Ginetta’s 2013 Ginetta Junior Scholarship is fast approaching, and the Yorkshire marque only have a few spaces left for eager young racing drivers.
Taking place at Bedford Autodrome on 29th, 30th and 31st October, the Ginetta Junior Scholarship offers youngsters the chance to win a fully-funded season in the prestigious 2013 Ginetta Junior Championship, worth £40,000.
This year’s winner will be decided over two rounds – ‘qualification’ and ‘final’ – the first which will see drivers attend one of two assessment days (29/30 October) before 20 drivers will be invited to join Ginetta in the final (31 October) completely free of charge.
The three assessment rounds will include everything from a basic assessment of clutch, throttle, brake and steering control to full speed circuit driving. Ginetta will be looking for someone with ‘the overall racing package’ of speed, an ability to learn, professionalism, fitness and team work.
Previous winners include current Ginetta Junior Championship drivers Sennan Fielding and Oliver Basey-Fisher, with Fielding starring as one of the main contenders for the 2012 championship crown. General Manager of Ginetta, Simon Finnis said; “The Ginetta Junior Scholarship never fails to uncover raw racing talent from kids across the UK.
“Having seen previous winners Sennan Fielding and Oliver Basey-Fisher on the podium gives Ginetta a great sense of pride. We are dedicated to developing young talent and supporting drivers as they ascend the motorsport ladder, I am sure this year’s scholarship entrants will continue to impress.”
One of two Ginetta support races to the British Touring Car Championship, the Ginetta Junior Championship is dedicated to developing young driving talent and provides an ideal first step onto the racing career ladder, providing the perfect platform for drivers to cut their teeth in the high-octane world of motorsport.
Offering massive television exposure on ITV as well as unrivalled column inches in the national motoring press, the Ginetta Junior Championship is a genuine avenue into top level racing including Formula One and 24 Hours of Le Mans.
