Championship

Ginetta Junior Championship is the place for racers aged 14 – 17 years, which runs alongside the British Touring Car Championship

The championship is a natural progression route from kart racing as well as those wanting to get into motorsport without any previous experience. The cars are evenly matched putting the pressure on the drivers and the teams to perform.

Ginetta Junior Championship has evolved into one of the most subscribed, most well attended,most televised and ultimately, most prestigious junior car racing championship in the UK offering unrivaled opportunities for driver and sponsor exposure.

As the most popular support series to the British Touring Car Championship and with live coverage on ITV, the equalized car and single-make championship is designed to uphold Ginetta’s ethos of providing safe, controlled racing,whilst focusing on driver potential rather than racing budget.

Each weekend racing features plenty of track time, There is a 2 x 30 minute practise sessions, followed by a 15 minute qualifying session with two races at 5 weekends & 3 races at the other 5 weekends.

Supporting the BTCC, the single-make championship uses identical G40 race cars, featuring on weekend with 30000 trackside spectators, With at least one race per weekend live on ITV4, this offers the best showcase to drivers and sponsors.

The combination makes Ginetta Juniors the perfect grounding for young drivers wishing to progress up the motorsport ladder.
