For­mer Spe­cial Sa­loons racer Gin­ger Mar­shall has an­nounced his re­tire­ment from pro­to­type sportscar rac­ing.

The 73-year-old has raced in the BRSCC’S OSS se­ries since the cat­e­gory be­gan in 2009 and was fourth in the cham­pi­onship last year pi­lot­ing a Bowlby Mk2.

“Back in 2009, hav­ing found our­selves in the wilder­ness, with a newly built car and nowhere to race it, OSS be­came a haven of ca­ma­raderie and com­pe­ti­tion,” said Mar­shall, who has com­peted in club rac­ing for 56 years with the Mar­shall & Fraser team. “We’ve had eight in­cred­i­ble sea­sons, but now it’s time to move on.”

OSS cham­pi­onship co­or­di­na­tor Alan Jenk­ins added: “The Mar­shal & Fraser Team has been our most loyal one, hav­ing at­tended nearly ev­ery meet­ing.
