The Ultimate GT Endurance Cup has been gaining increasing notoriety in recent years thanks to the participation of numerous prestigious brands. In response to this enthusiasm, manufacturers continually express their desire to get more involved.
Following Aston Martin, another renowned British brand, Ginetta, through its French subsidiary operated by CMR, officially joins the championship. Thus, at the initiative of Ginetta France, the Ultimate Ginetta GTA Endurance category will be launched within the Ultimate GT Endurance Cup.
From the start of the 2024 season at Castellet, this new specific category will promote the participation of the Ginetta G56 GT Academy; these impressive racing cars, equipped with 300 horsepower, have a total weight of 1,150 kg and reach a maximum speed of 225 km/h.
The carefully crafted calendar, comprising six rounds, will lead competitors on iconic circuits such as Paul Ricard, Portimão, Hockenheim, Mugello, and Magny-Cours, thus offering a varied and stimulating set of racing environments.
