Elite Motorsport has revealed its six-car line-up for the 2021 Ginetta Junior Championship.
The team will field four returning drivers and two making their car racing debuts at the opening round of the championship in May.
“We have the ideal balance of second year drivers and rookies within our 2021 squad,” said team principal Eddie Ives.
“I’m very optimistic we can fight for verall, rookie and team honours again this year. It’s been enjoyable working with all our drivers during the winter and I can’t wait to share their success during the season.”
Elite Motorsport took Tom Lebbon to the title last season, scoring their fourth consecutive drivers’ title in the main championship. The squad hopes to continue that success in 2021.
Seb Hopkins and Tommy Pintos both spent 2020 racing with Elite Motorsport, finishing fifth and seventh respectively. Both drivers showed clear progress throughout the season, ending the year fighting at the front of the field and each taking a podium finish in the final two rounds of the season.
Will Jenkins joined the team mid-way through 2020 after spending the first part of the year running as a Privateer. He too continues with the team heading into 2021.
Joe Warhurst will switch to Elite Motorsport for his first full season in the championship. Warhurst ran in the final two rounds o the championship with Total Control Racing and picked up a best finish of 13th in the final race of the year.
Making the step up to car racing are karting graduates Josh Rowledge and Max Hall, both of whom made it to the finals of the Ginetta Junior Scholarship at the end of last year.
