En­durance pro­logue open to all G40s

Autosport (UK) - - CLUB AUTOSPORT | NATIONAL NEWS - STEPHEN LICK­O­R­ISH

A new pre-sea­son 24hour event solely for the Ginetta G40 is planned for next year.

The Ginetta Pro­logue at the Guadix cir­cuit in Spain, or­gan­ised by wan­t2race, will be open to Ginetta Ju­nior, G40 Cup and GT5 Chal­lenge cars.

As the March event is classed as a pro­logue rather than a race, un­der-16s are set to be al­lowed to com­pete.

“It’s not been done be­fore and we like to in­no­vate a lit­tle bit,” ex­plained or­gan­iser Ben Hy­land. “Orig­i­nally it was go­ing to be one class only, but it makes sense for it to be open to every­one and be quite in­clu­sive.

“Be­cause it’s the first time, we have no idea if it will be more pop­u­lar with Ju­niors, GT5 or G40 Cup driv­ers.

“It’s a com­pet­i­tive test es­sen­tially, but there will be prizes for do­ing the most laps. It’s a pro­logue test so it’s not run un­der a race li­cence – we are gov­erned by the cir­cuit and our in­sur­ers as to how we form the event.

“We’ve been test­ing there for the past four years with the [W2R Mo­tor­sport] team and the track is ab­so­lutely per­fect for the G40.”

Round-the-clock Ginetta event will be held in Spain
