Oh well, more Andrew Morrisons out in the S+S now then!
I know an ex-Seat designer, she got fed up of the "rat race" of the car design world, I can see her point. She is now a Primary School teacher. The last car she worked on was the Altea XL, I think she said. She was about 8 years ahead of me at school and her Dad was one of Dad's colleagues from another practice.
With SEAT having pulled the plug on its involvement in UK motor sport, Ginetta is to double it's presence on the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship bill with the announcement that the G50 Series will replace the SEAT Cupra Championship on the BTCC's support package.
The G50 Series, which has proved to be a huge success in its first year, will join Ginetta's Junior Championship, the Renault Clio Cup, Formula Renault and the Porsche Carrera Cup on the support card with a deal having been inked until the end of 2010 at least.
"Ginetta is proud to secure the Ginetta G50 Cup on the BTCC tour," Ginetta's Richard Dean said. "We consider the BTCC to be one of the highest profile motor sport series in the world. Ginetta's strong presence underlines the hard work put in by everybody at the company over the last two years.
Being unstable & Bitchy is all part of my mystique!
full grid of g50's going round the hill, methinks we will be kept busy
btw what is the marshals camping arrangements at BTCC/GT meetings, is there a nice bit of flat (ish) tarmac/gravel for me to park my caravan on, would guess there is no chance of a 240v electric hook up
opinions expressed here are my own, isnt that what forums are for lol
