Having received a personal invitation from Lord March to exhibit their 3.7 litre, V6 powered Ginetta G60 within the Supercar Paddock at Goodwood Festival Of Speed this weekend; the Yorkshire car manufacturer are today preparing to head to what is undoubtedly the largest car culture gathering in the world.
With two daily runs up the world-famous hillclimb course planned across the three-day event, Ginetta Chairman and 2006 Le Mans GT2 winner Lawrence Tomlinson, Factory Driver Mike Simpson and musician & racing driver Rick Parfitt Jnr will be showing the Chichester crowds just what the supercar can do.
The drivers will also be making an appearance on the Michelin Supercar Stage (just outside the supercar paddock) at 11.30am each day, alongside some of the 2012 Ginetta grid stars, which include Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup championship leader Tom Sharp, newly crowned KX Akademy scholar Tom Ingram and Ginetta Junior frontrunner Sennan Fielding.
The event will also see a lucky competition winner having a passenger ride in the car during the second Supercar Run on Saturday 30thJune, alongside Rick Parfitt Jnr – who also races in the Total Quartz Ginetta GT5 Challenge – after Ginetta & Michelin teamed up to offer the once-in-a-lifetime prize.
Ginetta has a long-running involvement with Michelin Tyres, the title sponsor of their GT Supercup which runs in support of the British Touring Car Championships, and as a brand synonymous with motorsport and high performance vehicles, Michelin is the official sponsor of this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed Supercar Paddock, where motoring fans will have the opportunity to see the Ginetta G60 in all its glory.
