About Junior Rallycross
Junior Rallycross is open to drivers from 14 to 16 years of age. The current cars permitted in this rallycross category are 1000cc Minis prepared to a controlled technical specification.
This gives young talent an opportunity to develop their racing skills under the same rules and on the same circuits as the senior rallycross drivers and gives them a good foundation for moving into higher divisions as they come of age.
About Ginetta Juniors
The Ginetta Junior championship is for competitors aged from 14 to17 years old. It was first introduced in 2003 and has proved a very successful proving ground for future stars.
The single-make championship previously used the Ginetta G20 coupe car, but from the 2010 Championship brand new Ginetta G40′s are the car of choice.
The Championship supports the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) with 20 races at 10 circuits throughout the UK. The Championship is covered on ITV4 and pulls large crowds, so is the perfect racing series for young drivers to develop and prove their abilities.
