Spyder has asked for help with an electrical problem on his Ginetta G15.
|we 16 Mar|
Ginetta sports cars were first produced in Campsea Ashe by agricultural engineers the Walkett brothers (we think that surprisingly wide single story building to the right of the Stratford St Andrew garage is one of theirs). We're steadily uploading a Ginetta archive and there's a drastic plastic board too.

Dave Randall has sent us another vid to edit, a make you gasp stormer start, lots of gob smackers and a stinger end. What is terrifyingly magnificent about Dave is his 1500cc Ginetta G4 isn't that powerful ... he just waits longer than everybody else before braking. This is Dave at Cadwell Park 2006 dealing with a spinning Lotus ... twice.

A G4 nears completion in the workshop, Norman's Cosworth G21 will be here for work soon, as will Zane's G15 just as soon as we can get over to pick it up.

The G12 is sold. Dave and Nina's G21 is on the free ads and we can get the car down here in the next few weeks if required.

The G20 GTC is finished. All steel dry-sump Zetec engine, 240 bhp. Quaife close ratio gearbox. LSD. Various sets of wheels and tyres. Stack rev counter. Superlight body. Seat and belts in date. All new shocks, rose joints; this is a fully rebuilt, newly-painted and set up car ready for testing.

There's a lot of chat about it on the bulletin board and we have lots of pictures to send you.

The G20 GTC is at the paint shop. It is up and running.
A panel of experts from the Ginetta Owners' Club were recently spotted at the Ginetta factory, where Lawrence kindly hosted their AGM, redesigning the G50.

Our Ginetta G27 will hit ebaY on Friday. Spadge has a knackered knee so can't drive it at the moment. Ready to test, it starts at £5,500 with no reserve!!
Paul Matty is advertising the nice modern G4 that he's had for a while. We saw it at auction a few months ago, perhaps it didn't sell?
|20 my 2010|
There's a very interesting G4/4 with an MOT on ebaY. Owned by a charming chap called Terry, we will certainly be bidding it past the reserve as it would benefit from a makeover like we've done on our one.

Dave Randall has been doing his stuff again in the G4 on The Silverstone GP circuit. See the motorsport section.

Testing went well on Friday and Paul did the business on Saturday! Our friend with a novice cross, at a circuit he'd never seen, in a car he'd never driven, in the first race since his major off last year, qualified 8th out of 20 and finished the CSCC race at a sunny Snetterton 6th! Well done matey!
More recent, excellent Ginetta results are now on the Motor Sport page

Oh my goodness! Today we have been mainly buying cars! A G20 senior project and G27R race car! Both will be up for sale soon, either as they are or ready - to - race in the case of the G27R.
The missing left hand drive G10 Coupe has turned up in the States, where we always thought it was.
John Gafford's G4 is going home to Bolton tomorrow. We will have a round tube G4 continuation kit ready next week and there's a van full of G4 style bonnets for the G4/4 and G27 on their way to Germany as we write this.

Work on the G20 continues - we're still after a Sierra LSD

The Turbo G32 has been back on the road. Vince Hawtree has started a G32 site.
We have 2 spare tickets for anyone who wants to drive their nice, road-going classic Ginetta to the Ginetta Cars Media Day at Silverstone on Monday March 15th. It should be quite a day with some excellent hospitality.
A Budget level G15 competition car project has popped up on the G15 section. We need the space so unless sold soon, we will be putting this rare opportunity on ebaY!
Talking of which, we have a G27R LSD and shafts, Imp Sport engine and transaxle on there at the moment.

There is an unmolested G15 here, for sale.

Spend ten minutes on YouTube. 1970 Targa Florio. A highly modified G12 called the Jerboa (we have lots of history on it), Ferrari 206S and period photography, colour and nice music.
We took the G27 apart today.
The Green G12 has provoked a lot of interest from Europe and Japan so please be quick if you want it. Or you may consider our G12 continuation, base level kit at £9,000?

There's some news in the motorsport section.
The G10 is being collected on Monday for some cage fabrication.
While our lightweight round tube G4 comes together, we are rebuilding the G27R into a G20 GTC which should be a somewhat quicker and less-expensive process.
|1 fe 2010|
Where did January go?! We spent some happy times at the Autosport Show where the lovely G40 was unveiled
The G10 body is looking good and there are some pictures on the bulletin board. The G32 Turbo is running and nearly ready for the MOT. We have bought a G20 junior to build into a racer a la G20 GTC and we are working on the G27 race car also.
We are interested in buying G27 body panels, particularly light weight ones and we are gearing up to be able to support all the various models that were produced by Ginetta cars. To that end, our G4 style bonnet for the G4/4 and G27 will shortly be available.
One G4 is off to the paint shop. We have a special offer on a G12 body/chassis - and we have a round tube G4 chassis in stock.
There is an update on the motorsport page.

Happy New Year Snow has delayed the return of several finished cars since the break. And even worse, we've sold our blue race G4 just when we'd got it all sorted. The proud new owner is an old friend with a bad neck!
Work has started on that special G32
