From humble club beginnings to the national racing elite

Elite Motorsport began life as a team competing with the 750 Motor Club, but has now grown to become one of the leading outfits on the British Touring Car Championship support bill

There is not a great deal in common between the 750 Motor Club's Sport Specials Championship and Ginetta Junior. One is a club-level series that features a diverse range of sports-racers, many of which are one-offs or have been built by small organisations, while the other is a one-make category that appears alongside the premier circuit racing championship in the UK and requires a much larger budget. But there is a very close link between the two championships for one of the leading Ginetta squads.

Prior to becoming the team to beat in Ginetta Junior, Elite Motorsport was a regular in 750MC competition and ran its own Elite Pulse car in Sport Specials in 2014. The squad was founded by Eddie Ives, who had built kit cars as a teenager, and was focused around his own racing. That included the creation of the Elite Pulse, which Ives raced in the Classic Sports Car Club's Magnificent Sevens series in 2013 prior to taking the Class C title of Sport Specials the following year.
