If you were listening to BBC Radio One this week, you would know that The Chris Moyles show star Dave Vitty was back at LNT Group headquarters yesterday as he returned his beloved Ginetta G60 which he had on a fortnight’s loan.
The morning breakfast show presenter has become the latest celebrity to be bitten by the Ginetta bug, having spent the past fortnight behind the wheel of the Yorkshire car manufacturer’s newly-launched Ginetta G60 supercar.
Dave said; “Since I picked it up I drove from here [Garforth] to Brighton, I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to take a supercar on a long journey which was a dream come true. I’ve been tootling around all over the place and it’s been really, really nice…. and I’ve had a lot of admiring glances and people taking photos of the car as it around.
Impressed by the car’s 3.7 litre V6 engine, Dave added; The one thing that I will not forget about the fortnight is just the sound of that engine behind my head when you suddenly open it up which is just the thing of fantasy. It’s been a lovely week, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
Vitty, who had already driven - and crashed - a Ginetta race car in the past, travelled to the factory’s Leeds base to collect one of only 25 Ginetta G60’s produced each year for a fortnight’s loan, which he used as his everyday car.
Mike Simpson, Head of Sales; “The exclusivity of this luxury road car is often what attracts people such as Dave to the Ginetta brand. Perhaps only five of the 25 G60’s produced each year are sold into the UK.”
