of the bag. A win eluded myself and Dominic last year so our target for this year is to be fast, smooth and consistent but also stay out of trouble.”
While Wenham has a year of British GT experienc to her name her new co-driver will be making his series debut this season after taking seven podiums, including two wins, in his own 2012 campaign in the G55 class of the Ginetta GT Supercup.
“This year should be a really good season teaming up with Zoe especially after her very strong 2012 season coming 2nd in the championship,” said Jones. “That shows me that she is a strong driver and lets me know that us two together can go for the British GT4 championship.”
“We are really pleased to have Zoe back in the team this year,” said team principal Nathan Freke. “She did a great job last year and with a full season under her belt she will be looking to hit the ground running. The pairing of Zoe and Declan will be a very strong one. We have some pre-season testing lined up so they will both have experience of driving together and we will be prepared in the best way for a full championship assault.”
