Ginetta Sweden Challenge gets a new partner and SEK 250,000 in prizes!

Gebhardt Nordic – part of the Gebhardt Intralogistics Group – enters as the main sponsor of the Scandinavian Ginetta Championship in 2024. The championship changes its name to the Gebhardt Ginetta GT5 Championship.

The competition and prizes

Five competition weekends with a total of 12 sub-competitions are planned and the participants have a lot to overcome.

The winner will receive a test in a Ginetta LMP3 car, worth close to SEK 100,000!

The second and third-placed drivers get the opportunity to test the Ginetta G56.

In addition, there will be cash prizes for the top finishers in the championship. All for a total value of approx. SEK 250,000!

Furthermore, the Ginetta drivers compete for an official National Championship.

The Ginetta class is entering its 18th season. It may very well be the best so far, says class promoter Leif Lindström. The collaboration with Ginetta Cars is developing and, in addition, getting a major international sponsor weighs extra heavily.

Live streaming will be developed with, among other things, a YouTube channel. Our competitions will also be shown on Ginetta TV in England. Something that has never happened before and is another part of lifting the championship to the next level.

Gebhardt Nordic

Gebhardt Nordic becomes a new, important partner for the Ginetta championship. The parent company Gebhardt Intralogistics Group is a global group with over 1000 employees. The company is known as an innovative player in internal logistics where it designs and manufactures automated systems.

Gebhardt’s history in racing is extensive and stretches back more than 50 years.

Stanley Dickens was the winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1989. Dickens has a long-standing association with the company and the Gebhardt team. He is also the initiator of the new agreement with Ginetta in Scandinavia.

For Gebhardt, racing is still as relevant as it was in the 80s when they manufactured their own cars and participated in the Sportwagens WC.

‘Motorsport has characterised the company since the 60s. For me personally, their team gave me the chance to drive and establish myself in the contexts I dreamed of throughout my upbringing. Ginetta serves as an important gateway for many young drivers. It felt natural for Gebhardt to invest in the class’, says Stanley Dickens.

In England, several young drivers have started their careers in Ginetta’s junior program. Most famous is McLaren’s F1 driver Lando Norris but also national British professionals such as British GT3 Champion Dan Harper, Dino Zamparelli and W series champion Jamie Chadwick started in the Ginetta G40 Junior.

Our Ginetta class has also been an important training ground with this year’s Porsche Carrera Cup champion Ola Nilsson as an example. Other Ginetta drivers who have progressed on the career ladder include Dennis Strandberg, Ted and Tobias Brink, Marcus Annervi and Hampus Rydman.

Another part of Ginetta’s recipe for success is the breadth of the competitors. From just 15 years old and up with a special class for those over 50. The Ginetta can provide ambitious drivers with an important foundation to progress in racing, but the type of car also suits those who want to compete for great experience and pleasure that comes from it.
