Team Bio

Neil Plimmer has various racing championships under his belt, from the ‘Star of Mallory’ FF1600 Championship and the Metro Turbo Challenge, to six years competing in the ‘Star of the Midlands’ FF1600 Championship, where he consistently finished 2nd from 1999 to 2001. In 2002, he began competing in the Fun Cup, in what was the first year of the series.

2005 was not a good year for Team Honeywell and podium positions eluded them with monotonous regularity.

However, 2006 proved to be the turning point for Team Honeywell, after the car was handed over to JPR Motorsport for preparation and set-up. Both Plimmer and Fawcett now had a car that was both on the pace and reliable, which, coupled with a good team strategy, ultimately rewarded them with the number 1 on their car for 2007.

It was a similar story for the 2007 season and the pair were the most consistent team, having had a fantastic year again. Once more, they were the number 1 car for the 2008 season.

The end of the 2008 season, saw the pair forced to relinquish their number 1. However, they did finish the season with a bang, as the overall Fun Cup winners of the of the twelve lap sprint around the world famous Nordschleife circuit.

In 2009, they were the highest achieving TDI team and 2010 saw them become British class winners at the World Cup.

In 2011, they battled furiously at every round and although many other TDI teams did not make it easy for them, they took the overall championship victory, after an extremely competitive season.

For the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Team Honeywell decided to hire a car from JPR and they competed in all of the UK championship rounds, finishing 3rd in 2013.

Team Honeywell are back for the 2015 season, along with ex-Palmer Audi and Saker Challenge racer, Tim Wheeldon.
