In 2023 MacG Racing purchased a Ginetta G55 GT4 Supercup for customer arrive and drive in championships such as the British Endurance Championship and GT Cup. The full specification of the car is as follows:
The car is available for hire in the Championships listed above, so please contact us with your requirements.
After the 2014 season, the MacG Racing Team realised that to achieve the consistent level of performance and reliability required to compete with the factory built and run GT3 machinery from the likes of Audi, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Lamborghini, their approach had to change radically. In late 2014 they started a design exercise code named 'Project Taranis', which put simply, was to design their own GT3 specification car. There were certain constraints - some of the existing components which had been developed for the Ultima previously had to be reused, such as the suspension system, and the design had to utilise the central cockpit and bodywork section of the Ultima. The rest was free.
Project Taranis was designed through late 2014 and into 2015. The design focussed around improving reliability by improving packaging to reduce component stress, improve heat management and respecifying certain components, whilst strengthening areas which were deemed too close to failure. Performance was improved with improved suspension geometry, increasing chassis stiffness, increased aero and lowering the centre of gravity, and discarding unnecessary weight.
Project Taranis was manufactured and built by the Team through the late stages of 2015, until it hit the track in early 2016. In it's first test it lapped 4 seconds a lap quicker at Donington than the Ultima ever had previously, despite having the same power to weight ratio...and the test was conducted on old tyres!
The result was a car that was fast, reliable, and easy to drive. Capable of racing and winning in sprint or endurance races.
The MacG Racing Taranis was retired at the end of the 2022 season and is now available for sale - please use the shop link above, then click on 'Vehicles' to view.
Having developed the original Mazda RX8 into a very successful endurance racing car, it became apparent that the standard Mazda RX8 chassis was capable of handling much high power levels. In order to fill the void in performance between the Taranis and the Mazda RX8, the Team built the Mazda RX87 FD. This drew upon the experience with the original RX8, allowing them to improve the development on the chassis further still, to which they added a Mazda 13B-REW single turbo engine which produces around 400bhp. Mated to a sequential transmission, the superb RX8 chassis finally had a powertrain to match. The RX87 FD is a full endurance specification racecar, suitable for Britcar Trophy or 750MC Club Enduro.
The Team purchased the Mazda RX8 in April 2012, and stripped the car entirely and rebuilt it from the ground up as a purpose built race car using high specification components throughout. It was specified to be eligible for Championships such as the Britcar Trophy, the 750MC Roadsports Championship, 750MC Club Enduro or the Nippon Challenge.
