Multiple British GT champions Barwell Motorsport are one of the UK’s most successful professional racing teams, competing at the forefront of various motorsport categories over the past five decades. Their race-winning history dates back to the 1960s, competing in GT/sportscars, touring cars, single-seaters and historic racing. Since starting its GT racing programme at the end of 2005, the team has been one of the most successful and versatile outfits of its kind, racing in GT1, GT2, GT3 and GT4 categories all around the world.

Barwell 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. It has also contested the world’s premier GT race event, the 2014 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium where it claimed the Pro-Am runner-up spot and seventh overall.

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. From 2012 until '15 it successfully ran their BMW Z4 GT3s in the British GT and pan-European series, winning the 2014 British GT Championship Drivers' title with Marco Attard. Last season it clinched the Teams' title with the sister BMW driven by Phil Keen and Minshaw.

The latter pairing returned in 2016 as part of a new look, two-car Lamborghini squad enterned under the Barwell Motorsport racing with Demon Tweeks banner. The #6 Huracan led the standings heading into the final round before an accident put paid to both their drivers' and teams' title hopes. Minshaw and Keen were joined at the squad by Liam Griffin who shared the second Huracan with Lamborghini factory driver Fabio Babini, Adam Carroll and familiar face Alexander Sims, who had partnerd Attard in 2014 and '15. 

2017 brings with it an element of continuity and exciting change: Minshaw and Keen are back to exorcise the ghosts of last season's championship near-miss, while Griffin is joined by BTCC runner-up and GT convert Sam Tordoff aboard Barwell's second full-season Lamborghini entry.
