Ginetta’s 2014 Junior Scholarship competition will take place at Bedford Autodrome this October, giving wannabe teenage racers the opportunity to compete for a fully-funded season in next year’s Ginetta Junior Championship.
The competition, which will take place on 28/29/30 October 2013, will see the young racers be tested on their driving, media and fitness skills, with the on-track assessment seeing them take to the wheel of a Ginetta G40J alongside qualified instructors.
The winner, who will follow in the footsteps of previous winners Sennan Fielding, Oliver Basey-Fisher and Jamie Chadwick, will be given the use of a Ginetta G40J race car for the 2014 season, with their championship entry and official testing fees all paid for, a season supply of race tyres and race fuel, their test and race day insurance covered, the full support of a team to run the car and an official Ginetta championship race suit.
“Our Ginetta Junior Scholarship never fails to uncover raw racing talent from kids across the UK,” said Ginetta Chairman, Lawrence Tomlinson. “We have so many entrants who have what it takes to be a racing driver, that it’s extremely difficult to select just one winner. I am looking forward to seeing a high calibre of entrants once again.”
“The Ginetta Junior Scholarship has enabled me to fulfil my ambition of becoming a racing driver as well as gain great media exposure in the process,” added last year’s winner, Jamie Chadwick. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for young people to get into motorsport through a very exciting and testing event which is run to very professional standards.”
