The Ginetta Junior championship will join the British GT support bill from 2023, the manufacturer has announced.
In a move aimed to bring all Ginetta race series under one package, the championship will join the Ginetta GT Academy and the Ginetta GT Championship for six British GT rounds next year. There will also be a stand-alone “G-Fest” event at Silverstone.
Ginetta will also run a number of GT4 entries in British GT.
“Extending our partnership with SRO Motorsports Group [which runs British GT] is all part of Lawrence Tomlinson’s vision to continue to develop our racing series and experience,” said Mike Simpson, head of motorsport at Ginetta.
“It is a great opportunity for us to continue to build our offering for drivers at all levels eith ambitions to become professional racers or to go endurance racing. It makes racing more efficient for teams and drivers and enables Ginetta to expand its renowned racing ladder philosophy to Europe and the USA, where SRO has a presence in GT Racing.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Alan Gow and TOCA for the support they have given Ginetta over many years.”
The Ginetta Junior championship has been part of the TOCA package supporting the British Touring Car Championship since 2008.
BTCC boss Alan Gow said TOCA will be evaluating which championships will replace the Ginetta series at BTCC events.
“We have had a long standings and highly successful partnership with Ginetta and we wish them every success in the future,” he said. “TOCA will announce plans in due course as to which series’ will join the UK’s highest profile motorsport package from the 2023 season onwards.”
With British GT, Ginetta Juniors will visit five UK circuits, Oulton Park, Silverstone, Donington Park, Snetterton and Brands Hatch.
