Ginetta has confirmed the details for the 2019 Ginetta Junior Winter Championship.
The two day event will take place at Brands Hatch on the 9th and 10th of November, with the overall champion recieving 50% off entry to next year’s Ginetta Junior championship or Ginetta GT5 Challenge.
This will be the 12th running of the championship, which was first won by Josh Hill in 2008.
The event consists of two qualifying sessions and four races split equally across the two days. Additional testing is available the Friday before the event, and is bookable directly through Brands Hatch.
As well as overall prizes, the podium and rookie podium for each race will be issued trophies.
“The Ginetta Junior Winter Series provides the perfect opportunity for existing Junior drivers to get some more racing experience under their belt, and for prospective drivers for next year to get their first taste of Ginetta racing,” said Ginetta Motorsport Manager Ash Gallagher.
“Over the last few years, being crowned Winter Series champion has become a prestigious accolade and helped launch drivers into the following season. The championship also has a superb prize pot and allows drivers to end the year in style with some competitive racing on a great circuit.”
Four of the 11 drivers to have taken the title have gone on to win the main championship while most recent winner James Hedley leads the 2019 title fight heading into the final round of the season this weekend.
As well as the 50% entry fee into the 2020 championship, the overall championship will also receive two tickets to the Ginetta Awards Dinner to collect their trophy.
Second overall receives a £1500 parts credit at Ginetta Cars and third earns eight 2019 specification Ginetta Junior Championship tyres.
The top rookie – rookies classed as anyone who has competed in less than three Ginetta Junior race weekends – will take £1000 parts credit at Ginetta Cars, while the driver that gains the most positions over the four races, the “hard charger” will receive four 2019 specification Ginetta Junior Championship tyres.
Entry into the Winter Series is £795 + VAT.
