Ginetta takes wraps off LMP1 challenger

The 2018 Ginetta G60-LT-P1 LMP1 car was unveiled today in the UK at the Racing Car Show in Birmingham's National Exhibition Center, in full TRS Racing Manor colors ahead of its debut FIA World Endurance Championship campaign this year.

The G60-LT-P1 was unveiled by Ginetta chairman, Lawrence Tomlinson, Ginetta technical director Ewan Baldry, Manor Endurance Racing sporting director Graeme Lowdon, TRS chairman Zhang Yi and TRS Vice President Li Qiao.

Following its launch, the car, designed by Ginetta's in-house design and development team coupled with a group of world-class consultants and technical partners, will embark on an extensive test program.
"We're very excited about the potential for the new car," Tomlinson said. "It will take Ginetta to our highest ever level of motorsport, and what better time to do that than at the start of our 60th year of manufacturing. And we are very confident that our customers have made the correct choice, and that this car will bring global success for them, and for us.


"While some aspects of this car have an international flavor, with only the very best of technical partners invited to work with us, this is, undoubtedly a British car looking to take on the world, the first British designed and built LMP1 car for several years.


"I am immensely proud of the scale of achievement from our team under technical director Ewan Baldry, with head of aerodynamics Andy Lewis, design engineer Stephan van der Burg and chief designer and race engineer Peter Smith.
"I have little doubt that when we can show the true potential of the car on track that our friends at TRS Racing Manor will have company in the pit lanes of the world from new Ginetta customers."

  • Full carbon fiber coupe monocoque with integrated Zylon inserts, designed by Ginetta, produced by ARS tech, Italy
