Ginetta extends its partnership with TOCA
TOCA has extended its partnership with Ginetta for an additional three years, meaning it will remain part of the BTCC package until at least 2023.
Ginetta has been part of the BTCC support package for the last 12 seasons in various guises, and its current Junior championship has featured every year since 2008, while the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup – which was originally called Ginetta G50 Cup – joined the following year.
Both series are popular with fans and drivers alike, with both championships attracting the largest average grid numbers on the support bill this season.
Speaking about the announcement, BTCC Chief Executive Alan Gow said: “I am delighted to have extended our partnership with Ginetta for a further three years.
“Its entertaining and fiercely-fought support championships are a longstanding and valued fixture on the TOCA package.
“The career ladder from the Ginetta Junior Championship into the GT4 SuperCup and beyond is proven and unique in British motorsport, with a host of former Ginetta drivers now competing in the BTCC – it is fantastic to see.”
Ginetta Chairman, Lawrence Tomlinson added: “Ginetta has been the biggest presence on the BTCC support bill for over a decade now and we are delighted to extend our partnership with TOCA for a further three years.
“With the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge and Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup all in action across the season, we’re able to showcase to everyone the Ginetta career ladder we offer drivers.
“Competing on the TOCA package offers our drivers unrivalled broadcast and print media coverage, as well as great exposure to thousands of fans at each of the race meetings for themselves, the teams and their sponsors.”
