The Ginetta Junior Championship is a one-make racing series based in the United Kingdom which gives aspiring racing drivers aged between 14 and 17 the chance to take their first steps up the motor racing ladder. From the 2010 season teams will use the Ginetta G40, having previously used the Ginetta G20.
The cars use sealed Ford Zetec 1.8-litre engines, and feature tubular steel chassis, fully integral FIA approved roll cages and fibre-glass shells which ensure safe, controlled racing.
The series is UK’s highest profile series for young drivers wanting to cut their teeth in the high-octane world of motorsport. Supporting the British Touring Car Championship and offering massive television exposure on ITV, the Ginetta Junior Championship is a genuine avenue into top level racing including Formula One and 24 Hours of Le Mans.
