Ginetta G60-LT-P1 unveiled
Brit brand marks 60th anniversary by launching new Le Mans model at Autosport International show
Ginetta has marked its 60th year in style by unveiling the brand-new G60-LT-P1. Named in tribute to the historic British road and race car marque’s anniversary, the much-anticipated sports car made its public debut at the opening day of the Autosport International show at Birmingham’s NEC.
The ground-breaking prototype appears in the livery of TRS Racing Manor, and will compete in the eight-race 2018/2019 FIA World Endurance Championship – including the Le Mans 24-hours. Its design, development and construction were co-ordinated at the brand’s Yorkshire base by a crack team of engineers and designers, under the direction of Ewan Baldry.
Technical partners on the G60-LT-P1 include Williams Advanced Engineering, XTrac, Öhlins, ARS (chassis and composites), AP Racing, Megaline, Bosch and AVL Racing (simulation).
In the past decade since its purchase by Lawrence Tomlinson, Ginetta – which is among the few remaining British sports car manufacturers – has grown to become one of the most significant players in the global motorsport industry. It builds around 200 hand-crafted cars every year, for customers around the world.
Chairman Tomlinson said: ‘I’m delighted to unveil our latest machine, and what better time than at the start of our 60th year of manufacturing. Ginetta has a long history of international success with the G55 GT4, LMP3 and G57. The G60-LT-P1 will be a strong contender in the FIA World Endurance Championship and at Le Mans. We have a great team of design engineers in Leeds, have worked with some excellent partners on the project, and can’t wait to show you what the car is made of out on track.’
The G60-LT-P1 is on static display at Autosport International alongside the G40, G55 GT4 and turn-key prototype G58, while Ginetta models also feature in the event’s thrilling Live Action Arena.
