Building on a successful 2021 debut, the all-new Ginetta G56 will join Pirelli GT4 America competition for the 2022 season. The new entrant, fielded by Dexter Racing, puts Ben Anderson alongside Matt Rivard for the Sonoma Raceway opener in GT4 America. New for 2022, the Ginetta G56 GT4 brings a host of upgrades over the previous generation G55 GT4.
“We’re excited to showcase the race-pace advantages this new Ginetta brings,” stated Rivard. Both Anderson and Rivard have shown impressive late-race drives through the field in previous GT4 America competition. “In pre-season testing we’ve put a focus on optimizing lap time late in a stint,” stated Anderson. “The ability for the drivers to adjust to the car over a stint will be crucial in our success in this sprint format.”
Ginetta North American partner Dexter Racing aims to echo its 2021 success with a repeat of last year’s season-opening win at Sonoma. Pre-season testing continues in March and the outfit has added new team members to the engineering and development side of the program. The 2022 GT4 America season gets underway at Sonoma Raceway April 13-15.
