The 2012 Ginetta Junior Championship is a multi-event, one makemotor racing championship held across England and Scotland. The championship features a mix of professional motor racing teams and privately funded drivers, aged between 14 and 17, competing in Ginetta G40s that conform to the technical regulations for the championship. It forms part of the extensive program of support categories built up around the BTCC centrepiece.
The championship will include a new two class structure, with a Rookie Class running alongside the main class. The Rookie class will be up to eight cars, all run by Ginetta instead of independent teams and open to any race driver who has not been in the championship before. The £2,800 cost per weekend is intended to encourage young drivers to enter motorsport.
