Footnotes

  • Produced during the late 1960s, the G12 was essentially a mid-engined version of the hugely successful G4 GT racer. Constructed over the period 2003 to 2004 to broadly 1966 specification, the car we offer is a G12 re-creation constructed using a tubular steel chassis believed manufactured by an ex-Ginetta fabricator. This car has been built to a vary high standard using many parts supplied by Dare UK, licensee for the Ginetta G12, and technical advice from Ivor Walklett, the car’s original designer and company co-founder. The engine is a 1,298cc, fuel-injected, dry sump Ford Cosworth BDH F3 unit, which has been used for only two races since a full rebuild by Wilcox Engines. Depending on set up, this unit produces anywhere between 159 and 172bhp at 8,900rpm, with as much as 200bhp possible with different (lower torque) cams. The exhaust is a Tony Law tuned system, emitting 103db. Power is transmitted via a Superclutch sintered clutch (two races old) to the Hewland Mk9 five-speed transaxle, which has been rebuilt by JP & PDS Racing. The wheels are Minilites shod with Avon ACB10 dry/CR28 wet tyres: the former two races old, the latter new. A six-point roll cage is incorporated, while the seat belts are Willans six-way, fitted new in 2007 and certified until 2011. The fully piped fire extinguishing system (Spa 4-litre) is certified until March 2008. An MST transponder is fitted to the glassfibre body and the car comes with matching tailored cover featuring the ‘Ginetta’ logo. A full listing of its specification (too lengthy to reproduce here) is available for inspection. Driven by the vendor, who is retiring from racing, this Ginetta (No. 17) has competed in the Sports Racing and GT Challenge over the past three seasons, as well as the Birkett Six-Hour Race, and is ready to provide its fortunate new owner with a potentially competitive drive.
