Oliver Basey-Fisher has been named the 2012 Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner, the teenager earning himself a fully-funded season worth over £40,000 in the Ginetta Junior Championship.

Since May 2011, youngsters across the country have battled it out in a series of scholarship rounds for a place in the Grand Finale at Silverstone last weekend. The finalists had to impress Ginetta Championship Co-Ordinator Max Gregory and Managing Director Simon Finnis with a series of on track and off track tests.

To follow in the footsteps of 2011 winner Sennan Fielding, the youngsters needed to show an overall package to the judges, including good speed in the car, the ability to learn new skills and the ability to fit comfortably with a team environment. Oliver showed all these skills and subsequently won the prize.

Simon Finnis, managing director of Ginetta, said: “In the final test, Oliver showed he could deliver an outstanding performance, even in such a high pressure situation.”

Max Gregory, Championship Coordinator for Ginetta added: “As well as a strong track test, Oliver also impressed us with an excellent interview.
