Since the last Motor Show at NEC not one word has been written or picture printed in MOTOR SPORT of what must by any standards be an outstanding all-new British sporting car. I refer of course to the new Ginetta G.32. For “the authoritative voice of the sport” to overlook this extremely well-designed and built car with a sporting pedigree such as Ginetta’s is beyond me. I can only assume you consider it a “kit car”.
I note that past issues have tried the Caterham, Marcos and Midas, your criterion being that these are “component cars” as distinct from “kit cars” (i.e. are available fully built-up). Ginetta’s G.32 is a component car by this criterion with the added interest that it is all new. The truth of the matter is that most “kit car” makers are also “component car” makers in that if a customer has the money they have the time to build up a car.
It is of course your privilege which cars you test, but you are very biased against the many good kit cars available.

We hope to try the Ginetta in the near future. GC
