Some TLC for the Ginetta G4

Ginetta G4 historic race car

Seeing as we are not racing at the moment it was decided to give the Ginetta G4 some much needed TLC. Ian Burford has relished this little orange racer since he bought it in 2015. Usually racing with the HSCC’s Historic Road Sports the Ginetta G4 has proved to be fast, fun and reliable. Over the years, however, the fibreglass body has picked up some cracks, scratches and rashes. He thought it best time we patch it up and repaint it.

Most of the body comes off which made it easier to deal with. The cracks in the fibreglass have all been prepared. Next, we stripped down the old paint and prepared the panels for a fresh coat in the same shade of bright orange. Ian will be itching to get back out on track so we’re all hoping that racing can resume soon.

Ginetta G4 lower wishbones – Available to order

Ginetta G4 lower wishbones

We can now supply Ginetta G4 lower wishbones. Due to the current lack of supply in the market we decided to take matters into our hands. We have produced a jig from which we can make new lower wishbones. We have simplified the design slightly and increased the wishbone’s strength.

The first pair of our new G4 lower wishbones is destined for Ian Burford’s 1965 example. Ian races regularly with the HSCC in the Historic Road Sports grid.

If you require a pair of Ginetta G4 lower wishbones we can make them to order. Additionally, if you have any questions please contact us by email or telephone to make an enquiry.

Silverstone Classic

Other than a minor shower on the Friday this years Silverstone Classic was DRY and sunny! Shocking. We were there with Ian Burford’s Ginetta G4 and the Mira-Gomes XK140. This year the event seemed better organised despite the hot weather and the massive attendance of racers and spectators. Overall a great weekend. We will be looking forward to next year.

Silverstone Classic Preview Day

We were pleased to be asked to attend the Silverstone Classic preview and test day with Ian Burford. We brought with us the Ginetta G4 and the Bill Thomas Cheetah. Despite the torrential down pour in the morning that weather did eventually subside and we had some good track time.

Ginetta G4 at Snetterton

The 2018 race season is already in full swing. The calendar is filling up fast with race entries up and down the country. Last week saw us at Snetterton with Ian Burford and his 1965 Ginetta G4 racing in the HSCC’s Historic Road Sports.
