Ginetta Unites With want2race

21st June 2019 • Simon Paice

LNT Group are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of want2race, with a view to working in partnership to expand Ginetta’s customer service with exciting new opportunities.

want2race are an established, market leading operator who have built a successful Ginetta-focused track day and race car experience company in recent years, alongside running their popular entry-level driver competition and the championship winning want2race motorsport race team.

The new partnership will see want2race operate and expand the current Ginetta BookaTrack business and lead Ginetta’s customer facing arm. A vital link between the British manufacturer and their customers, they will be based in the current state-of-the-art facilities at Donington Park.

Alongside showcasing Ginetta’s car range through premium track days, corporate events, car tests and experiences, they will run the existing drift experience, car storage, preparation, transport and car sales at the Donington Park facility.

This is the latest chapter in a long-standing relationship between Ginetta and want2race, with want2race owner Ben Hyland and Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson first striking successful working partnerships together over six years ago.

Ben Hyland – want2race: “We’ve worked hard over the years to establish our brand, and I’m proud that Ginetta see the benefit in working with us to expand their customer experience.

 “Things have really moved on since I started want2race some nine years ago with a couple of old race cars in the corn shed at Blyton Park. We’re now very excited to work alongside Lawrence Tomlinson and the team at LNT and Ginetta.

Lawrence Tomlinson, Chairman at Ginetta: “We welcome Ben on board as part of our continued investment in building UK motorsport’s most exciting network of companies, including Ginetta, Blyton Park, SIM Track and BookaTrack.

Through providing first class track day events and experiences from one central location at Donington Park, we aim to grow our current customer reach and get more people driving and buying our superb range of British built racing cars.”

The current BookaTrack and want2race websites will continue business as usual for bookings in the short term, with news announced soon of the developments from our Donington Park site.
