Front-running prototype team Graff Racing will enter a Ginetta G57-P2 car into the inaugural rounds of the 24H Proto Series, which is set to support the Dubai 24 Hours on 10 – 11 January 2017.
As former on-track rivals, Ginetta Managing Director Ewan Baldry and Graff Racing Team Manager Pascal Rauturier have worked closely over the past few months, establishing what will undoubtedly be formidable pairing in 2017.
Having expertise which stretches across 32 years and an impressive 29 titles across the globe, Graff Racing is one of the leading lights in international competition. As a name synonymous with top level motorsport, Ginetta is thrilled to welcome the team into the family.
Ewan Baldry, Ginetta Managing Director; “We have shared a grid with Graff for a number of years in the V de V Championship, European Le Mans Series and Road to Le Mans, and on every occasion, it’s been very clear to us that Graff Racing is amongst the best teams in prototype competition.
The entire outfit is immensely professional and passionate about the racing they do, an approach which sits perfectly with that of Ginetta as we look to increase our presence across Europe. We hope this blossoming relationship is the start of a strong partnership between our two companies.”
Pascal Rauturier, Graff Racing Team Manager; “I am very happy to be collaborating with Ginetta. We have the same objectives which are to provide a quality service and a fast car for our drivers of the Ginetta G57-P2 in the fantastic Dubai 24 Hour support series which launches in January.”
Ginetta and Graff Racing will announce their complete driver line up at a later date. The 24H Proto Series 2017 gets underway with the triple header of three hour races supporting the Dubai 24 Hours. Further 12 Hour prototype race(s) in Europe are due for announcement by Creventic in the near future.
