Barwell Motorsport is one of the UK’s most successful professional racing teams, having been competing at the forefront of different motorsport categories during the past five decades.  It has a race-winning history dating back to the 1960s, and has competed in many different kinds of motorsport disciplines including GT/sportscars, Touring Cars, single-seaters and historics. Since the team started its GT racing programmes at the end of 2005, it has been one of the most successful and versatile outfits of its kind. Barwell has raced in the GT1, GT2, GT3 and GT4 categories all around the world.

The team has competed in top level sportscar and GT racing championships in the USA, UK and Belgium, as well as pan-European series such as the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) and Blancpain Endurance Series, and has competed in the FIA GT world championship. We have also contested the world’s premier GT race event, the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium with great success, scoring a hat-trick of Pro-Am Podium finishes during 2014-2016, and then taking victory in the Am Cup as well as a Silver Cup podium in 2018. We repeated this amazing double Spa 24H podium in '19, when we recorded our first Silver Cup win (and the first non-factory Pro car finisher) as well as taking second in the Am Cup.

In 2011 the team was chosen as the outfit that would bring the famous Le Mans-winning name of Ecurie Ecosse back to international sportscar racing. This partnership lasted through to the end of 2015 and resulted in two British GT Championship titles, and top 3 championship finishes in both the Blancpain Endurance Series and the European Le Mans Series. In 2016 we were selected by Lamborghini Squadra Corse to be one of their Official Partner Teams and receive a significant level of support through to the present day. In year one of this we scored the first British GT win for the Huracan GT3 and challenged very strongly for the British title, as well as taking podium finishes in the Blancpain Endurance Series. Since then we have secured back-to-back Blancpain Am Cup Drivers and Teams Championship titles, as well as two British GT Teams crowns and the BGT 2019 Pro-Am Drivers title.
