ABOUT WILL

Jenkins-03 (2).jpg

Will Jenkins is an exciting young motorsport driver currently embarking on the latest chapter of his car-racing career in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge.

Jenkins, from Stone in Staffordshire, started competing in club level motorcross at just six years of age and made a brilliant start, earning his first championship win in only his second year of competition. A couple of years later he progressed onto four wheels in karting.

Moving his way through the Rotax karting ranks in recent years, the 17 year old enjoyed a standout 2019 campaign. With leading squad KR Sport, he won the final round of the Motorsport UK Junior British Karting Championship and was also a front-runner in the European BNL Series.

The hotly-rated talent entered the Ginetta Junior Scholarship at the end of the year and from an entry of 65 drivers, Jenkins made it through to the final five. Buoyed by that performance, he elected to enter the championship in 2020 and make his car-racing debut.

Over the course of his debut campaign, Jenkins highlighted his great potential with a brilliant pair of rookie class podium finishes and regular overall top ten results. He returned to the championship the following year with multiple champions Elite Motorsport.

Jenkins excelled across the season to finish fifth in the final championship standings, having picked up no less than eight overall podium results including a memorable maiden victory at Silverstone. With that experience under his belt, he is progressing to the next step on the GT racing ladder as he continues to pursue his ambition of becoming a professional racing driver.

"Having worked with Will for just over a season in British and European Karting, It was a pleasure to have him as part of the team, Will showed natural speed but most impressive was his ability to understand, learn and apply this on track. I am confident that Will has a bright future in Motorsport."
