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 five championship victories, most notably the 2013 British GT4 Class title with Ryan Ratcliffe and Rick Parfitt Jnr, 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 last season. They remain with Optimum for a second crack at the title this year.
2016 also sees Optimum step up to the GT3 class for the first time with a new generation Audi R8 LMS driven by Silver Cup pairing Ratcliffe and Will Moore, who proved rapid throughout his first season of British GT4 in 2015.Website - www.optimum-motorsport.com
