Ginetta Juniors 2010: Where Are They Now?

7 Mins read

Ryan Ratcliffe

Alongside Ingram, Ratcliffe was the other driver from the class of 2010 to pick up a big national title this season.

The Welshman had a tough season in the Juniors in 2010, battling outside the top ten for the majority of the year. He did enjoy a breakthrough weekend at Silverstone though, carding a superb fourth place finish.

The Llanelli-based racer stepped up to the Ginetta GT5 Challenge in 2011, and was a regular podium finisher through the campaign en-route to fourth in the points.  While a second season in 2012 didn’t produce a title challenge, a pair of victories helped him to a top three championship finish.

Ratcliffe graduated into the British GT Championship this season, campaigning an Optimum Motorsport-run Ginetta G50 GT4 alongside Rick Parfitt Jnr. They emerged victorious from a tight fight with the title, thanks to seven class podiums.

Alongside the Ginetta campaigns, Ratcliffe has gained experience in endurance racing, competing in the Britcar 24hr races in 2011 and 2012, and the Dubai incarnation this year. A successful career in endurance GT racing looks likely.
