Ginetta Juniors 2010: Where Are They Now?

Not Forgetting …….

Jake Giddings:

From his Junior days until now, Giddings has been an ever-present member of the BTCC support paddock. After a pair of top six finishes were his best results in 2010, ‘Giddy’ returned to the Juniors in 2011 and broke into the podium mix, picking up two rostrum finishes.

A move to the Renault UK Clio Cup followed with Finesse Motorsport, regular top ten finishes through 2012 helping him becoming a front-runner this season, the Wisbech-based racer just missing out on a maiden podium finish en-route to tenth in the championship.

Chris Swanwick:

2010 was a mixed campaign for Swanwick, two podium finishes being overshadowed by a mid-season ban over driving standards. A move into the Renault UK Clio Cup in 2011 brought some top ten finishes before a mid-season promotion into the BTCC.

Racing a Rob Austin Racing Audi A4 NGTC, Swanwick finished five of the six races he competed in, with a best finish of seventeenth. Since then, the Nottingham-based racer’s attempts to return to the BTCC grid have been unsuccessful though, budget problems forcing a prolonged spell on the sidelines.

Brad Bailey:

2010 was the start of a four-year association so far for Bailey and the Ginetta G40. After breaking into the top ten in the Juniors in his first season, Bailey was a regular front-runner during 2011, taking three fourth place finishes.

The Essex-based racer moved into the Ginetta GT5 Challenge in 2012, a tough first season ending on a high with a victory in the final race. That set the tone for a superb 2013 campaign, twelve podium finishes including three wins giving him a top three championship finish.

Adam Bonham:

A regular top ten finisher through the 2010 campaign, Bonham’s stand-out result came with a podium at Silverstone. A move to the Renault UK Clio Cup with top outfit Team Pyro followed in 2011, with Bonham instantly a front-runner.

After scoring three fourth place finishes in his maiden season, Bonham carded eleven top five finishes in sixteen races last year, with five podiums putting him fourth in the standings.


The remainder of the field consisted of: Tom Howard, David Moore, Alex Austin, Maverick Domene, William Foster, Finlay Ratcliffe, Patrick McClughan, Carl Stirling, Michael Day and George Salter.
