Team LNT Ginetta LMP1 has completed a three-day test of the Ginetta G60-LT-P1 AER at Circuit Paul Ricard in France.
The team undertook systems and performance testing ahead of the 2019/20 FIA World Endurance Championship with 1,400km covered over the three days. A total of more than 3,000km was completed across three tests at Motorland Aragon, Spa Francorchamps and now Paul Ricard.
Lawrence Tomlinson, Ginetta chairman, said, “After successful tests at Motorland Aragon and Spa Francorchamps, the past three days have proved that some of the development we have put into the car has paid dividends.
“The car ran fast and totally reliably for all three days in very hot conditions at Paul Ricard. It was a hugely valuable test that sets us up for the Prologue later this month and the season to follow.”
Following this round of testing, the team plans to return to its Garforth, Yorkshire, UK, base where both the car from the Paul Ricard test and its sister G60 will be fitted with the latest specification AER P60C turbocharged six-cylinder engines.
Both cars will take part in the FIA WEC Prologue test at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain, before the World Endurance Series proper gets underway at Silverstone on 1 September.
