Like many of his compatriots, Bailey took his first steps into motorsport through karting, initially in France where he obtained the Volant d’Or, FFSA, before transferring his license to the British MSA in 2016. In 2017 he won the Junior Rotax Midlands championship & in 2018 raced in the British SuperOne Karting Championship.
In late 2018 he enrolled in the Ginetta Junior scholarship &, against 75 competitors, succeeded in making it through to the final ten. Although not ultimately successful, he demonstrated potential during the media, fitness and driving assessments which persuaded him to make the move into car racing for the 2019 season.
In his “rookie” Ginetta Junior season, he improved all year finishing with a podium result at the final round at Brands Hatch in October. The Winter series in November saw further success with an additional 2nd place podium and 5th place overall.
Bailey is bi-lingual French/English & currently studying A-level Physics, Maths & French. He has always enjoyed competitive sport & has represented French-speaking Switzerland & Wiltshire County in water-polo. He also enjoys skiing & competed at the British & English Skiing Championships in 2015 and 2016.
Bailey Voisin is a name to watch out for and the Ginetta Junior Championship provides fantastic opportunities to get your company noticed. With seven square metres on the G40, there are a plethora of opportunities for brands to expand their market presence.
Cars are on show at a variety of top UK race tracks over the course of the year, with the races from each weekend shown live on ITV4 – alongside the BTCC – and can be revisited via the ITV Hub.
These features can include:
- Car with over 7m2 of available promotional space.
- The colour of the car livery in company branding.
- Company name and logos displayed on the car.
- Use of the car for exhibitions and display purposes.
- VIP Race Day Hospitality.
- Race suit – front chest, back/shoulders, upper chest, right arm & left arm
- Further branding opportunities on team wear (T-shirts, caps etc)
- Helmet – visor “sun strip”
“You will never know the feeling of a driver when winning a race. The helmet hides feelings that cannot be understood.”
Having been attracted to kart racing by the thrill and excitement, as well as the mental toughness required, Bailey’s goal in motorsport is to rise to the highest levels possible. The Ginetta family offers a unique opportunity to progress through the ranks from the Junior G40 class, through G40 GT5, to G55 Supercup and even LeMans prototypes.
As a driven and motivated young driver, Bailey understands the commitment, dedication and sacrifices needed to perform at the highest level of any sport. Nevertheless, he also is committed to his academic studies, having already passed his French GCSE 2 years early, he knows that his school performance is equally important.
The Ginetta Junior series is a stepping stone to other things, but rewards partners, sponsors and drivers who have a vision of the future and can grasp opportunities as they arrive.
