Experienced Formula Renault outfit Core Motorsport will move into the Ginetta Junior Championship for the first time next season.
The Essex-based outfit have competed in the BARC Formula Renault series in different guises since 2006, firstly with team principal Steve Durrant driving, then running other drivers.
This season, the team ran a single Renault for Piers Hickin and then Ash Crossey, the latter taking the team’s best finish of the season with seventh at the Silverstone finale.
The team plan to run two cars in the Junior championship alongside their existing Formula Renault entry, with Durrant feeling the Ginetta series is a perfect fit with the team’s focus on driver development.
“It’s a move we’ve been really excited about here at Core. We have always believed it is incredibly important to work personally with drivers, helping them improve through driver coaching and data analysis,” said Durrant.
“The Ginetta Junior championship offers drivers fantastic learning and progression opportunities, and is certainly a championship we have had our eye on for a few seasons.”
