Ginetta G55 GT4
Optimum Motorsport was founded in 2007, but the origins of the team began in early 2000, and it is today run by Shaun Goff. Over the past eight years Optimum has developed future motorsport stars across multiple Ginetta programmes, including Joe Osborne, Ryan Ratcliffe and Stewart Linn.
The Wakefield-based squad has scored six championship victories, most notably the 2013 and 2016 British GT4 class drivers' titles, and has become somewhat of a crack endurance racing team, winning the Dubai 24 Hours twice in four years, and the 2015 Mugello 12 Hours, too.
Its recent British GT record is also good thanks to the efforts of Mike Robinson and Graham Johnson whose striking PMW Expo Racing-liveried Ginetta G55 finished second in the GT4 Drivers' standings in 2015 before claiming the drivers' title 12 months later. Both men return to defend their crown in 2017.
