Barwell Motorsport AMR

Since Barwell Motorsport started its GT racing programmes in 2006, it has been one of the most successful and versatile teams of its kind. They have raced in the GT1, GT2 and GT3 categories around the world – all with cars produced by Aston Martin Racing (AMR).

In 2008 they attained Official Partnership Team status with AMR, and played a major role in the development of the new Vantage GT2 car during their season in the American Le Mans Series.

Prior to the GT era, Barwell made its name in national saloon and Touring Car racing and claimed the 2003 British Touring Car Production Drivers and Teams Championship titles.
