Ginetta Junior Racing Ireland

Do you or your teenager (14-17) want to get involved in Motorsport? Why not race in a Ginetta g20 race car under the guidance of OPH racing in the Irish one make series, which offers fantastic fun and a genuine opportunity into professional Motorsport!

The concept is that identical Ginetta g20 race cars, driven by 14-17 year old male and females, race over a six round championship (12 races) to decide the overall Irish champion. The overall champion is then given free entry and the use of a Ginetta g40/50 to race in the UK on the prestigious TOCA racing package supporting the British touring cars as their prize. This prize is valued at £25,000 and gives a genuine opportunity to start a top level career in Motorsport.

Whilst this is a magnificent prize it is obvious that it is not expected for everyone to become a top level professional racing driver, but what we do regularly see is a large number of parents having amazing fun along with many memorable and new experiences with their children/young adults.

The high level of car control and awareness which is gained by driving at this level is something that is carried on throughout your child’s lifetime. We feel this level of control which brings an additional level of safety through understanding is also massively beneficial to them.hat we do regularly see is a large number of parents having amazing fun along with many memorable and new experiences with their children/young adults.

Racing in the series is safe, controlled, fun and equal for all involved. We can offer all you need to make it happen from start to finish, whether that is getting your race licence, or how to drive the car we are offering a comprehensive package to make it all happen at a reasonable cost.
