18.01.2016: The world-leading British motorsport industry has delivered another successful

The world-leading British motorsport industry has delivered another successful year in 2015, celebrating and recognising the achievements of the renowned supply chain at the Motorsport Industry Association's (MIA) annual Business Excellence Awards.


The event, which took place in Birmingham (Thursday 14 January 2016), as part of the prominent Autosport International Show, saw more than 500 guests from across the globe come together to recognise the achievements of the motorsport industry over the past 12 months.


The MIA Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Xtrac, was presented to Yorkshire-based sports car manufacturer Ginetta Cars, for its outstanding business growth and 2015 return to Le Mans. The British company, now in its 58th year, employs 70 people and boasts four single-marque championships, featuring in excess of 70 cars across their respective grids.


MIA CEO, Chris Aylett said: "Ginetta Cars is a true British success story, producing innovative and ground-breaking cars, alongside thrilling race championships and extensive support for up and coming drivers.


With almost six decades' experience in the management, design and production of cars like the G40, G55 GT4 and GT3, Ginetta crafts many of its components on site in Leeds and is committed to supporting British motorsport.


"Taking an ambassadorial role, Ginetta also operates on the global stage, with a presence across Europe, Asia, Australia, the United Arab Emirates and South Africa, as well as North and South America.


Indeed, the MIA Business Excellence Award recognises the company's global aspirations, with the 2015 debut of the Ginetta-Juno LMP3 in the European and Asian Le Mans Series. We offer our congratulations to the whole Ginetta team, who all thoroughly deserve this award."


The MIA Business Excellence Awards Dinner in association with Dell was attended by an audience of over 500 senior executives from the international motorsport business community.
