Ginetta’s new LMP1 machine, wearing the TRS Manor livery it was unveiled in at the Autosport International Show just a few weeks back undertook several high speed straight line runs at Leeds East Airport, North Yorkshire with Ginetta Factory Driver Mike Simpson at the wheel.

The closed test saw Ginetta’s design, test and development teams in attendance together with representatives of the first customer team, TRS Manor.

“It was a proud moment for all of us, seeing the G60-LT-P1 powering up and down the runway.” said Ginetta Technical Director Ewan Baldry. We are delighted that the car’s first run went without any problems, the systems performed perfectly and we can now move on to the next stage, fine-tuning the package in an intensive test programme as we develop the G60-LT-P1.”

“The reception for the car at its launch was phenomenal, and with testing now underway interest in the car, its performance and potential is only going to increase.  We’re very excited by what lies ahead for our customers.”

TRS Manor will enter this first customer chassis in the full 2018/ 2019 FIA World Endurance Championship including the Le Mans 24 Hours in both 2018 and 2019.
