Hot off the plane from Ginetta’s excellent showing at the inaugural 24H Series Proto races in Dubai this week, SportscarGlobal’s Nick Holland grabs 15 minutes with Ginetta’s Technical Director, Ewan Baldry at January’s Autosport International show to discuss Dubai, Ginetta’s prototype program and especially the 2018 LMP1 and fill in a few gaps.  

Ewan confirms that “LMP1 is likely to carry over 0 components from the G57” and that the weight will likely by around 780kgs (as opposed to the 930kgs of an LMP3). Also that the third ‘mystery’ hire, although still not named due to serving their notice period, brings current LMP1 aero experience to the Ginetta team. 

So sit down, grab a coffee and let Ewan explain Ginetta’s LMP1 program, engines, DPi potentials and what to expect from the Ginetta ladder.
