Auto Windscreens has today become the newest sponsor of Ginetta’s G60-LT-P1 cars, ahead of their bid for top spot at the much-anticipated 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend (16/17 June).
Held at Circuit de la Sarthe in France, it will be the biggest event yet for the British race car manufacturer, which is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary and produces its hand-built vehicles in a state-of-the-art factory just outside Leeds, West Yorkshire.
2018 marks the 86th year of the Le Mans endurance race, drawing in drivers, teams and motorsport enthusiasts from across the globe. It is set to be aired live to 190 countries and an estimated audience of over 100 million spectators, with over 450,000 people expected to attend the event. F1 heavyweights, Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso will also be making their course debut, demonstrating its increasing popularity.
Rupert Armitage, Auto Windscreens’ Managing Director, commented: “The Auto Windscreens brand has a long history of motorsport sponsorship and it’s great to continue this by supporting Ginetta. We’re proud to have our logo featured on their two incredible British-built cars and look forward to watching these in action. Good luck everyone at Ginetta!”
