There were lots of them racing a few years ago in the G50 cup, Britcar and British GT but it seems that many have disappeared. Are they sitting in garages for some reason, have they been converted to G55 (is that possible) or what? I always thought that they seemed to be good value race cars and there must have been a reasonable number built.

You will be very welcome. No other G50s entered that I know of yet but it's not a bad grid for a mid season taster for a potential new series. Remember, it's List 1b tyres.

I am hoping that a few G40s and 50s join in for next year, because they will be very competitive.

Hello Everyone,

Does anybody know of G50 which could be hired out for this month's Britcar round at Silverstone?

It's for a new team, fully insured, experienced drivers etc.

Main backers are vehicle livery specialists, with decades of experience in the highest echelons of car and yacht racing, so the car would need to be wrapped.

Please get in touch.

Many thanks.

There were 15 cars on the grid for the first ever race of this potential new series on Saturday which we were pretty pleased with for a first event. The cars ranged from a couple of TVRs and BMWs through Clio Cup cars to Ford Pumas. The driving standards were excellent and all really enjoyed it. We have had enquiries from a couple of Ginetta owners for the 18 Oct race at Snetterton and I know that the TVR guys would love to take on a few Ginettas!

Are you racing against Graham Davidson? He is racing with us in the Dubai 24hr race in January.

G50s are now eligible for AMOC GT4 Challenge, I assume asking as to homologated spec. 1 hour races I think and some are British GT supports.

As an ex-ginetta employee, I can confirm that yes it is possible (or at least was) to get a G50 factory converted into a G55.
