The Ginetta GT Supercup and Ginetta Junior Championship will both stay on the British Touring Car Championship package until at least 2016 after a new deal was confirmed at Snetterton at the weekend.

The deal coincides with changes to the GT Supercup which will see the current G50 class replaced by one for the G50 GT4 model - as used in a range of series' around the world.

"We are looking forward to seeing our championships continue to flourish on the TOCA package, and the series updates are designed to make our race series as accessible as possible to existing and new customers alike," Ginetta boss Lawrence Tomlinson said.

"As our most popular race car, there are well over a hundred Ginetta GT4's in various guises racing worldwide, and by equalising cars from different years of homologation, we are certain the BRDC-qualifying Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup will remain the race series of choice for many aspiring drivers."

Ginetta Championships Manager Max Gregory was also pleased with the announcement.

"We are delighted to confirm that two of our three single-make championships will retain their position as part of what is one undoubtedly one of the UK's most popular racing package for another three years," he said.

"It is crucial for Ginetta to offer something worthwhile for all our customers, and racers on the TOCA package receive unrivalled broadcast and print media coverage, as well as great exposure to thousands of fans at each of the race meetings throughout the season for themselves, the team and their sponsors."

Michelin meanwhile has extended its backing of the GT Supercup for another two years.
