Four Ginetta G57 Prototypes have been entered for the second round of the Britcar Prototype Series at Donington Park this weekend. The Ginetta G57 was a double winner at the series’ inaugural round at Silverstone back in April, and this time out Ade Barwick, Colin White, Ollie Jackson and Paul White will pilot a car each.
With Lawrence Tomlinson unavailable to drive, Ginetta’s new commercial director and former Dubai 24 Hour winner Ade Barwick will take his seat in the Simpson Motorsport-prepared machine. No stranger to endurance racing, Ade will be joined at the team by Paul White, who finished second in the opening race of the Prototype Series season.
Colin White White has fantastic track record in both the G57 and G55 will pilot a third car.
The final car will be driven by BTCC star Ollie Jackson, who confirmed a late entry in a fourth 6.3-litre V8 Ginetta G57. The former Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup racer will compete as part of Ryan Connolly’s new team, Race Performance.
With the series racing its halfway point this weekend, the Britcar Dunlop Prototype Series will head to Snetterton in early September, with the championship drawing to a close at Spa Francorchamps in October.
A full entry list for the race has yet to be revealed.
