Endurance prologue open to all G40s
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.”
