1 Mins read

Only a few places remain for the 2016 Ginetta Junior Scholarship competition, which takes place next month at Bedford Autodrome.

The annual competition sees one racing newcomer receive a fully funded season in the 2016 Ginetta Junior Championship, with up to sixty drivers set to battle it out.

Only seven places remain for the opening qualification day on Monday 26 October, with the second qualification day on Tuesday now full up. The twenty most promising drivers then go through to Wednesday’s finale.

To be eligible, entrants’ date of birth must be between 01.01.2000 and 21.03.2002, and they must not have previously completed in a circuit race.

More information on the scholarship can be found by clicking here.

The reigning Scholarship winner Stuart Middleton has been a star throughout this season, taking a pole position and podium finish at Thruxton in May, before carding a second place double last time out at Rockingham.

Former Scholarship winners include recently-crowned British GT4 champion Jamie Chadwick, former McLaren Autosport BRDC Award finalist Sennan Fielding and 2013 Ginetta GT5 Challenge champion Oliver Basey-Fisher.
