2010 Ginetta Junior Championship season
Previous: 2009 Next: 2011

The 2010 Ginetta Junior Championship season was the eighth season of the Ginetta Junior Championship. The season began at Thruxton on 3 April and concluded after 20 races over 10 events at Brands Hatch on 10 October. The championship introduced the G40 model to replace the G20 for the 2010 season.[1]

Hillspeed's Tom Ingram became champion after a strong run towards the end of the season which included weekend sweeps at Silverstone and Knockhill, as well as a season-opening victory at Thruxton. Ingram's success, which included eight other podium finishes to go with his five wins, came despite having one of the smallest budgets of all the grid.[2] Ingram's championship-winning margin was 65 points over Tollbar driver Jake Hill,[3] who won ten races but championship aspirations were thwarted by a disqualification at the Brands Hatch GP meeting, and accidents at Silverstone and Brands Hatch Indy. TJ Motorsport's Louise Richardson finished third with a pair of victories at Snetterton and Brands Hatch Indy, along with ten other podium finishes including a run of eight successive podium finishes during the middle part of the season. Her team-mate Jody Fannin got the better of Tom Howard, who was a TJ driver until mid-season when he joined Hill at Tollbar, for fourth and fifth places; Fannin took victories at Brands Hatch GP and Croft, while Howard took the other victory at Rockingham. Defending champion Sarah Moore struggled for consistency in the season, but three end-of-season podiums enabled her to finish seventh in the championship behind brother David.
