Adam Smalley is a talented young driver from Poulton-Le-Fylde, who is competing in the 2018 Ginetta Junior Championship.

His career started in 2011, as Adam made his debut in the Comer Cadet class. In his first season he became Vice-Welsh Champion at the Glan-Y-Gors Kart Circuit.

The following season in 2012 - Adam took the MBKC Club Championships, the MBKC Autumn Championship, the MBKC Winter Championship and the Welsh Championship in Comer Cadet.

Adam moved up into Junior Karting in 2013, where he took part in the Minimax class competing in the Super One British Karting Championship against 41 other competitors.

Adam took two podiums at National level - with a 2nd place finish at Glan-Y-Gors and a 3rd place finish at PF International. This led to him winning the Minimax Rookie of the Year Award.

2014 saw him once again compete in the British Minimax Championship - this time placing 4th overall after consistent podium finishes throughout the year.

Adam moved into Junior Rotax Max for 2015 and became the inaugural English Champion in the class at the Superprix. After a bright start to the season, a mid season lack of reliability and mechanical issues plagued his season.

2016 was the first season Adam would compete on a European Championship level - making a dream start by winning on his debut in the Junior Rotax Winter Cup!

A strong season against a bumper grid of 36 other drivers saw Adam take a brace of podiums, on his way to 7th overall in the Junior Rotax European Championship.

A late decision to compete for the Ginetta Junior Scholarship was made right before the submission deadline.

Adam made it through the first qualifying round despite never driving the car prior the event. As the candidates narrowed down - Adam got the final round, becoming the eventual winner of the coveted Scholarship prize, winning a funded season in the Ginetta Junior Championship for the 2017 season.

Adam will be competing with HHC Motorsport for the Ginetta Junior Championships, both overall and in the Rookie Class since it is his first year competing in the championship.
