"Driving with Barwell this year has been one of my most enjoyable years in the British GT Championship, it's a great, driven, friendly atmosphere and you feel at home the moment you walk in to the garage.
The guys are dedicated to what they do and nothing is ever a problem, they even put up with my bad excuses! The whole team works together from engineers to the mechanics and you know everytime you get in the car that it's prepared to the highest standard possible.
You only have to listen to Mark's voice on the radio on the formation lap and you can hear in his voice excitement/worry making sure everything is ready before the lights go out, that only comes from a team that is passionate about what they do.
One of the best teams I have worked with if not the best, hopefully looking forward to many more years and a championship driving with Team Barwell!"

"Barwell have been like a second family to me in the racing world. Over the last 3 years we have worked together in British GT and at the Spa 24hrs and I can honestly say that they are as good as any team I have worked with in racing. They are thorough in their preparation, professional yet friendly at the track and the engineers really have an excellent grasp on the cars that they run. It’s clear in my mind that they are one of the top GT teams on the grid in both the UK and Europe."

"From my first visit to the team headquarters to standing on the podium at the 2016 Spa 24hrs, I've been hugely impressed with Barwell Motorsport. The team has a nice family atmosphere but with a strong drive and desire to win. The engineering was excellent, with good direction and well organised. From what I've seen and experienced, the team is regularly punching above its weight and should rightly be considered one of the best GT teams in Europe."

"Well, it's easy to say that Mark Lemmer and his guys are one of the top GT team in Europe, fully motivated and always on the target. But what really matters to me is that they helped me to grow up as a driver, especially out of the car which is something you hardly find and something you never stop to learn. I really hope to have the opportunity to drive with them again in the future!"

"It has been a very easy decision to resign with Barwell for the 2017 season,

As an amateur driver with little GT experience, Barwell helped accelerate my own personal driver development.

They have made me feel very comfortable , very relaxed in a very professional team that share the same principles

Of “ attention to detail !” and the desire to win."

“Barwell are a conscientious and determined outfit who not only produce well prepared cars but constantly take time out of their rivals through thoughtful and well drilled strategy.
The atmosphere is low key, professional whilst retaining that all important sense of humour.”

"Participating in Motorsport is a constant battle between your heart and your mind. The heart invariably wins but Barwell makes the mind feel a whole lot better about doing it!"

“Our return to Barwell this year was an easy decision to make. Barwell have created a team who are constant, dedicated and professional. The team runs to factory standards extracting the most out of everything they do. To instantly gel with a new car, new manufacture and then race in 5 different championships, with 3 cars and over 20 drivers is a true testament to Barwells quality."

"I have worked with Barwell for four years 2013 - 2017 and they have been great!  They are professional, honest and have in incredible depth of knowledge between them, I have learnt so much from them and to a very high level.  I wont be racing with the team in 2017 due to budget cutbacks by sponsors etc but I will remain great friends with the team and continue to contribute where I can in the hope that one day I will be back!  We had some fantatisc results with Alexanders Sims & Olly Bryant and won the British GT Championship in 2014, this would not have been possible without the huge team effort and contributions by all. Mark Lemmer who has such a wealth of experience in not only driving but running a 3 car team 'knows his stuff" and unlike many others is straight and will be honest with you.  Great team, great ethics and great staff!!!”

"Barwell are one of the most professional teams out there in the world of motorsport. It is always a privilege to drive the cars that they prepare. The team always prepare a fast, safe and reliable car that you always know will take you to that top step every time. It's great to work with top people like Mark, Chris, Chris who understand what it takes to win races and of course have fun along the way. I’m a firm believer that it's not always about your destination but the journey along the way, and it's great to say that I have been a part of their journey as well as them being a part of mine!"

"When I recently raced in The Barcelona 24 Hours with Barwell, I was faced with new event, new team mates and new team all in one go.
The guys at Barwell did a fantastic job of allowing us to hit the ground running. They're a really professional group of racers that know how to make a team gel, whether that is with professional drivers or amateurs.
They have fun but race hard at the same time!"

"Each time I have driven with Barwell Motorsport, I have finished on the podium and I can say first hand what a fantastic outfit they are. Competing directly against them for the last three years has only but confirmed my views on them being a great team. All top guys that understand motorsport to the nth degree.”

“I had a great time with Barwell. We had a good weekend during the Barcelona 24 hour race taking pole position, fastest race lap and finishing on the podium. The team works in a very professional way, which makes Motorsport so much fun. They are all passionate about racing, competing and winning!"

“The decision to partner with Barwell Motorsport for the return of Ecurie Ecosse was not taken lightly given the heritage of the team which we need to protect and the successes we wish to replicate.  Ultimately it proved to be the right one and we have enjoyed an extremely fruitful relationship for three seasons now and we intend to carry that on into the future.  Barwell are fully committed, highly competent and extremely professional with an enviable track record for reliability.  We would not hesitate in recommending Mark Lemmer and his team to anyone who wishes to compete in GT racing up to the highest level.”

"I have had the pleasure of being involved with the Barwell Motorsport team since 2006, starting out in the inaugural year of the FIA GT3 series.
Since that time I have raced across the globe in various cars and series with the team. Barwell at every stage have stepped up to the task, giving 110% in every respect and ultimately delivered the winning results.
The team is a family and being part of that family is not only an honour, but is what I feel gives Barwell Motorsport the edge over so many others."

"Over the past couple of years, I have taken part in two of the toughest GT championships in the world! A highlight for me was stepping onto my first European podium at Paul Ricard earlier this year. I strongly feel that Barwell Motorsport is the best team, they are like a family and they gel together. You’re not just a driver to them; you are a part of them.  They carry that spirit that helps you to improve and succeed. I am very lucky to have them and be part of this team."

I raced the Gulf 12 Hours of Abu Dhabi with Barwell Motorsport. The first time I drove with them it was like the lyrics of Frank Sinatra’s song: Chicago is my kind of Town.

I say: Barwell is My Kind of Team!

The team really makes you feel very comfortable, very relaxed and it feels like I’ve know them for a long time. Mark and all the guys are extremely keen and focus in every detail. The passion for racing is strong.

The will to help and improve the skills (especially for an amateur, like me with only 5 year of experience) is here.

The Gulf 12 Hours of Abu Dhabi was the first time with the team, but I hope it will not be the last.

Keep pushing guys!!
