Details Announced For 2015 Ginetta Junior Winter Series

1 Mins read

The eighth running of the Kick Start Energy Ginetta Junior Winter Series has been confirmed for November 7/8 at Snetterton.

For the second season running, the Winter Series will take place solely at the Norfolk venue, with one fifteen minute qualifying session and two fifteen minute races on each day.

The event has proven to be a great introduction into car-racing for karting graduates, whilst also providing crucial track time for drivers already settled in the championship.

All bar one of last year’s seventeen car Winter Series entry have gone on to race in the series this season, with nine of them finishing in the top six at least once.

The 2015 champion will win half price entry into the main 2016 championship, and in the process join a roll call of successful Ginetta Winter champions.

Current championship leader Jamie Caroline won all four races en-route to the title last year with HHC Motorsport, the team’s third successive victory in the event.

2013 victor James Kellett currently tops the Ginetta GT5 Challenge, while former champions Seb Morris (2010) and Harry Woodhead (2012) went on to win the main Junior title the following season.

Ashley Gallagher, Ginetta Championships Manager said: “With over half our current Ginetta Junior Championship grid having taken part in the Winter Series last year it’s a fantastic way for those making the step up from karting to enjoy a ‘ toe in the water’ before committing to a full year in the series.”
