The Ginetta Junior Championship will remain on the British Touring Car Championship support package until at least 2022, Ginetta has confirmed.
Ginetta has signed an extension with BTCC’s organising body, TOCA, securing the Ginetta Junior championship and GT4 SuperCup’s place on the support bill for another three years.
“Ginetta has been the biggest presence on the BTCC support bill for over a decade now, and we are delighted to extend our partnership with TOCA for a further three years,” said Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson.
“With the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge and Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup all in action across the season, we’re able to showcase to everyone the Ginetta calendar we offer drivers.
“Competing on the TOCA package offers our drivers unrivalled broadcast and print media coverage, as well as great exposure to thousands of fans at each of the race meetings for themselves, the teams and their sponsors.
“We are looking forward to seeing our championship continue to flourish on the TOCA package in 2020 and produce captivating racing for the trackside crowds and the live ITV4 television audiences.”
The Ginetta Junior championship has been part of the BTCC support bill since 2008. Over the 12 years, many drivers have progressed to other championships on the package, including British Formula 4, Porsche Carrera Cup, and the BTCC itself.
“I am delighted to have extended our partnership with Ginetta for a further three years,” said BTCC chief executive Alan Gow. “It’s entertaining and fiercely-fought support championships are a longstanding and valued fixture on the TOCA package.
“The career ladder from the Ginetta Junior Championship into the GT4 SuperCup and beyond is proven and unique in British motorsport, with a host of former Ginetta drivers now competing in the BTCC – it is fantastic to see.”
Ginetta has already confirmed its 2020 calendar, a nine-meeting season with the championship competing at all but one BTCC meeting.
