Warwickshire businessman Jim Finneran has become the latest ambitious racing driver to take the first step towards fulfilling his desire to join the world of motorsport, after signing up to the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club.
Attracted to the accessibility to motorsport through of the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club, Finneran is aiming to finish every one of his inaugural seasons eight races, and hopes to gain some vital competitor knowledge along the way.
Finneran said;“I can’t wait to finally go racing – it’s something that I have been looking to do for some time and the GRDC looked like great fun in 2014. Thankfully the budget for two years racing with the GRDC and GRDC+ is incredibly reasonable, and the support package offers great value for money. Hopefully I can pick up a few trophies, hone my driving skills and meet some new friends along the way.”
Away from the circuit, Finneran is the Managing Director of SG Group (Business Solutions Ltd), a Specialist Recruitment and Management organisation which supply Permanent, Interim and Contract personnel throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the USA.
Finneran’s journey will begin with the delivery of his road legal Ginetta G40 Club Car, before he enjoys a number of track days with tuition prior to sitting his ARDS test. The Ginetta Racing Drivers Club supports four rounds of the British GT in 2015, visiting Rockingham (2/3 May), Silverstone (30/31 May), Brands Hatch (1/2 August) and Donington Park (12/13).
