The stable of SVG Motor Sport run Ginettas continues to grow with the addition of a fifth car. All running in either the GRDC or GRDC+ championships we are also looking at running some of the cars at other events they are eligible to enter.

SVG recently made the trip to Zandvoort in the Netherlands with the GRDC+ car of Rob Morgan. This was the Ginetta Championships annual overseas trip and included three races over the course of the weekend.

It proved to be a challenging weekend for both Rob and SVG as they experienced a gearbox problem during one of the races. The Ginetta package includes a supply of spares at race meetings so a replacement gearbox was available. A quick change between races meant they could complete the weekend and score points in all three rounds.

Back in the SVG workshop, the Ginetta gearbox is now out and ready to be returned, and a new gearbox is being prepared for Rob’s car.

The championship now heads to Brands Hatch and then Donington Park, both events using the full GP circuits.

SVG Motor Sport are looking forward to a busy year Ginetta racing in 2017. We are currently running three cars in the GRDC category and are set to run one in the GT5 Challenge. The GT5 Challenge car is owned and run by SVG. The Ginettas are owned by their drivers and SVG support them in a number of ways. For some we store, transport and run the cars at test days and race days. For others we support them at the venues with setup and repairs.

SVG can tailor Ginetta race support packages to suit individual requirements and budgets for full or part race seasons. If you would like to join an experienced race team in 2017 contact Andy Johnson 01342 717282.

SVG Motor Sport are pleased to announce Pillip McGarty has joined them for the 2016 season. Phil will be racing in the British GT support series Ginetta GRDC+ Championship having graduated from the GRDC class in 2015.

Andy Johnson, owner of SVG Motor Sport, said “We are delighted to have Phil join our team this year. We learnt a lot in our first year in Ginettas last season and achieved some excellent results, including several podium finishes. We will build on what we learnt and plan to get Phil back on the podium too.”

Phil managed a podium finish last season at Rockingham in his road-legal Ginetta G40 Club Car. Phil said “I’m really looking forward to greater success this season and can’t wait to tap into the experience of Andy and the team at SVG Motor Sport.

SVG Motor Sport are planning to run three Ginettas this season. It also runs cars for customers racing with the Classic Touring Car Racing Club as well as selected other events.
