BTCC

OUR HISTORY

Our members here at Team Dynamics Motorsport all share one passion, Racing. From our humble beginnings in 1991 as a newly founded privateer team, all the way to a state of the art, multi-championship winning manufacturer race team as we are today, We’d like to share with you our journey and some of the significant years in our racing story.

1992/1993: Steve Neal an ex-British Touring Car driver for Britax-Cooper throughout the 60s and entrepreneur acquires the touring car team and puts Matt Neal at the wheel as an independent entry in to the Super Touring Era in a BMW M3, in the second year running win the privateers title.

 

1995: After a short year break, we returned to the BTCC returned with Matt Neal racing a year-old Ford Mondeo and despite this, still won the 1995 Total Cup for Privateers and managed to score the team's best finish to date when we finished fourth overall at Snetterton, an incredible for the disadvantages privateers.

1999: Matt Neal with Team Dynamics become the first Independent team to win a race in the British Touring cars super touring era, something thought to be so difficult that Alan Gow, the championship director offered £250,000 to any independent who could achieve this. This was one of the sweetest wins in our history. Matt Neal also went on to win the Independents title over all this year.

2005/06: After the super touring era ended, many of the manufacturers backed out, Vauxhall with Yvan Muller and Seat with Jason Plato however kept there horns locked in the battle to become British Touring Car Champions. No one therefore saw how independents Team Dynamics with there new Honda Integra Type R would lead the way and take back to back championships with Matt Neal at the wheel.

2010: 20 years of BTCC as an independent with multiple race wins and 2 drivers championships under our belts, we finally became a Honda backed team, enabling us to enter as a manufacturer in the championship and let us win our first championship as a manufacturer that year and hold it for the next 4 years.

2011: Our first drivers Championship as a manufacturer with Matt Neal at the wheel of the Honda Civic FN2 took his 3rd drivers championship with team mate Gordon Shedden close behind in 2nd and team Honda taking the manufacturers title for the second year in a row.

2012: This year brought the introduction of the Honda Civic FN2, taking the BTCC by storm and winning the drivers and manufacturers title first year out with Gordon Shedden taking his maiden title in the BTCC and mirrored from the previous year, Matt Neal took 2nd place in the championship.

2015/16: Our in house designed and built Honda Civic Type R FN2’s had now won 3 drivers titles in 4 years and Gordon Shedden added 2 more wins to this with back to back victories in 2015/16 bringing a total of 6 drivers championships to the team. 2016 also saw the return of one of our historically winning sponsors, Halfords who brought back the signature orange car to the BTCC.
