As one would expect from a company with a history like Ginetta, a G50 Cup Car series will be created. According to the Brits, the focus will be on keeping running costs to a minimum by using control tires, control fuel and low maintenance costs through clever design.
Lawrence Tomlinson, Chairman of LNT Automotive said: “We’ve designed the G50 as a stepping stone for GT drivers. Production of the first 30 cars is well under way with a mixture of cup, road and GT4 cars available from early 2008."
