TRANSCRIPT

  • GINETTA INTRODUCTIONIn the last six years we have taken an historic British marque from its nostalgic roots in the 60s - 70s and turned it into what is today a formidable player on the World Motorsport scene.

    With over a decade of successful racing all over the world winning Le Mans GT2 class in 2006 and a solid background in engineering, I like to do things right. I believe few people are better placed to fully understand the purist love of driving and so I set the bar very high for Ginetta.

    All Ginetta models are designed, engineered and developed in-house. Over the last 5 years, the company has developed a range of award winning race cars including the G40, G50 and G55 models.

    The Ginetta G55 GT3 is our latest evolution of GT endurance racing car. The G55 offers GT teams and drivers a unique racing car, delivering a competitive edge with an elevated quality maintaining a valuable performance. Ginetta has boasted huge success in GT racing across Europe with the Ginetta G50 GT4 car. With only minor changes the original in house designed chassis has been successfully modified into the G55 GT3 chassis. The cars stunning appearance is formed around the technical carbon fibre aerodynamics package. Through vigorous tests and simulations both on the CFD CAD package and in the wind tunnel the aerodynamic performance is staggering. Ginetta firmly believe there will be no other GT3 car which will corner like the G55.

    The most dramatic change of all has come from the change in power plant. The G55 has moved to a racing 4.35 litre Ginetta engine producing sufficient power all the way to 8,500rpm. Due to the nature of the 90 V8, the crank centre line sits 45mm lower than the previous V6 engine which massively aides the handling characteristics. Complimented by the lightness of the G55 at just 1100kg the car will very much secure its position as a pace setter. The Ginetta G55 GT3 car will have National GT3 homologation and will be eligible for competition in various GT events such as British GT, Italian GT, Swedish GT, Australian GT, Brazilian GT, VLN, VdeV, Britcar, GT open and many more.
