I always liked the Ginetta, but the color scheme hid how good looking of a car this is. It's got a really aggressive stance. I don't know why they went with Megachrome, or even now, AER. If that were my car I'de want a Gibson in it, just because it's so damm bulletproof.That Mecachrome engine was so bad, and the Manor program such a sham. The AER seems like it has potential, and the fact that it was competitive with Rebellion and SMP in testing is promising.
Of course, the AER has been looking pretty good in the SPM cars, so I will be delightfully wrong if the Ginetta can get some good results.
Nobody sane. You get one season against the unbeatable Toyota and then you throw all your cars and spares away. Yet another example of being so addicted to manufacturer money that the FIA doesn't take care of the interest of the privateers...............problem is...what customer would want to invest in a privateer LMP1 program right now?
Here's the fun part: They are still fighting over the Mega Super GT (or whatever they are calling t this week) rules and no manufacturers have actually committed. It's entirely possible they won't get any entries and then they will be forced to squeeze another year or two out of the current formula. If Ginetta is betting on that, they may be on to something.We're supposed to debut new rules within a few years, and until then, you should be expected to compete for best-in-class behind the Toyotas - what gives?
These are million dollar cars. A small manufacturer can't afford to burn their design, build and development costs, not to even mention the two cars they have. They going to make this work or their very existence could be threatened.
