The Ginetta Junior Championship is a big hit with drivers and fans alike. A permanent support race to the popular British Touring Car Championship, it is aimed at 14 to 17-year-olds.

The Ginetta Junior Championship is a natural progression from karting into car racing, but some drivers use it as their first taste of motor sport competition. Everybody uses the same 1800cc, rear-wheel drive Ginetta G40 putting the emphasis on the team and driver to unlock the optimum set up and speed from the car.

Drivers have plenty of track time: a 15-minute free practice session lets everyone gain some vital track knowledge prior to the 15-minute qualifying session. Then, two races at each race weekend let drivers polish their racecraft as they vie for position in equal machinery.

And it all takes place on a huge stage. As part of the BTCC package, the Ginetta Junior Championship boasts huge trackside crowds and at least one race per weekend is live on ITV4 giving massive exposure to drivers and sponsors.

Tight regulations ensure sealed engines, gearboxes and differentials meaning that major components cannot be modified.

It is down to the best driver and team combination – and that’s where we come in.
