Race-winning Ginetta Junior team TJ Motorsport have pulled out of the championship ahead of the 2012 season after struggling to attract enough drivers for the new campaign.

TJ Motorsport have enjoyed success in the series during their six-year participation, particularly in the last couple of years. In 2010, Louise Richardson took two wins for the team on her way to third in the championship, while her team-mates Jody Fannin and Tom Howard also took victories. Last season, George Gamble took three wins on his way to third in the main championship, before going on to win the Ginetta Junior Winter Series, while Sennan Fielding also took a race win for the team.

The team had an option to run Gamble in 2012, but the Nottingham-based racer has instead left to join reigning champions Hillspeed. With the team struggling to acquire enough drivers to make a 2012 programme viable, they have decided to leave and look into other projects.

Team boss Trevor Griffiths told Motorsport News: “We've got a good association with Ginetta but we needed three cars to make it viable. We're geared up to do virtually anything on the British scene, if we get the right drivers with the right budgets.”
