Ginetta Junior Scholarship 2016 Nears Capacity

The Ginetta Junior Scholarship 2016 is nearing capacity, with entries for the second of the two qualification days now sold out.

As the biggest prize in UK motorsport, the Ginetta Junior Scholarship will provide one ambitious racing driver with their first step up the motorsport ladder: a fully funded season in the 2016 KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship.

Set to take place at Bedford Autodrome between Monday 26th and Wednesday 28th October, the Ginetta Junior Scholarship attracts some of the UK’s top karters looking to make the transition to sports car racing.

The three day event features two qualification days (26thand 27th) with up to 30 drivers taking part in each, and a grand finale (28th) where the 20 most promising drivers from the first two days are invited back to drive again.

This year's Ginetta Junior Scholarship will not only see one racing protégé receive a fully funded season in the 2016 KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Championship worth £60,000, but a complete support package courtesy of Goodman Media and iZone Driver Performance.

The Ginetta Junior Championship receives unprecedented media attention with races broadcast live on ITV4, and the winner can look forward to a two-hour training session with ITV motorsport presenter Louise Goodman, which aims to improve the driver's understanding of the media and increase their confidence on camera.

Not only that, but the lucky winner will be given the best possible start to their on-track career, receiving a half day of assessment and coaching at iZone's State of the art driver training facility at Silverstone.

To be eligible, entrants’ date of birth must be between 01.01.2000 and 21.03.2002 and they must not have previously competed in a circuit race, however, drivers with karting experience are actively encouraged.
