LNT completes Ginetta-Zytek test

Team LNT has completed a shakedown of its new LMP1 Ginetta-Zytek GZ09S at Snetterton.

The test marked the first outing for the car ahead of planned outings in the remaining rounds of the Le Mans Series and in the Le Mans 24 Hours during the summer.

Team LNT chief Lawrence Tomlinson was on track in the car along with the experienced figure of Guy Smith, and teenage Ginetta factory driver Nigel Moore for a trouble-free day of running and Tomlinson declared himself pleased with how the day had panned out.

"As we expected the car was fantastic, a further improvement from the 07S I tested last year, this is my first time in an LMP1 car and the difference in power from an LMP2 is incredible,” he said. “The Ginetta-Zytek showed what it could achieve at Barcelona, hopefully we can build from here and get some good results, starting at Spa in two weeks time."

Zytek managing director Trevor Foster was also pleased with the test and said he was hopeful that the LNT car will be able to impress when it makes it LMS debut at Spa.

"In preparation for the Spa LMS round it is good to run another new chassis and complete 142 laps (446km) without any major issues,” he said. “It was very encouraging to receive positive comments from all three drivers, who all have varying levels of experience, hopefully Team LNT can build on the promising start shown by the Strakka Racing LMP1 in Barcelona."
