2018 Season

The calendar, dates and everything you need to know about the new season


Elite Motorsport travels the short distance from its Shipdham near Thetford base to the Snetterton racetrack later this month (13-14 Aug) aiming to extend its Ginetta Junior Teams’ Championship lead.

The journey is in stark contrast to the near 1,000-mile gruelling trek to Knockhill in Scotland for the latest three races (30-31 Jul) which saw Elite drivers brilliantly claim nine podium place finishes between them.

William Macintyre heads to Norfolk still placed second in the overall standings and first in the Rookie title race after two further class wins in Scotland, William coming out on top of a thrilling multi-car scrap for third place overall in the final race. 

Joe Warhurst lies fourth, one place ahead of Aqil Alibhai, Joe just missing out on victory in Race 2 but recording two fastest race laps. Kanato Le remains third in the Rookie standings after recording a podium with McKenzie Douglass fifth. Shavran Shanmugavel claimed his best overall grid positions of the season for Races 1 and 2. 

Eddie Ives, Team Owner & Manager

"Everyone at Elite are looking forward to racing back home at Snetterton and continuing the battle for overall honours.

"As a team, we came away from the last event at Knockhill stronger than we had expected in terms of how we'd looked earlier in the weekend.

"Lots of strong points and finishes with each driver enjoying some highlights. The pace we showed in the Sunday races in Scotland were rapid and our aim is to continue that on 'home' soil."
