Steve Fresle made his Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup debut at Brands Hatch last weekend and walked away from the final rounds of the season with a full set of ‘AM class’ trophies.
Fresle joined the grid for the first time with Century Motorsport, having competed with the team in three Britcar outings this season.
As well as joining the grid for “a bit of fun”, Fresle made his debut on the BTCC package hoping to raise vital awareness and donations for his local charity Julia’s House Hospice in Dorset.
The weekend proved to be a steep learning curve for Fresle, particularly with the weather conditions changing every time the Supercup field took to the track.
Consistently improving over the weekend though, Fresle took third in class in the opening race and second in race two, before going one step higher in race three for the class victory in twelfth overall.
“We came here to raise some money for a very good cause, Julia’s House Hospice, and to have a bit of fun as well,” said Fresle.
“The aim of the game is to keep improving and with Century’s help, I’ve managed to do that. We’ve ended up with a full complement of trophies, a first, second and third, it’s been really good fun and I don’t think I could be much happier.”
“It’s been Steve’s first weekend in this kind of sprint race environment, so he’s had a lot to learn and did a great job,” added Century team principal Nathan Freke.
“He was steady throughout, making good progress over the course of the weekend and after getting a couple of trophies on Saturday, in his first session in the dry he got the class win in race three so we’re very happy for him.”
