Nathan FrekeMultiple British Champion racer Nathan Freke has concluded a deal to race a Jaguar XF 24 at the Nurburgring 24 Hour race held on the full Nordschleife circuit which is 13 miles in length. In terms of endurance racing the Nurburgring ranks 2nd behind Le Mans on the European scene and is unusual in that it allows 190 cars on the track at once. Nathan will be partnered by two other British drivers Colin White and Rob Carvell. After considering a number of offers to drive different cars Nathan decided that the unique Jaguar would be the best proposition in terms of car and team setup, Carvell Motorsport being very close to his own Century Motorsport business.

‘ I’m really excited about the 24 hour event. I’ve done it once before but it was in a slower car so I am excited to get in something more purposeful. The original plan was to use our own Ginetta but it was a lot of work to convert our car to GT4 spec and the deal with the Jaguar and Carvell Motorsport was very attractive. The prime objective is to finish the race and after that if a class win is possible then that would be a huge bonus’

Nathan will also be running a car in the British GT series at the same meeting so will have his work cut out to be team boss for Century Motorsport and drive in the most gruelling of 24 hour races.
