The Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup and Ginetta Junior Championship will star on the British Touring Car Championship package until at least the end of 2016 after Ginetta and TOCA confirmed a new three year contract extension.
The Junior championship has been on the package since 2008, with the Supercup joining in its previous incarnation, the G50 Cup, a year later. A number of drivers have stepped up from the championships into the BTCC during that time, including 2010 G50 Cup champion Frank Wrathall and 2011 Supercup champion Adam Morgan.
“Getting the Supercup and Juniors on TOCA for three years is fantastic for Ginetta,” Ginetta chairmain Lawrence Tomlinson told ITV4. “We love being on the package, you get fantastic crowds and its wonderful for our teams and drivers. This package is the place to be, the TV coverage is fantastic and we’re over the moon to sign the contract.”
“Ginetta have been a great part of the package, and a lot of the BTCC grid are here after coming through Ginetta,” added BTCC Series Director Alan Gow. “They provide great race action, so why wouldn’t we want to continue with them?”
This follows the recent news that the Renault Clio Cup will also remain on the BTCC package until at least the end of the 2016 season.
