The Team

Elite Motorsport is an established Ginetta Junior Championship Race and Championship Winning Team

Team Profile

Elite Motorsport is a Norfolk based Ginetta specialist Championship racing team. They are the reigning Ginetta Junior Driver's Champions with James Hedley and the Ginetta Junior Winter Series Driver's Champions with James Taylor.

Elite Motorsport was established by Eddie Ives at the end of 2011 with the aim of designing, developing and manufacturing our purpose built race cars from their workshop base in Norfolk.

The aim is to bring professionalism, passion and dedication to everything we take part of. 

Elite Motorsport purchased their first Ginetta G40 in the closing stages of 2014 after a very successful year with our Elite Pulse race car.

Ginetta Junior Championship

From 2015 onwards the business has turned into a fully focused Ginetta Junior outfit and have established themselves as a front running team over the past 5 years.

Over the four seasons, the team has developed from winning the Rookie Championship and Winter Series with Harry King, to taking the overall Driver’s Championship title with Tom Gamble 2017, Adam Smalley 2018 and James Hedley in 2019.

2018 was a successful season, as they took the Ginetta Junior Championship title with Adam Smalley and right behind him was team mate Louis Foster (P2 Overall & P1 Rookie champion) before doubling up on Ginetta Junior Championship titles when James Hedley won the end of season Ginetta Junior Winter Series Championship at Brands Hatch.

2019 saw a even more successful year with James Hedley winning Ginetta Juniors with further poles from team mates Tom Emson and James Taylor.

Elite Motorsport still have various drives available in their expertly prepared Ginetta G40 Junior cars, in preparation for the 2021 Ginetta Junior Championship and 2020 Ginetta Junior Winter Series - as well as options for Track Hire and Testing.

Ginetta G55 Supercup (GT4)

2020 will see a third year in Ginetta G55 Supercup in the Pro Class.

Harry King finished third in the standings in 2018 but lead Elite to the championship title in 2019. The team's intention is to carry drivers from Ginetta Juniors up the ladder as they aspire to become future Touring Car and GT Racing Drivers.

The benefits of the championship running at the same meetings as the Ginetta Junior Championship mean the team is always fully on hand to provide their 'Elite' service to the new category - of which they aim to replicate their recent success seen in the Ginetta Junior Championship.

Testing and drives are available for the 2021 season. Please contact us for more information on availability and calendar times.
