One lucky young racing driver can win a fully-funded season in the 2012 Ginetta Junior Ireland Championship thanks to The Race 2 Race, a prize worth over €20,000.

The competition will run using the same format as the established Race 2 Race search for an Irish Touring Car Driver, with a one day event taking place on 28th January 2013 at karting tracks throughout Ireland, the tracks to be confirmed. The winner will be run in the championship by Murray Motorsport, the team who took Niall Murray to the title in 2010.

General Manager of The Race 2 Race, Barry Rabbitt said: “The Ginetta Junior championship helps to uncover raw racing talent from kids all across Ireland. We are dedicated to developing young talent and supporting drivers as they ascend the motorsport ladder, I am sure this year's Race 2 Race entrants will continue to impress.”

Ginetta Junior Ireland Championship Principal Ann Stevens added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young drivers to enter our class. Ginetta are very good to us by giving us some fantastic prizes for our eventual champion such as a test with a British Touring Car Team, but this opportunity gives someone who may not be able to afford to compete in a full season the chance to compete at the front for just €150!”

Entry is a one off fee of €150.00 and offered on a first come first served basis. Entry tickets can be bought online at
