Ginetta will take the wraps off its LMP1 car in January at the Autosport International show, the manufacturer announced on Monday. 

The car will make its race debut in the 2018-19 FIA World Endurance Championship and will be officially revealed for the first time at the show in January.

Autosport International takes place at the NEC in Birmingham, England, with the as-yet-unnamed car to be unveiled on its first day, Thursday, Jan. 11. 

The presentation will include several senior figures from the program, including technical director Ewan Baldry, Adrian Reynard, Paolo Catone and Andy Lewis.

It was announced last week that Manor and TRS have placed an order to run the car, along with a currently anonymous second team which was confirmed in October.

“I am delighted to be launching the Ginetta LMP1 car at Autosport International,” said chairman Lawrence Tomlinson.

“The show represents the ideal environment to introduce our latest model to the media, industry and fans who are the lifeblood of British motorsport.

“Not only that, but we’ll be using the show to demonstrate the Ginetta motorsport ladder in action, with our Ginetta Racing Drivers Club putting on a show in the Live Action Arena!”
