Ginetta Auction Unique V8 Table For Cushty

1 Mins read

Ginetta are to auction off an original Team LNT G55 GT3 V8 glass coffee table to raise money for the Michael ‘Cushty’ Tallentire Foundation.

Cushty, who was the Chief Engineer of Ginetta’s GT3 project, sadly passed away on December 24th 2013. The foundation was set up by long-time friend Martin Short, to provide Cushty’s two sons, Alex and Freddie, with funding for life events in the future.

22 year old GT3 mechanic Josh Harbour came up with the idea for the table, and used an original engine from the GT3 racer, with staff throughout the LNT Group donating the money required to cover the costs of parts sourced from outside the Ginetta factory.

More information on the Cushty Foundation, and on how to bid for the piece, can be found at:
