The Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup with have both professional and amateur classes next season, with Ginetta introducing a ‘Chairman’s Cup’ for gentlemen drivers.
The new Pro and Am format will be trialled during the final two meetings of 2014 at Silverstone and Brands Hatch.
Similar to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB class structure, the ‘amateur’ class is being introduced in the aim of attracting more gentleman drivers to series by offering them their own championship and separate prizes.
It’s hoped that the new class will make the series more appealing as the next step for drivers currently competing in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge and Ginetta Racing Drivers Club.
Drivers will be eligible for the AM class based on their previous racing experience and results.
“With the introduction of the Pro and Am format for 2015, we will not only be able to cater for the career drivers attracted to Ginetta, but also the quick gentlemen racers who want to be a part of a top level series on the UK’s biggest motorsport package,” said Ashley Gallagher, Ginetta Championships Manager.
