Multiple British, European, Asian, and now IMSA Endurance GT championship-winning team, Optimum Motorsport, has confirmed its intent to return to racing on home soil for 2023 and beyond with McLaren’s newest addition, the Artura GT4.

The Wakefield-based team has been a prominent entry into the British championship since 2012, and since then have claimed five titles on home soil, respectively, including their GT3 drivers' crown with Flick Haigh and Johnny Adam back in 2018.

Shaun Goff's outfit's final GT4 campaign came in 2019 with McLaren whose all-new Artura replaces the ultra-successful 570S next season.

Having competed as a one-off British GT Silverstone 500 entry this summer, claiming third place overall, Optimum Motorsport look to return for the full British GT season in 2023 with a two-car line-up in the highly competitive GT4 category.

The team would like to speak to those interested in contesting in British GT racing in the all-new exciting McLaren Artura GT4’s with one of Europe’s most successful GT teams. Please contact Team Principal, Shaun Goff, via email: for more information.

Shaun Goff, Optimum Motorsport Team Principal “The new Artura GT4 is an exciting addition to the fleet and having enjoyed many successful years in British GT, a championship that is very close to my heart, we’re really happy to announce our intent to be back next year.”
