Ginetta unveils LMP1 car ahead of WEC debut

11 January 2018

Ginetta has unveiled its brand new G60-LT-P1, which will participate in the top tier of the World Endurance Championship, at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham.

The manufacturer announced last year that it would build a car to contest the LMP1 category of the WEC from 2018, but the big reveal in Birmingham marks the first time the car has been shown to the public. The racer was unveiled with the help of Manor Endurance Racing, which is one of two teams confirmed to be using the chassis next year. Manor, partnering with TRS are set to use the car to step up from LMP2 to LMP1 and contest the WEC’s 2018-19 superseason. Manor has yet to unveil which engine supplier it will use to power the G60-LT-P1 chassis.

“I’m delighted to finally be able to unveil our latest machine to the motorsport industry, and what better time than at the start of our 60th year of manufacturing,” said Ginetta’s chairman, Lawrence Tomlinson. “Ginetta has a long history of international success in with the G55 GT4, LMP3 and G57. The LMP1 will be a strong contender in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and at Le Mans. We have a great team of Design Engineers in Leeds, have worked with some excellent partners on the project, and can’t wait to show you what the LMP1 is made of out on track.”
