Junior Graduate Hadfield Steps Up To Ginetta GT5 Challenge

1 Mins read

Ryan Hadfield is joining the Ginetta GT5 Challenge grid next weekend at Rockingham with his family outfit R&J Motorsport.

Hadfield competed in the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2013 and 2014, his first year being with the Junior Race Car Academy squad before R&J Motorsport was set-up last season.

Having been a regular top ten finisher in ’13, Hadfield picked up podium finishes at Brands Hatch, Donington Park and Oulton Park last year en-route to a top five championship finish.

After missing the opening rounds at Oulton Park over Easter weekend, the 18 year old is now joining fellow Ginetta Junior graduates Ollie Chadwick and James Kellett on the GT5 Challenge grid, as the R&J team expand outside the Junior series for the first time.

Alongside his own racing, Hadfield is helping run R&J’s efforts in the Juniors this season – with his younger brother Jonathan having taken the team’s first category race win last weekend at Donington Park.
