Become A Racing Driver With Our Fixed-Cost Novice Series

12th December 2017 • Ruth Harrison-Davies

We realise that ‘fixed-cost’ and ‘motorsport’ are two things you might not expect to see together, but all that is about to change. Given Ginetta’s penchant for breaking new ground and having listened to feedback from our current drivers, we’ve decided to create a fixed-cost route into motorsport for first-time drivers.

Over the past few years, one of the main things we’ve learnt from our Ginetta Racing Drivers Club competitors is that they wanted to fully understand the costs associated with going racing prior to signing up. We get it. From the outside, motorsport can look like a confusing and incredibly expensive hobby, but it really doesn’t have to be.

At Ginetta HQ, we shout about our commitment to getting people into motorsport, so we’ve decided to create an arrive-and-drive option for our Ginetta Racing Drivers Club. A fixed cost of £18,490 (+ VAT and insurance), with payment spread over the course of the racing season, will get you your first year in motorsport.

A unique offering in the motorsport industry, our arrive and drive package will provide all the benefits of the British GT-supporting Ginetta Racing Drivers Club. We'll throw in preparation for the ARDS licence test, track days with tuition and factory support at every race day. We’ll even include transportation of the car to and from events and repair any light damage back at Ginetta HQ.

The arrive-and-drive format allows you to use one of our Ginetta G40 Club car for the 2018 season, taking away the up-front cost of a new car purchase and minimising the time commitment and effort required during the course of the season. Upon completing your debut year of racing, you have the opportunity to purchase a car to support a graduation into the G40 Cup.

For 2018, the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club has been overhauled to increase its accessibility for first-time drivers. In light of further feedback from graduates, we took the decision to switch to a one-day format for 2018 to take up as few diary pages as possible whilst still keep the eight-race series format. There will be a trio of pre-season training days featuring handling courses and technical training with a Sprint Challenge included on the third and final training day.
