Ginetta completes first runs with new LMP1 car
Successful first tests for new Le Mans WEC car from the historic UK company, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year
Ginetta has completed the first test of its World Endurance Championship LMP1 challenger little more than a week after first being unveiled at the Autosport International show.
So-called because 2018 marks the company’s 60th anniversary, the G60-LT-P1 car ran several high speed straight-line runs at Leeds East Airport, North Yorkshire, UK.
Ginetta factory driver Mike Simpson completed the running with the car wearing the livery of TRS Manor, which will be the first customer team to run the G60 for the 2018/19 WEC season.
The closed test was attended by Ginetta’s design, test and development teams together with representatives of TRS Manor.
Ginetta technical director Ewan Baldry: ‘It was a proud moment for all of us, seeing the G60-LT-P1 powering up and down the runway. We are delighted that the car’s first run went without any problems, the systems performed perfectly and we can now move on to the next stage, fine-tuning the package in an intensive test programme as we develop the G60-LT-P1.
‘The reception for the car at its launch was phenomenal, and with testing now underway interest in the car, its performance and potential is only going to increase. We’re very excited by what lies ahead for our customers.’
