Biography

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 continues in 2016 as the goalposts shift again and Speedworks and Ingram target their first outright win. Former European Hot-Rod Champion Matt Simpson, meanwhile, joins the BTCC in a Honda Civic Type R.
