Broadcast live on ITV4 during the Sunday race day, The Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup is a single-class race series which features both the Ginetta G50 & G55 GT4 sports cars; running in support of the British Touring Car Championship.
Having renewed their contract with organising body TOCA, Ginetta will remain a permanent fixture on the BTCC support package until at least 2016. This coincides with the decision to introduce the G50 GT4 car to replace the old G50 Cup cars, which will race alongside the current G55 Cup car, which is also to be homologated as the 2014 GT4 spec car.
The 2014 Ginetta G55 GT4 car used the in-house Ginetta developed 3.7 Ford V6 engine, producing 355bhp. The drivetrain starts with the Hewland six-speed sequential gearbox with new for 2014 Ginetta factory-developed pneumatic paddle-shift system.
With over 150 Ginetta G50's in circulation across the globe - many of which are homologated GT4 cars -- in addition to a number of G55 Cup cars, the move will enable more Ginetta owners to compete in the single-make championships.
This commitment is further backed by global tyre manufacturer Michelin continuing its title sponsorship of the Ginetta GT Supercup as well as the series remaining as a BRDC qualifying championship, with a number of drivers having already been invited to join this prestigious club.
