Ginetta GT Academy car joins 2023 PalmerSport Line-Up

British motorsport brand, Ginetta, has today announced a unique partnership with Palmersport to supply its G56 GT Academy car to its fleet in 2023.

For the past six decades Ginetta has helped racers develop their talent to forge a route through to renowned international motorsport series and now drivers of all disciplines will have the opportunity to experience one of the most versatile and high-performance racing cars at Bedford Autodrome from March 2023, with eight GTA’s available to drive.

Derived from one of the most successful GT4 chassis, the G56 GTA is one of the very best platforms to enjoy the thrill of entry level motorsport delivering everything a driver needs to experience the speed, power and exhilaration of GT racing. The DNA of the car stems from 24-hour race winners, built to nullify fading performance and guarantee endurance.

Weighing 1100kg and with a 3.7-litre V6 delivering 270 bhp, GTA is a consistent and durable racer that will comfortably outperform supercars on circuit, lap after lap, and has an optional race series for those ready to commit from track day enthusiast to entry level GT Academy racer.

Ginetta’s racing ladder is renowned and its driver development programme allows the latest crop of racers to gain valuable insights, tips and coaching, including from the brand’s own factory Le Mans drivers.

Drivers of all experience levels can compete in Ginetta GT Academy series, as the field is split between experienced drivers and novices, being trained and supported by Ginetta factory drivers in the ‘Rookie’ class.
