Toro Verde GT To Make Ginetta GT Academy Debut

Toro Verde GT are the latest team to join the Ginetta GT Academy grid for 2022, with a multi-car entry planned for their debut campaign.

Toro Verde GT To Make Ginetta GT Academy Debut

The team, which was formed ahead of last season, competed in the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge and a couple of leading European GT championships across their maiden campaign.

Contesting the GT5 Challenge’s Am class with fellow Ginetta newcomer Mark Steel, a successful campaign saw them record three podium finishes and seventh in the final standings.

The team, which is led by former British Endurance champion Chris Jones, are in discussions with drivers to contest the GT Academy this season and expect to confirm their line-up in the coming weeks.

Chris Jones, Team Manager: “As a team, last year was our first season with Ginetta. They were very welcoming, very helpful, Mark had a great time in the paddock, and that’s what has encouraged us to continue with the brand in the GT Academy.

“The car is a lot more GT derived than the G40 GT5: its body shape, the engine, the way it drives, and the paddle shift gearbox, mean it has all the benefits of a modern GT car, and it fills the void between the GT5 and a full-blown GT4 machine. We can’t wait to get started with our programme, get out on track, and start racing.”

The Ginetta GT Academy gives drivers of all experience levels the opportunity to enjoy entry level GT racing. The series offers an uncompromising package of high performance racing at an affordable cost, with the exposure of competing at British GT and BTCC events.


We'd love to show you all that Ginetta can offer.
