Ginetta has released video of its new G60-LT-P1 LMP1 completing its first roll-out test last Friday. Its run, at the Leeds East Airport in the UK, came after the car was unveiled just over a week earlier, at the Racing Car Show in Birmingham.
For the straight-line run, Ginetta factory driver Mike Simpson was at the wheel, with Ginetta’s design, test and development teams in attendance together with representatives of the first customer team, TRS Manor.
“It was a proud moment for all of us, seeing the G60-LT-P1 powering up and down the runway, said Ginetta technical director Ewan Baldry. “We are delighted that the car’s first run went without any problems, the systems performed perfectly and we can now move on to the next stage, fine-tuning the package in an intensive test program as we develop the G60-LT-P1.
“The reception for the car at its launch was phenomenal, and with testing now underway interest in the car, its performance and potential is only going to increase. We’re very excited by what lies ahead for our customers.”
The first customer car will be entered by TRS Manor in the full 2018/ 2019 FIA World Endurance Championship including the Le Mans 24 Hours in both 2018 and 2019.
