British GT Championship Welcomes Ginetta Lineup Change for 2023

    Motorsport enthusiasts can look forward to an exciting 2023 season as Ginetta, the renowned British manufacturer, has announced a three-year partnership with SRO Motorsports Group. This strategic move will see Ginetta’s three championships integrated into the British GT and BTCC/TOCA support packages, offering a clear ladder of progression for Ginetta racers.

    “Extending our partnership with SRO Motorsports Group is all part of Lawrence Tomlinson’s vision to continue to develop our racing series and experience,” explained Mike Simpson, Head of Motorsport at Ginetta. “This move will make racing more efficient for teams and drivers, while enabling Ginetta to expand its renowned racing ladder philosophy to Europe and the USA.”

    The Ginetta Junior Championship, the UK’s longest-running junior series, will continue to provide an opportunity for 14 to 17-year-old drivers looking to make the transition from karting, utilizing the versatile Ginetta G40. The Ginetta GT Academy will offer entry-level GT Racing for those outside the Junior age group, with experienced drivers and novices competing in distinct classes.

    A new addition for 2023 is the Ginetta GT Championship, which will combine the GT Pro and GT5 categories under a fresh car and championship structure to be announced in the future.

    Alongside these three series, Ginetta has committed a number of entries to the GT4 class of the British GT championship, allowing customers who own the Ginetta G56 GT4 cars to compete in the prestigious series.

    Lauren Granville, Intelligent Money British GT Championship Manager, expressed her delight at welcoming Ginetta exclusively to the championship package for the next three years, stating, “Ginetta’s championships are a cornerstone of Britain’s modern-day motorsport landscape, and we are thrilled to have them join our strong national platforms: GB3 and GB4.”

    The departure of Ginetta’s championships from the BTCC support paddock leaves a gap that will be filled by an upcoming announcement from Alan Gow, Chief Executive of the British Touring Car Championship.
