Ginetta have confirmed that over 100 drivers have already been signed up to compete across the Yorkshire-based marque’s five one make Series with a month still to go before the season’s action begins.
Ginetta’s flagship championship, the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup, already has 19 full season entries confirmed with plenty more in late-stage discussions. Broadcast live on ITV4, it offers unrivalled exposure for drivers, teams and sponsors thanks to its place on the British Touring Car Championship support package.
The Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship is the UK’s longest running junior championship and takes pride of place on the BTCC bill. A proven training ground for professional racing drivers, the grid already boasts 17 entries.
Benefiting from ‘the best of both worlds’ the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge never fails to attract strong numbers thanks to its appearances on both the BTCC and the British GT package. The GT5 family is one of the biggest of all and currently has 25 new and existing drivers ready to compete in 2017.
Now in its fourth year, the all-inclusive Ginetta Racing Drivers Club package is designed specifically for the first-time racing driver. Ginetta is delighted to have brought 18 brand new competitors into the sport for 2017, and with many of this year’s entrants having already passed their ARDS tests it’s looking set to be another ultra-competitive year.
The natural progression for drivers who have recently discarded their ‘novice’ plates, the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club Plus is a popular choice amongst graduates from our year one GRDC series, although not exclusively. Entering its third year as part of the British GT support series, 24 drivers have already signed up across a mixture of full and part-season entries.
Ashley Gallagher, Ginetta Championships Manager; “We have the formula just right for all levels of driver grading and experience. We are delighted, once again, to exceed 100 drivers in our championships alone thanks to our unique proposition of being able to take a driver from their very first race all the way to the Le Mans 24 Hour.”
