As part of the Ginetta Family, I will race in GRDC+ in the UK and Holland. With upgrades required to give it that extra bit of performance – namely the tyres and dampers.
As the next level of competition, the GRDC+ pushes us further by increasing the number of weekends, as well as the number of races at each venue. Sometimes joining the bigger Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge in a huge 60 car grid!
This year we also move from 8 races to 18 races! That will certainly be an extra load on our brains and physically more demanding.
In summary, the key differences are: • Increased number of race weekends – Six in total • EUROPEAN RACING • Increased number of races – Three per weekend • Potential for combined grids at larger circuits • GRDC+ holds championship status.
Despite the increased competition between drivers in GRDC+, Ginetta is committed to continuing the camaraderie of competitors and relationships which have been developed.
GRDC+ gives us the opportunity to embed ourself into one of their professional race teams.
Teams are able to look after the car at the circuit, transport it to and from events and also ensure that the set-up of the car is modified for conditions, circuit and driving.
But you guessed it, my way is going to be different…
