New Home For Ninth Annual Ginetta Junior Winter Series

1 Mins read

The Ginetta Junior Winter Series has a new home for 2016, moving to Brands Hatch for its ninth running following two years at Snetterton.

The two-day event, which will run on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November, will follow the same format as recent years, with one qualifying session and two races on each day – replicating two regular Junior race weekends.

The winner will receive half price entry into the 2017 Junior Championship or GT5 Challenge, with other prizes to be confirmed for second and third overall, the top rookie and the “Hard Charger” award for most positions gained over the four races.

In the past, former Winter Series winners Seb Morris (2010), Harry Woodhead (2012) and Jamie Caroline (2014) have all gone on to win the main crown the following season, while reigning champion Stuart Middleton is currently in contention for the 2016 title.

Of the nineteen drivers that contested in last year’s Winter Series, fourteen have gone on to competed in this year’s main championship, including breakthrough race-winners Harry King, Geri Nicosia, Seb Perez and Will Tregurtha.

“The Ginetta Junior Winter Series always offers fantastic racing,” said Ginetta Championships Manager Ash Gallagher.

“Not only does it provide an opportunity for current drivers to have a second shot at a Junior title, it is also 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.”
