Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ginetta has launched a new young driver devel­op­ment scheme, and has signed four young­sters for the com­ing sea­son.

British driver Jor­dan San­ders, French­man Remy Deguf­froy and Amer­i­cans Parker Chase and Harry Gott­sacker are the first driv­ers to join the pro­gramme.

The scheme will al­low the four to be placed with Ginetta cus­tomer teams around the world. They will work with Simp­son Motorsport and fac­tory driv­ers Char­lie Rober­ston and Mike Simp­son at test and devel­op­ment days.

Ginetta’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Ewan Baldry said: “We will pro­vide them with op­por­tu­ni­ties – both on and off track – to de­velop them into pro­fes­sional driv­ers.”

San­ders made his car rac­ing de­but in 2016 after grad­u­at­ing from karting. He raced in Vdev in a CN car and then swapped to a G57-P2, along­side Deguf­froy. Chase and Gott­sacker grad­u­ate from the Pirelli World Chal­lenge, where Chase was rookie of the year.
