Formed in 2005, Speedworks Motorsport entered the BTCC in 2011, becoming one of the first teams to field an NGTC-spec car with a Toyota Avensis for Tony Hughes. The Cheshire-based operation branched out in 2012 by adding a second car for championship debutant Adam Morgan.

That helped the squad to tenth in the final Teams’ standings that year and sixth in the Independents’ title chase. Following Hughes’ retirement and Morgan’s departure, Dave Newsham and Ollie Jackson took over driving duties in 2013, with the former proving to be a regular points-scorer and annexing a top ten championship position as Speedworks improved to seventh in the Teams’ table and fifth-best Independent. For 2014, the outfit slimmed down to a single-car entry for promising three-time Ginetta champion Tom Ingram, whilst offering support to the Handy Motorsport squad.

Speedworks retained Ingram for 2015 and coupled with engineering upgrades to the Toyota over the off-season, its young driver claimed two podiums on his way to 13th in the overall standings.

Having finally reached the BTCC rostrum, the partnership continued into 2016 as the goalposts shifted once again with Speedworks and Ingram targeting their first outright win – which duly came from pole position in the season-opening round at Brands Hatch. A further pole and race victory followed at Silverstone later on in the campaign.

Ingram took to the grid in 2017 in a newly-facelifted Speedworks Motorsport Toyota Avensis and pushed things on to the next level. A more composed, consistent 2017 saw him rocket to three further victories, starting at Donington Park. Visits to the top step at Knockhill and Silverstone would follow on his way to by far a best BTCC tilt to date for Ingram – in the end good for third in the overall standings, and top of the tree in the Independents’ championships for both driver and team.

Ingram pushed things even closer in 2018, taking the title battle right down to the wire, having taken victories at Brands Hatch Indy, Donington Park and Silverstone. He missed out narrowly on the overall Drivers’ crown by 12 points in a straight fight with Colin Turkington but did once again seal the Independents’ championships for both himself and his team.

Speedworks acquired Toyota factory backing for 2019, becoming Team Toyota GB with Ginsters.
