Ratcliff to retire from Caterhams to take on Moss Trophy
Four-time Caterham champion Peter Ratcliff will call time on his 17-year Caterham career to race in the Stirling Moss Trophy series next season.
Ratcliff, who turned 60 over the weekend, will swap his Caterham CSR for a 1958 Lister Knobbly next year, one of 10 limited edition cars being built.
Alongside his Stirling Moss Trophy commitments, Ratcliff will also race a three-litre Ford Capri in the Gerry Marshall Trophy at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting.
After his second place finish in the CSCC’S Magnificent Sevens at Oulton Park last weekend, Ratcliff said: “I’ve had a fantastic time and I’ve really enjoyed it but I’ve decided to do something else.
“I want to get involved in that old fashioned, loads of power, no grip scenario and get involved with some quite prestigious meetings as well. Stirling Moss is a good series and I fancy doing that.”
Ratcliff said that the decision was made a while ago and that despite his plans to move to the Stirling Moss series, he may compete in the odd Caterham race.
“I’m going to keep the car [the Caterham], I’m not in a rush to sell it. I’ve got all these plans with the Lister and the Capri but things do not necessarily go the way you anticipate.”
