At Team Dynamics HQ in Droitwich, Worcestershire, we have assembled one of the finest teams in motorsport technology delivering bespoke race winning solutions for racing teams, drivers, and customers across the world.
With decades of knowledge and experience and the latest cutting-edge tools at their disposal, our designers, engineers, and technicians know exactly what it takes to deliver success. Turning a standard road car into a half million-pound race winning machine involves thousands of painstaking hours to create. Delivering 30 tonnes of precious racing cargo to race meetings across the globe demands military precision. Staying ahead of the competition takes people with a passion and belief in themselves and their business.
In the BTCC alone, one of the most competitive racing series in the world, we’ve helped four different drivers to seven titles, taken hundreds of podium finishes and we’ve now tallied well over 100 race wins in the championship.
Team Dynamics offers a variety of support options where you can choose to race your car independently or use Team Dynamics to create the complete package including race driver management, marketing, sponsorship, and public relations. Either way you’re going to be working with a team that’s driven to perform.
Steve Neal, the son of a metal manufacturer, initially developed his skills as a mechanic and engineer before beginning his motorsport journey with a Formula Junior Kieft, before briefly switching to a Formula Libre. He soon after got into Mini’s, competing in a few RAC Rallies, the Monte Carlo Rally and the BSCC
Steve created Rimstock in 1984 manufacturing wheels primarily for the after-market in Tividale. In the early days the company employed 11 people, but this very quickly grew to its peak of 420 and turning out more than 10,000 wheels a week. During this development the brand Team Dynamics was created becoming the go to place for aftermarket ultra-lightweight wheels for sports cars and racing teams.
Steve continued to race in different formats and soon Steve’s son Matt joined the company in 1985 and worked hard through the ranks. Matt very soon joined his father in the motorsport world competing in his first ever race in 1988. The father and son duo continued to forge their way in business and together formed Team Dynamics Motorsport in 1993.
The Rimstock/Team Dynamics brand became well established in the automotive and motorsport sectors and became one of the most successful alloy wheel manufacturers in the world.
Steve returned to motorsport in the nineties as founder and team principle of Team Dynamics Racing. He continued to develop all sides of the business until selling Rimstock to a global investment company and turning his full attention to Team Dynamics Motorsport.
Our Racing heritage now spans numerous generations with influential members of the business being family members, close friends and even godparents to the Neal children. This gives Team Dynamics a unique make up and bond, not seen in other business. That closeness of team members is the foundation to the team’s rich history.
During the 1990s, the team had occasional appearances in competitions, such were the non-championship DTM round at Donington Park in 1993 (with a BMW 318i), the 1994 FIA Touring Car World Cup at Donington Park (with a Mazda 323F) or 1995 FIA Touring Car World Cup at Circuit Paul Ricard (with a Ford Mondeo), and even finishing 2nd at the AMP Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama (with a Nissan Primera). The team even branched out into the British Rally Championship with a Toyota Corolla WRC in 2001 and then in 2005 with a Subaru Impreza S8 WRC. But their great success came from the BTCC.
Team Dynamics have built and raced competitive BMWs, Nissans and Vauxhalls, before establishing a long relationship with Honda, racing Integras and multiple generations of Civics which have dominated the series over the decades.
1999 was the turning point in the BTCC for Matt who had now become the driving force behind the Team Dynamics brand, and this pushed him to the front of BTCC Stardom. The now infamous race, where Neal dominated the works cars and saw him take that famous cheque for £250,000 in 1999, he has since won 6 independent driver’s titles and 3 BTCC driver championships.
2004 saw the family team, run a pair Honda Civic Type-Rs and then an engineering gamble in 2005 the team-built Honda Integra Type Rs. A gamble that really paid off with them winning both drivers’ championship title and teams’ championship title.
The team successfully defended all titles they took the year before – both outright and independent titles in the Teams and Drivers’ categories.
2005/2006 saw a Team Dynamics prepared Honda Integra, driven by Matt Neal, become the first independent to win back-to-back teams’ and drivers’ championships in 21 years.
In 2007, Team Dynamics switched to the latest Honda Civic and continued to run these through to the 2009 season
In 2010 the team claimed both the Manufacturers/Constructors and Teams championships.
The Team dominated again in 2011, defending both the Manufacturers/Constructors and Teams championships but also Matt winning the Drivers’ Championship.
2012 saw Honda become the first manufacturer to enter a Civic built fully to NGTC specification which Gordon Shedden promptly drove to his first championship, bringing the team’s tally of BTCC titles to an incredible 22, including 5 drivers’ and 5 teams’ championships.
The team’s dominance continued in 2013 when Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan took the driver’s title in a Team Dynamics built Civic, delivering a 4th manufacturers championship in a row for Honda.
Never scared to push back the boundaries, Neal and Shedden drove Honda Civic Tourers in the 2014 championship which saw Shedden drive to the first ever ‘estate’ car victory in BTCC history before winning his second drivers title in the latest Type R in dramatic fashion in the 2015 season.
2015 saw Shedden and Neal dominate the season before Flash won his second drivers title in the all-new Civic Type R FK2 in dramatic fashion in that year.
2016 saw Halfords reignite its relationship with the Team and it was back to back titles for Flash, in another nail biting end to the season.
2018 saw the team introduce the brand-new Honda Civic Type R FK8 alongside a new young talent from Porsche Carrera Cup Dan Cammish, replacing Flash who can moved over to WTCC. Cammish would finish his first year on a high with two wins at the final race of the year at Brands Hatch.
2019 so close yet so far! On the penultimate lap at the final race at Brands Hatch, with the Drivers Championship in touching distance, Cammish’ brakes failed and he crashed out of the race and ultimately the Drivers title. Team Dynamics however did win the Teams Championship.
2020 was an odd season, with Covid spreading around the world, the Championship was performed behind closed doors for the whole season, this was also to be the final time we saw Matt Neal in a BTCC car.
2021 saw a change in the team with Gordon Shedden returning to the Championship and with Dan Rowbottom taking up the 2nd seat. The season would see Rowbottom claim his first win in the Championship and go on to finish on the podium 4 times with his team mate Flash on the podium 9 times with two wins overall. The pinnacle of the year saw Rowbottom emphatically claim the famous Jack Sears Trophy in only his 1st year with the team.
2022 saw a bright start to the campaign with Flash claiming a win and a 3rd in the first round of the year, unfortunately the balance of performance changes then curtailed the campaign and the progress of the team for the rest of the season, but the team still claimed 6 podiums.
A Global Focus
With the team having so much success in the BTCC it was inevitable that they would branch out into other race series around the world, where numerous accolades have been won including The Asian Touring Car Championship, Swedish Touring Cars and the Asian GT Series.
This then opened the door for ‘Team Dynamics Customer Racing’ to be born.
This area of the business has a sole focus on building, preparing, maintaining, and running vehicles for customers. This gives everyone the opportunity to have the benefit of all the knowledge and technical ability within Team Dynamics and have this put into their cars alongside the BTCC cars.
The technicians and engineers within the Customer Racing branch have won British and European Endurance Championships, British and European Historic races, as well as being hugely successful in Asia and the Middle East.
The team can offer everything from simple modifications to your car all the way to investment support in a new race car, from one off race prep setup to full mechanic, engineers, and technical support for races around the globe.
This is not a new venture for Team Dynamics. The team have been seeing global success in cars that they have designed, built, and run for customers within the BTCC, Dominican Republic Touring Cars, Swedish Touring Cars, and the Asian GT.
Team Dynamics built customer cars have won numerous BTCC Drivers championships and Teams Championships. Teams such as Pirtek Racing and BTC Racing have all benefitted from the cars and technical support offered by Team Dynamics.
