With all the major manufacturers who left the class, the LMP1 races this year will go down especially to the independents. Like this one, for example
Revealed at the Autosport International show show in Birmingham, England, is the new Ginetta G60-LT-P1 – made by one of Britain's finest racing car makers and giving birth to the 60th anniversary of the launch of the company this year
The debut car bears the TRS Manor model, which is ready to occupy two of them entirely in the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship "super season" Spa and 24 hours in Le Mans at both ends, where other teams will be followed
There will have to compete with the Toyota TS050, which will remain the only important entry into the classroom. But Ginetta does not do without the complicated hybrid propulsion system. Instead, a 3.4-liter V6 package is delivered by the French supplier Mecachrome, producing 650 horsepower to reach a maximum speed of 225 mph
"I am delighted to unveil the latest car for the motorsport industry, and which is better than at the beginning of the 60th year of manufacturing, "said Ginetta President Lawrence Tomlinson. "LMP1 will be a strong competitor in the FIA World Championship (WEC) and Le Mans. We have a great team of design engineers in Leeds, we have worked with a few excellent project partners and can not wait to show you what was built LMP1 "
