Ginetta Junior Scholarship

Win the motorsport career opportunity of a lifetime. Entering the competition takes just five minutes and could change your life.

Launched in 2009, the Scholarship is awarded to one driver who shines in the eyes of Ginetta. The winning driver demonstrates not just speed, but also the professionalism needed to succeed in our sponsorship-backed G40.

The 2019 Ginetta Junior Scholar will win a free entry into the 2019 Ginetta Junior Championship, the use of a Ginetta Junior race car for the entirety of the season (including consumables) and an experienced Ginetta team to prepare the car throughout the season. Furthermore, insurance will be provided by Ginetta, in addition to a season supply of race tyres and fuel, as well as the all-important Ginetta race suit.

Taking place at Ginetta’s own race track - Blyton Park - from the 22 – 24 October 2018, the three day event features two qualification days, each with up to 30 drivers taking part in driving, fitness and media assessments, before a grand finale sees the 20 most promising drivers from the first two days invited back for the final.

The Ginetta Junior Scholarship has boosted the motorsport careers of Louise Richardson, Sennan Fielding, Oliver Basey-Fisher, Jamie Chadwick, Alex Sedgwick, Stuart Middleton, Daniel Harper, Adam Smalley and most recently, James Taylor. 

To be eligible for the 2018 event, competitors’ dates of birth must fall between 01/01/2003 and 21/03/2005 and they must not have previously competed in an MSA circuit car race. Entry can be completed online via the link below. The closing date for entries is 12 October 2018.

"After winning the Ginetta Junior Scholarship for 2015 I became the rookie vice-champion and the Winter Series champion in my first year, finished second to Will Tregurtha (my British GT teammate) in 2016 and then went on to become British GT4 Champion in 2017, earning a drive in the Daytona 24 Hours in the process. If it wasn’t for Ginetta I would never have started this motorsport journey and there’s no doubt about the fact that Ginetta got me to where I am today."
