Ginetta builds top-flight LMP1 Le Mans racer for 2018

January 08, 2017

 

The new LMP1 will be designed in-house under Ginetta technical director Ewan Baldry at the companys Leeds base.

The decision to build an LMP1 follows Ginetta’s entry in 2015 into the LMP3 arena and its subsequent failure to land one of the four franchises to build chassis for the new LMP2 formula that begins in 2017.

Ginetta is in talks with several engine suppliers, including Honda – via its Honda Performance Development arm – and Mecachrome. 

Ginetta will not be running a factory team but will be looking to build ten chassis to support three, two-car teams run by customers.  Significant interest has already been expressed from both new and existing customers, including G57 customers PRT Racing and ARC Bratislava for their 2018 WEC campaigns.
