PalmerSport has partnered with Ginetta Cars to provide its guests with the extraordinary opportunity to win a fully financed drive in the Ginetta GT Academy for 2024.
This is an extension of the relationship which saw the Ginetta G56 GTA join the PalmerSport line-up as the headline car for its most recent season, to wide acclaim.
The main prize is the chance to compete in all 7 rounds and 21 races of the Ginetta GT Academy’s 2024 season, with six of the events on the prestigious British GT Championship support line-up.
It’s the first time that PalmerSport has offered a clear, defined pathway for its customers to transfer the experience gained from the world’s greatest driving event to life as a genuine racing driver.
The talent-spotting programme will run as a two-stage process in March, with entrants initially taking part in an assessment at Bedford Autodrome on either Tuesday 5 or Wednesday 6 March.
This will include extended driving time and coaching in the Caterham PalmerSport Edition, Palmer JP-LM and the Ginetta G56 GTA itself. Participants will also be required to set solo timed laps in each of those cars.
A maximum 64 places will be available across the two days, and these will be filled quickly.
Following the initial assessment, which will be judged by our most senior instructors, two finalists will progress to a final shootout at an MSV race circuit, which will include a funded ARDS race licence test.
The chosen winner will be granted use of a PalmerSport branded Ginetta G56 GTA race car, run by the Ginetta factory team, for pre-event testing and race weekends across the 2024 season.
