Ginetta are delighted to announce Simpson Race Products as the title sponsor of the 2016 Ginetta Junior Championship.
Set to be rebranded as the ‘Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship’, the partnership sees a continuation of Ginetta’s relationship with UK Entrepreneur and head of Global Brands, Steve Perez. As the official UK importer for Simpson Race Products, Perez saw the opportunity to further promote the Simpson brand in the UK’s biggest Junior car racing series.
Steve Perez explains; “The Ginetta Junior Championship is a fantastic and very exciting race series. As a parent of a junior driver, the safety of motorsport has always been important to me and is one of the reasons I first invested in the Simpson brand. Simpson Race Products’ unparalleled commitment to safety is something I’m very proud of and makes it the perfect partner for such a competitive Championship”
Ashley Gallagher, Championships Manager at Ginetta Cars;“Ginetta are delighted to have Simpson Race Products on board as our title sponsor for the Junior Championship. Safety is paramount to both Ginetta and Simpson, and given both brands’ commitment to product quality and innovation, the partnership couldn’t be more fitting.”
The announcement follows exciting new changes to the format of the Ginetta Junior Championship, which will see competitors enjoy an additional five races included on the 2016 calendar, with three races scheduled at Donington Park, Croft, Knockhill, Rockingham and Silverstone.
Furthermore, in a drive to control season costs, a testing restriction will be in place. After the Ginetta Media Day, competitors will only be able to test at championship venues during the official Ginetta pre-event test, the official Friday test before the event and on additional day at each venue.
With the changes designed to further strengthen the Ginetta motorsport ladder, the 2016 prize packages will see the 2016 Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Champion loaned a Ginetta G55 GT4 car to be used in the 2017 Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup.
