The winner of the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup will no longer receive a fully funded drive in the British Touring Car Championship, with the series organisers instead announcing a 'pounds for points' scheme for the 2012 season.

Last year's inaugural Ginetta GT Supercup saw eventual title winner Adam Morgan receive a funded drive in this year's BTCC. This season though, Ginetta are instead implementing their new scheme, which will see a prize fund of £100,000 given out.

The top ten G55 finishers in each championship race will be rewarded with £10 per point, which will get totalled up and handed out at the end of the season, with the G55 champion to also receive an additional £5,000 on top of his existing haul.

Double prize money will be up for grabs at the Knockhill and Croft rounds to entice crews into making the longer trips. In the G50 class meanwhile, the champion will receive the use of a Ginetta G55 for the 2013 season.

Ginetta GT Supercup Championship Coordinator Max Gregory said: “This year's prize fund will offer each competitor the chance to win something whilst still providing a substantial overall amount for the overall championship winner. The £100,000 prize pot is sure to give many teams the chance to recoup some of their costs during what is undoubtedly a difficult financial time for many involved in the sport.”
