Ginetta will once again be kicking off their racing season in style with an appearance at the Autosport International Show where fans can take a close up look at a race-winning Ginetta G55 GT3, a Ginetta GT SuperCup G55 and both a Junior and Challenge G40.

As always, Ginetta will be bringing an element of glamour to the show with four hand-picked grid girls, including Page Three model Rhian Sugden and British Touring Car Championship promo girl Zoe James, on hand to give away Ginetta goodies as well as offer visitors to the stand the chance to win tickets to a VIP Ginetta GT Supercup & Ginetta Junior race day (in support of the BTCC) of their choice.

Additionally, Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson is set to race against some of the Ginetta stars of the past and present as well as Coronation Street star Tony Hirst as the Yorkshire marque teams up with remote control car manufacturer Mardave to showcase a brand new Ginetta GT12 car at this year's Autosport Show. Based on Ginetta's most iconic model, the scaled copy of the G50 will be raced by Tomlinson and names such as Jody Fannin, Tom Ingram, Seb Morris, Alice Powell and Tom Sharp on both Saturday and Sunday.

Keen to ensure Ginetta road car fans are also catered for, a G60 and G40R will be a part of the Autocar 'Best of British' display in the Live Action Arena which will run in every Live Action session.

Any wannabe racing drivers will also be in for a treat as Ginetta and want2race are set to offer one aspiring racer the chance to win a fully-funded drive in a Ginetta G40 during the Donington Park round of the Ginetta GT5 Challenge in October 2013 - a prize worth over £6,000. Competition entry forms and further details will be available on the Ginetta stand. The Ginetta stand will be filled with members of the team - including Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson - each eager to chat with racing car fans, so pop by and say hello.
