The 2014 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup is a multi-event, one make GT motor racing championship held across England and Scotland. The championship features a mix of professional motor racing teams and privately funded drivers, competing in a Ginetta G55 or Ginetta G50 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.

This season will be the fourth Ginetta GT4 Supercup, having rebranded from the Ginetta G50 Cup, which ran between 2008 and 2010. For 2014, the G50 Cup car will no longer be eligible for the championship and will be replaced by the GT4 variant, allowing for increased entry numbers by opening it up to more foreign Ginetta owners. Furthermore, the newly homologated G55 model now conforms to GT4 specification. These changes have led to the renaming of the championship to the 'GT4 Supercup'. Both cars will run under the same class through a balance of performance regulation introduced for 2014.[1]
