Hi All,

Anyone able to tell me if I'm likely to squeeze into a G50 being 6'6" (just under 2m in continental speak).

Appreciate any advice from existing owners...

Cheers,
Dylan

Welcome to the uncomfortably tall racing drivers club. You will soon learn to drive with your head on one side, legs in odd positions and with your elbows pressed against a whole myriad of chassis components in order to fit into the car of your choice.

Technically it should be possible, you might need to look at seating options and extend the steering wheel back to clear your knees! Only way to know for sure is to try it.

Haha - thanks for the welcome to the club ;-)

I've raced open top cars in the past - which is far easier to deal with by simply extending the roll cage upwards..
The question is whether there is enough room inside a G50 for me to squeeze in (i'm expecting to have to do the usual tricks - lean the seat back, steering wheel spacer, maybe modify/move the pedals..

Are the Ginetta's generally considered roomy or cramped inside for headroom?
(sadly never had an opportunity to sit inside one)
