Ginetta Juniors 2010: Where Are They Now?

7 Mins read

Max Coates

One of the fan favourites of the Ginetta Junior grid back in 2010, Coates is a prime example of a driver with all the attributes to succeed ….. except the much needed cash.

Running as a small, family privateer outfit in 2010, Coates picked up regular top ten finishes throughout the campaign, picking up a seasons best sixth in the final race of the year.

While a return to the grid in 2011 didn’t bring with it a championship challenge as hoped, Coates was able to break into the podium places, notching up a trio of third place finishes to take sixth in the championship.

Coates started last season in the G50 class of the Ginetta GT Supercup, however a shortfall in budget meant he could only complete four weekends before departing – the Yorkshireman still made an impact though with five class wins.

Unfortunately, Coates has been restricted to just two appearances in the premier G55 class since. A run on the 2012 season finale produced a superb fifth place, while a go on home tarmac at Croft this season produced a maiden class podium – indicating that he could star with a full campaign in the series in 2014.
