Geoff Bushor, owner and operator of three-time championship-winning Team Pelfrey 1600, has formed Century Auto Racing to campaign for the 2018 F4 U.S. title. Bushor, who was exposed to the rapidly growing series in 2017 as an engineer, will field three cars under Century Auto Racing.
“After witnessing first-hand the potential of this group, I knew I wanted to become more involved,” said Bushor. “It will be our intention to carry on with Team Pelfrey 1600 and have Century Auto Racing operating with shared resources to continue the team’s prior successes. All the people involved agree that a separate brand was in everyone’s best interest to give the SCCA Pro Racing team a new and fresh image.”
Century Auto Racing started testing two cars in November, and anticipates that the third car will be delivered by the first official series test in January.
“The F4 U.S. Championship is a great platform and challenging series for Century Auto Racing to develop drivers in junior formula cars,” said Nick Andries, championship-winning driver coach for Team Pelfrey 1600. “Being part of the shared resources with Team Pelfrey 1600, I expect to continue the success into the F4 U.S. Championship. I am looking forward to joining Century Auto Racing in the 2018 campaign.”
Bushor’s long résumé includes working with a championship winning IndyCar team, engineering internationally with Team USA in the A1GP series and successfully running F1600 cars for the last five years for three championships, 39 wins and 133 podiums.
