In 2017, Ross won the Britcar Endurance Championship outright, and then took the Sprint S1 category in 2018.
He secured the Britcar C2 class title in 2020, finishing second overall, and last year he won the GT Cup GTO Championship. He supported that with appearances in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, Britcar and British GT.

Matty was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but now lives in nearby Stanfordham. He has raced since the age of eight, becoming Asia Pacific Karting Champion in 2010 and then Under-18 World Champion in 2011. He graduated into race cars in 2013, initially taking wins in the BRDC Formula 4 Championship before claiming the Winter Championship title into 2014.
