As the Autosport International Show drew ever closer, we decided to give our factory G40, G55 and G57-P2 a livery facelift before they took pride of place on our stand (6430) at Birmingham’s NEC.
With our design squad engrossed in the creation of the new LMP1 car, we decided to offer Ginetta supporters the chance to get involved. We asked you to submit a brand new livery that could be translated across our entire car range – and you didn’t disappoint.
Those of you familiar with our range will appreciate that there are some significant differences between our cars – there’s not much that a G40 and a G57-P2 have in common – and it was a real challenge to design a concept that would work on all three of our platforms.
Thank you to everyone who entered, we received stacks of fantastic designs, from the subtle to the real ‘out there’ concepts. We were consistently impressed with the quality and imagination of the work that was sent in.
Special mentions go to Jake Smith, who stunned us by also submitting some beautiful 3D renders of the G55; to Graham Eastes, who was Ruth's favourite throughout; and to Hilary Needham, who took the initiative to send us a separate design for the G57-P2.
However, there can be only one winner. After lengthy discussions (and the occasional raised voice) we finally settled on a livery that we think will work brilliantly across the whole range of Ginetta cars.
So, without further ado, we’re delighted to announce the winning design was submitted by Tim Holmes from Halifax. The livery guys have already (nearly) completed one G55 based on the image at the top of this page and work is underway on the remaining cars to get them ready in time for our appearance at Autosport Show next week. We'll be there every day from Thursday to Sunday, so please pop by the stand to take a look. Well done, Tim!
