Weekend to remember for Heathcote
Weekend to remember for Heathcote

Nathan Heathcote had a debut weekend to remember in the Millers Oils GT4 Supercup debut at Brands Hatch.

The newcomer to the series secured two class victories in his first weekend racing on circuits at his home circuit of Brands Hatch.

Speaking after the weekend, a delighted Heathcote said: “I would definitely sum up my first weekend as a good one. Apart from race one, everything seemed to go every well.”

Heathcote was competitive from the off and considering he has never raced on a track, he had a lot to contend with in terms of the weather conditions as well a new car and set-up.

He added: “The weekend was very challenging as the track conditions were constantly changing but I managed to be consistent and get some good results

“Race three was very special to me as it’s my first ever victory in a Ginetta and first time in the wet.”

Reflecting on an excellent weekend at his home circuit Nathan was pleased, but the media saying he could move from AM class to pro class is a bit wide of the mark.

“To win two out of three races on my debut weekend is something I won’t forget! There is still a long way to go in the season but it’s the start I needed.

“I feel it would be unfair moving me into the pro class as it’s only been one race so far this season and Brands Hatch is the only Circuit I tested at prior to round one.”

Finally we asked Nathan just how good the car was that Century Motorsport prepared for him at the weekend.

He said: “The car was awesome all weekend! Century are a brilliant team to be involved with and I feel we will only get better as the season goes on.”
