Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson said: "The G40 will be the most versatile racing car on the market... not only will it be race worthy at a variety of levels, perhaps even GT4, but will also be enjoyable to drive on a recreational level too. I have been staggered at the level of interest already shown in the car and there is simply no better place to debut the G40 than on next year's BTCC package. With the addition of the G40 to the Ginetta range, our motorsport career ladder remains unrivalled anywhere in the motorsport industry."
