Ginetta G55 GT4 SuperCupAdvert ID: 45858 To Be Auctioned
2016 (2022-spec) Ginetta G55 GT4 SuperCup. Ultra-competitive 2022-spec G55 GT4 with new zero-hour engine and warranty.
The Ginetta marque, which has recently celebrated its 64th anniversary, has consistently punched above its weight over time. Founded in 1957 by the brothers Walklett - Bob, Douglas, Ivor and Trevers - the company has gone onto become one of the world leaders in sprint and endurance racing formats with its strong customer support.
In 2005, Ginetta was sold to the charismatic Lawrence Tomlinson's thriving LNT Automotive Group and in 2007 moved to a new state-of-the-art customer factory near Leeds. Since then the company has become synonymous with a range of competitive GT and GT4 racing cars including the highly successful GT4 G55. This rich vein of success in modern motorsport has resulted in the marque's early cars, particularly the G4, G12 and G16 enjoying considerable extra cachet and becoming very sought after and equally the more modern cars, still with active championships, are in demand worldwide.
The GT4 SuperCup is a one make series catering for the SuperCup version of Ginetta's versatile G55. It has consistently featured close, competitive racing, season after season and as a BRDC qualifying championship, it is a proven stepping stone into a career in professional motorsport, while the Pro-Am grid format caters for both career drivers and gentlemen racers who want an enjoyable, close season of sprint racing. Broadcast live on ITV4, the SuperCup Championship offers unrivalled exposure for drivers, teams and sponsors thanks to its place on the BTCC support bill. Each weekend racing features plenty of track time with 2 x 45 minute practise sessions, followed by a 20 minute qualifying session with three 20 minutes races at each round. The GT4 spec cars are powered by a Ford 3.7-litre V6 front-mid mounted engine producing 355bhp fed through a Hewland 6-speed sequential paddle-shift gearbox with its own oil cooler and onwards to a sealed LSD with Drexler internals. The GT55's tubular space-frame is FIA approved and has full side-impact protection and an integral safety cage. Aero is provided by a full flat-floor with a front splitter, rear aero diffuser and a rear wing. Alcon 4-pot and 6-pot (F&R) vented discs provide retardation behind 9" and 10" wheels wearing Michelin control tyres. With a dry weight of 1085 kilos, these are quick cars offering 150mph on long straights.
This particular 2016 car was originally driven by BTCC driver Carl Boardley during that season It subsequently went on to win multiple Ginetta category races in GT4 and podium finishes in BTCC TOCA GT4 SuperCup including June 2021. It was fully inspected by Ginetta HQ for the current owner in 2019 and having not raced in 2020, it is now 2022 race-spec ready complete with a new unused zero-hour engine for the 2022 GT4 SuperCup or can race in other GT categories such as British GT, Britcar or in any other GT4 class around the world. Maintained by Preptech UK, leaders in Ginetta preparation, it has recently been fitted with a new engine zero-hour refresh, backed by a full warranty from Ginetta and it doesn't get much better than that.
It also comes with an extensive range of spares including:
- 5 Year Life on Ginetta Race Belts (2021-2026 Spec)
- Michelin Tyres (Brand New)
- Multiple sets of used Michelin Tyres
- Spare wheels
- Spare discs
- Spare wishbones
- Spare catalytic converter
- and much more
The car is finished in white, ready for sponsor's logos and Preptech UK, who know the Ginetta really well, are happy to assist in the support and preparation of the car should the new owner wish. Very successful in the past, this smart G55 remains ultra-competitive and with its updated spec, fresh engine, support on offer from an established preparer and very sensibly guided, there can be no finer way to go GT racing.
