The Nottingham based 17-year old has today announced that he will be contesting the inaugural Ginetta GT Championship debuting with Breakell Racing in the new G56 GT Pro model for the upcoming 2023 season.
After making his senior circuit racing debut in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge last year, where he finished top 5 in his maiden race and secured a podium on just his second race weekend of the season, Ruben is due to take on a new challenge as he moves into the brand-new Ginetta GT Championship which supports the British GT race programme.
Ruben has rapidly advanced through the ranks in his junior career, having risen through the tiers of karting, to become UK Autograss Vice-Champion, to then become a race winner in the Junior Saloon Car Championship before making his Ginetta GT5 Challenge debut.
Ruben will be looking to put his experience to good use as he moves to race at the helm of the 310 bhp V6 GT Pro this year.
Ruben Hage, said:“I’m hugely excited to be stepping into a new challenge as I make my Ginetta GT Championship debut in a brand new car with Breakell Racing. 2022 was an exciting learning curve and I was delighted to secure sixth place amongst such a competitive grid. I’m looking forward to building on the success from last year with my partners and the Breakell Racing team beside me.”
The Lancashire based Breakell Racing squad, headed up by Company Director and Founder James Breakell, have an impressive 20 years’ experience in competing, preparing, and running race cars in various championships in the UK and Europe.
James Breakell, Team Principal, said: “After two great years racing with Ginetta, it was a no brainer to put a programme together again for 2023 and the GT Championship was a good fit for our drivers. Ruben [Hage] has highlighted himself as a real rising star in recent years, so we’re very excited to get the opportunity to work with him.”
