Ginetta is one of the leading British race car manufacturers and is putting the UK at the heart of world-class motorsport again.

Challenges

Build an easy-to-use solution for customers and Ginetta staff

We started the process with gathering all important information about Ginetta, and developed a custom backend solution to fit their needs.

Developing all-in-one Racing Centre for management of drivers, teams, and races organization

There were several on-site workshops with the end client and Ginetta drivers in order to set the right foundation and to have a scalable platform architecture.

How to engage more young drivers to join the Ginetta club

We developed a simple and clean promotional website with special offers for newcomers in the eCommerce part.

Conclusion

In collaboration with Retrofuzz, we developed a cutting edge eCommerce and web app solution for the leading British sports car manufacture.

Moreover, we developed the Racing Centre app for Ginetta. Racing Centre app enables all Ginetta Championships drivers to use a dashboard where they can see their placement, past and future races, all the members of their support team, useful information, news feed surrounding their career, and many more.
