Entries for one of the biggest competitions in UK motorsport – the Ginetta Junior Scholarship – are now open, with one budding racing driver set to win a fully-funded season in the 2023 Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship. 

Taking place over a three-day period (October 25-27) at Ginetta’s own Blyton Park, the 13th running of the competition will see two qualifying days whittle down an anticipated capacity entry to a final group, who will then return for the final day of assessments. 

Entrants will be tested across a variety of areas including their driving behind the wheel of Ginetta’s G40, being in front of the media and taking on fitness tests.

Previous winners of the Scholarship include two-time W Series champion Jamie Chadwick, 2021 Ginetta GT4 Supercup title winner Adam Smalley, GT talent Daniel Harper and most recently Alisha Palmowski – who has made a flying start to her season already. 

Like years previous, the prize package for the winner will include payment of all entry fees, the use of a G40 Junior race car for the whole season including consumables, insurance and a season supply of race tyres and fuel, professional car preparation from an experienced team for the duration of the season and a Ginetta branded race suit. 

To be eligible for the 2023 event, competitors’ dates of birth must fall between 01/01/2007 and 20/04/2009 and they must not have previously competed in a motorsport circuit car race.
