Ginetta have announced that the faltering G50-class of the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup will be replaced with a new class solely for G50 GT4 cars from next season.
The G50 category has been struggling for entries throughout 2013, with the Snetterton weekend seeing a season-low of just one entrant, that of class points leader Sean Huyton.
Ginetta believe the move over to only GT4-spec cars will see a rise in entry numbers, while also bridging the gap between its Junior, GT5 Challenge and G55 classes.
The current G50 model has been competing on the TOCA package for five years, as the headline model in the G50 Cup in 2009 and 2010, before becoming the sub-class when the G55 model was introduced in the re-branded Supercup.
“The series updates are designed to make our race series as accessible as possible to existing and new customers alike,” said Ginetta chairman Lawrence Tomlinson. “As our most popular race car, there are well over a hundred Ginetta GT4’s in various guises racing worldwide, and by equalising cars from different years of homologation, we are certain the Supercup will remain the race series of choice for many aspiring drivers.”
