Ryno-Racing-Long-Beach

Ryno Racing will present Ginetta’s latest prototype racer, the G57, at the world famous Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach April 15-17 in beautiful Long Beach, California. This launch is a huge step forward for the planned expansion of Ginettas global export as this will be the fist G57 reaching the shores of North America.

We are looking forward to meeting with fellow driver and potential partners, so if you are at the race make sure to swing by Booth 1115 and say hello.

ABOUT THE GINETTA G57:
The latest prototype model from Ginetta features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with a carbon crash box, along with an FIA-approved steel roll cage. Under the carbon panels sits a Chevy LS3 6.3-liter V8 engine pushing no less than 570 horsepower to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential transaxle gearbox provided by Xtrac. 

This model is also configurable to suit a wide range of driver experiences and is eligible for highly competitive car racing championships around the world. Although its first public appearance in the United States will be at the LBGP, the Ginetta prototype has already raced the VdeV series in France and other sports car championships throughout Europe.

Series racing include:

  • Verizon IndyCar Series

Watch the Test Video

It might be cold and wet outside Ginetta HQ, but the weather wasn’t going to dampen our Development Team’s spirits last week. They packed up their race truck and took the brand-new Ginetta G57 down to Silverstone circuit for a spot of pre-season testing.

Having been unveiled to the public at Autosport International on January 14, the 580bhp prototype caused quite a stir around the famous circuit. It was the first time that unmistakable roar of a hearty V8 was put on display, as newly announced Factory Driver Charlie Robertson ‘gave it the beans’.

As one of the fastest track day machines on the market, the G57 is a fun and accessible way to get on track for less than £200,000. It doesn’t stop there either: weighing in at under 900kgs, this ultimate track day toy is powered by a fearsome Chevrolet-sourced LS3 6.3-litre V8 engine which is developed in-house at Ginetta HQ, we guess the unrestricted aerodynamic package is just the icing on the cake.

Don’t just take our word for it though, the video below is a feast for your eyes and ears as we join the Ginetta team in savouring that gluteal sound of the brand new beast!

Ginetta announced Wednesday the launch of a new entry level prototype, the G57, which effectively replaces the LMP3 project the British manufacturer had spearheaded this year in the European Le Mans Series.

The G57, powered by a Chevrolet LS3 engine, will not be eligible for ELMS or Asian Le Mans Series competition, but is instead geared towards other European prototype series, such as the French VdeV Series, where it has already been approved for competition.

“The European Le Mans Series provided the perfect platform to further introduce the Ginetta brand to the European marketplace, and we worked closely with the ACO to ensure both the car and the series was a success,” said Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson.

“As a business, we must now continue towards our goal of increasing export, which inevitably means creating a new, and significantly faster car which is eligible for competition on a number of different global platforms.”

Ginetta’s factory Team LNT squad, meanwhile, will not continue in the ELMS next year, although the manufacturer has expressed that it will still support its existing LMP3 customers with the spec ORECA-supplied Nissan powertrain.

A handful of Ginetta LMP3 teams, including United Autosports and Speed Factory Racing, have already announced a switch to the Ligier JS P3 for competition in the ACO-run series.

It’s understood there are up to 10 Ginetta-Nissan LMP3 cars in existence today, which will still be eligible for ELMS and Asian LMS competition.

Nissan to run more GT Academy racers in LMP3

Nissan is set to run some of its GT Academy graduates in the Watkins Glen test in three weeks’ time.

Nicholas Hammann and Bryan Heitkotter are believed to be two that may run in one of the Ginetta-Nissan cars.

“It is inevitable that LMP3 will be a part of the US sportscar scene and Lawrence is adamant that it is a great market for the Ginetta product,” said Nissan box Darren Cox.

“We fully back that and have a great relationship with Ginetta and I am sure you’ll see other chassis manufacturers following soon.”

Cox reiterated his belief in the LMP3 concept, saying: “I am a big believer in supporting the new ladder in endurance racing,” said Cox.

“We have already made a commitment to LMP3 by placing Gaetan (Palatou) in a car at the Silverstone ELMS race and also what we are achieving with Chris Hoy and his program in the ELMS and his run at the test day.

“We believe in it and we will continue to be involved with our new GT Academy recruits.”
