Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup
BRDC qualifying championship with clear progression into global GT4 racingThe Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is a two-class race series which features Ginetta G55 GT4 sports cars. The 2015 season will be the fifth running of the Michelin Ginetta GT 4 SuperCup, but it will be the first year in which the field is split into a Pro-Am format.
The Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is Ginetta’s flagship championship featuring the Ginetta G55 GT4 car. Offering unrivalled exposure for drivers, teams and sponsors, the series is now entering its third year as a BRDC qualifying championship, with a number of drivers both past and present having already been named Rising Stars and SuperStars.
For the ambitious racer, the championship provides the ideal ‘next step’ from competition behind the wheel of a Ginetta G40, whilst the car itself is eligible for a number of International GT races and the perfect training ground for the Ginetta G55 GT3 car and Ginetta-Nissan LMP3.
In 2015, the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup will feature both Professional and Amateur classes – both of which will have their own points structure and prize giving - designed to ensure racers with time-consuming workloads are not at a disadvantage to those career racers who can test and train throughout the week.
Class entry will be based on competitors’ previous racing experience and results, and provides an interim step for ambitious Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge and Ginetta Racing Drivers Club competitors, looking for progression to the next level of motorsport.
