Dave Vitty has become the latest celebrity to be bitten by the Ginetta bug, having spent the past week behind the wheel of the Yorkshire car manufacturer’s newly-launched Ginetta G60 supercar.
The Chris Moyles Show star, who has already driven - and crashed - a Ginetta race car in the past, travelled to the factory’s Leeds base to collect one of only 25 Ginetta G60’s produced each year for a fortnight’s loan.
After collecting the 3.7 litre V6 engined machine, Vitty drove from Leeds to Brighton as part Radio One’s coverage of the Olympic Torch route, where he jokingly Tweeted; “I wonder if it will increase my chances of not being single by next Wednesday?”
Dave will also take the car to this weekend’s Silverstone Classic event, where he will be competing in the Celebrity Challenge alongside friends of Ginetta Sir Patrick Stewart, Brendan Cole, Tony Hirst and Kelvin Fletcher.
Mike Simpson, Head of Sales for Ginetta said; “The exclusivity of this luxury road car is often what attracts people such as Dave to the Ginetta brand. Perhaps only five of the 25 G60’s produced each year are sold into the UK.”
