Ginetta GT5 Challenge

Optimum Motorsport was founded on the Ginetta GT5 Challenge and the team has had great success in the leading one-make sportscar championship since its inception.

Based on Ginetta’s 150bhp G40 racer, the GT5 Challenge is renowned as a breeding ground for budding pros and it serves as a unique opportunity for drivers of all levels and ages to compete in a single-make series as part of the prestigious British GT and British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) weekends.

This seven-part series comprises of five British GT appearances and two on the BTCC support bill and packed grids of cars consistently produce spectacular on-track action, particularly since the introduction of a multi-class Pro and Am format in 2016, with the additional GRDC+ subclass appearing at selected rounds.

Ultimately, tight technical controls and sporting regulations makes the GT5 Challenge a competitive and affordable platform that, along with high levels of exposure both on and off the track, can act as a springboard up the motor racing ladder into higher-powered GT4 and GT3 specification machinery.
