Following a positive three weekend spell this year, Jenson Dineen will contest the full Ginetta Junior Championship season in 2017.
Dineen joined the championship for the final three meetings of this season with JHR Developments, the team with whom he will remain next year.
He took a best finish of fifteenth at Silverstone, before putting in a strong showing during the end-of-season Winter Series at Brands Hatch.
“I’m so excited for my first full season in the Ginetta Junior Championship. I joined the grid for the last three rounds of 2016 and the Winter Series and it was such great fun,” said Dineen.
“The JHR Developments team are a fantastic bunch and I am certain that working with them will help me run at the front of the Rookie Class in my first full year with Ginetta.”
JHR’s Jules Phillips added: “Jenson comes from a motorcycle background so to see how far he has come in such a short time shows us all that he has the potential to take home silverware both in the rookie championship and overall.
“Jenson is a great talent and has become an integral part of the team, we are all looking forward to helping him achieve his goals for 2017.”
