Ginetta G57 to make UK race debut
The new Ginetta G57 sportscar will make its UK competition debut with a factory supported four-car entry in the new Britcar Prototype Series.
The Leeds marque will field four of the first five G57 chassis in the opening round of the mini-endurance series, which takes place on the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit on April 1-3.
The G57 is based on Ginetta’s LMP3 prototype design, but runs heavily revised aero and a 575bhp Chevrolet engine. The car’s full campaign this season is expected to be in the European Vdev series.
Ginetta’s Ewan Baldry said: “The G57 was designed and made in Britain so it’s only fitting that we race it in the UK early on.
“The new Prototype Series appeals to us as it has freedom of regulations. We can run the cars in ‘full-fat’ mode with no engine restrictions.
“During the most recent test at Donington Park with Charlie Robertson we were 3.8 seconds faster than anything we’ve run previously.”
