Optimum Motorsport: A brief history

Optimum Motorsport is recognised as the world's top Ginetta team, having notched up British GT4 title successes and high profile endurance race victories during a long-standing and lucrative association with the flourishing British sportscar marque.

Shaun Goff, who has over a decade of experience in motor racing, has been at the helm of the Wakefield-based team since 2012 and seen his outfit to the 2013 and 2016 British GT4 titles and to the top step of the SP3 class podium in the Dubai 24 Hours and Mugello 12 Hours.

However, Optimum Motorsport graduated to GT3-spec machinery for the first time in 2016. It fielded the first new-generation customer Audi R8 LMS in rounds of the British GT Championship and 24H Series, alongside existing Ginetta GT4 and GT5 programmes and one-off outings in the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup, and the team impressively finished fourth overall in its first assault on the headlining A6 class in the 2016-running of the Dubai 24 Hours.
