History of Ginetta motor car company
The Ginetta motor car company was founded in
Woodbridge, Suffolk in 1958 as Ginetta Cars Limited.
The founders were brothers called Bob, Ivor,
Trevers and Douglas Walklett. The companies
first design was the G1 but it wasn't placed on
sale to the public. The first design that was
launched for the public was the G2 which was
actually produced as a kit car for motor
enthusiasts to build from home. The first racing car was unveiled in 1961, the G4.
The G4 was a very successful race car beating MGB's and TR's also later on the likes of
3.8's. With this amount of success the G4
prompted more ambitious designs with the success
with the Imp powered G15 and a
powered G21. Both cars were available as factory
built or kit cars after testing and approval.
In the 1980's
the Ginetta company concentrated on the kit car
market revisiting the G4 model now designed as
the G27 later with a range of sports salons
including a much loved V8 G33.
Tomlinson now owns the company, a successful
business man as well as an experienced race car
driver. The aims of the company have pretty much
stayed the same, to continue producing

In 2008 the
company reached its 50th anniversary and in the
companies honour of reaching this mile stone the

along side other Ginetta's in their 80,000
square foot factory in Garforth on the outskirts
of Leeds, West Yorkshire.
