Home debut for Ratcliffe with LMM
Lee Mowle Motorsport is the latest addition to the Silverstone round of the International GT Open. The British squad, currently competing in the British Gt and Michelin GT3 Cup series, will field its Mercedes AMG GT3 for Phil Keen and newcomer Ryan Ratcliffe.
“It’s the first time we’ve worked together this year, and it’ll be interesting to see how we do in a race situation”, said the 23-year-old Welshman Ratcliffe about his debut in the GT Open alongside Phil Keen, “We’ve done some coaching before, but this will be the first time where we work together over a whole weekend; hopefully it will all click into place. I’ve made giant steps forward with the Mercedes this season, and I believe I’ll really benefit at Silverstone from Phil’s experience.”
“The GT Open is a great championship that I have competed in over the past two years with Balfe Motorsport, so returning at Silverstone with the Mercedes will be great”, commented Keen, “Ryan is driving really well at the moment and I hope this weekend will push on to that next level; we’re entered as a PRO pairing, so he needs to get stuck in”.
The one-off entry into GT Open signals a potential pairing of the British duo in a future campaign.
