Murray set for British GT debut in Brands Hatch

BRITISH Formula Ford Champion and multiple Formula Ford Festival winner Niall Murray will join Century Motorsport this weekend to make his British GT debut at the famous Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit.

 One of the leading young racing drivers in Ireland at present, the Firhouse man has been a winner and champion in almost every car he’s driven in recent years.

Previously a winner in Ginetta Junior around the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit Murray is looking forward to making his Britis

Last year he re-wrote the history books, winning pretty much everything he entered, from the British Formula Ford Championship right through to taking the trio of Formula Ford Trophy race titles in an unprecedented sequence of dominance.

However the Irishman had a burning desire to have a taste of endurance racing, with his first outing at the Silverstone 24 Hours earlier this year in a Ginetta G50.

 Enjoying the event, Murray is now set for his next challenge, teaming up with former British GT4 Champions Century Motorsport for the final two rounds in one of Europe’s most popular GT Championships.

Niall will join forces with Danish driver Jacob Mathiassen, who has been competing in the full series this year. Having shown front-running pace on a number of occasions, many see this new line-up as a formidable force that could be set to spring a surprise at the end of two hours of racing next Sunday afternoon.

 Niall Murray said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to get this opportunity with Century Motorsport. I’ve wanted to do some GT racing for a long time and am very excited that finally the right deal has been put in place. Brands Hatch and Donington have been two of my most favourite and most successful circuits, so I’m really looking forward to getting on track on Saturday! Thanks to Nathan [Freke] and Paul [Grogan] from Century, all my sponsors and everybody else who made this happen”
