1 Mins read

The Ginetta Cars-backed want2race competition is returning in 2014, with undiscovered racing talent’s set to battle it out for a £6,000 Ginetta prize package.

The competition sees entrants battle it out in regional karting events, before getting to grips with Ginetta G40 racers, which the winner will use to compete in the final rounds of the Protyre Ginetta GT5 Challenge.

The prize package includes the loan of a car, a helmet, race suit, boots, insurance, fuel, testing, race tyres and full support and driver coaching.

The competition starts with qualifying rounds at sixteen different go-karting tracks across the country, with the top qualifying drivers from each circuit invited to join Ginetta for a test day in their Challenge race cars, with one-to-one tuition alongside professional drivers, before the top thirty battle it out for the prize drive in the final.

“Our aim is for all drivers to experience something totally unique, learn new techniques and driving skills, but above all to have lots of fun!” said want2race organiser Ben Hyland. “Last year we saw huge potential in many drivers from all kinds of backgrounds and experience levels. Of course winning that amazing Ginetta prize package is fantastic, but getting there and being part of it makes the whole want2race experience so special.”

“Last year’s want2race competition was a huge success, and we’re delighted to be involved once again,” added Ginetta chairman Lawrence Tomlinson. “want2race is the perfect platform for adult drivers up and down the country to compete for a chance to race within a high-profile championship.”
