Ryan Sharp is a race car driver born in Newtonhill, United Kingdom. He raced in a partial season of the 2005 GP2 Series for the Price team and was the 2003 German Formula Renault champion.
Sharp debuted in motorsport in 1999, driving in British Formula First. He moved up to British Formula Ford in 2000, spending two seasons there, before moving to British Formula Renault in 2002 (2002 also saw him drive in one Formula Renault 2000 Eurocup race).
2003 saw his big break, though, as he moved into Europe as a full-time 2000 Eurocup driver. 2003 would also see him drive in part of the Italian Formula Renault season, and in two Formula Renault V6 Eurocup races, but Sharp's 2003 highlight was winning the German Formula Renault championship.
In 2004 he competed in Formula Renault V6 Eurocup for the Jenzer team, moving to the GP2 Series for 2005.
