Exciting Format Change For 2020 Ginetta Racing Drivers Club

16th January 2020 • Simon Paice

The Ginetta Racing Drivers Club will have a new two-class structure for 2020 as it shares a grid with the Ginetta G40 Cup.

Since its inception the GRDC has served as a platform for drivers to make their car-racing debuts in a welcoming, competitive and cost-effective environment, and that ethos will be continuing this year as the championship expands into a two-class format.

The main GRDC class will now be open to drivers of any experience level. This provides existing competitors with the opportunity to continue their driver development in the series, whilst also opening the door for new drivers to join the Ginetta family.

The series will continue to cater for novice competitors with a dedicated Rookie class. Entrants will continue to benefit from an all-inclusive package, with a first class service seeing their cars prepared and run by the experienced team at want2race.

The GRDC will be amalgamated onto the back of the G40 Cup grid at all five of the UK based events in support of the British GT Championship, with the drivers nominating four rounds to count towards their final championship points.

Ashley Gallagher – Ginetta Motorsport Manager: “We’re excited by the format change for the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club for 2020. We feel it’s a natural development for the series to welcome back drivers who want to continue competing in GRDC specification G40s.

 “With the GRDC rookie class, we will continue to offer drivers a first route into motorsport with an all-inclusive package that allows them to focus solely on their on-track progress, while want2race provide the highest quality service of car preparation and driver support.

“Combining the G40 Cup and GRDC will create a big grid with exciting racing throughout and all drivers having class trophies to compete for, while efficient use of the track time available means that drivers in both championships will see an increase in race time through the year.”
