Now back living in Australia, he is semi-retired. Last worked as a designer for Vern Schuppan's GT team. Bellamy was one of the many Australian or New Zealand-based engineers or mechanics that came over to earn a living in motor sport in the UK in the 1960's. Initially he worked with McLaren before moving to Brabham. However Gordon Murray's arrival on the scene meant Ralph switched to Lotus, working on their F2 car, working closely with Emerson Fittipaldi, whose team he would later work for. After a successful spell with Christian Danner in Formula 3000, he moved to America, before a return to Formula 1 in the late 1980's.
