Alpha Motorsports, also known as Alpha, is an Australian GPGSL racing team. It was founded by team owner Ed Greenhalgh. The team entered the GPGSL in Season 1, replacing Team RAC after just one race of the season. It stayed in the series until Season 4 when Greenhalgh decided to focus his efforts on being a race driver only and sold the team to Alpha Racing Team. With Greenghalgh's decision to retire after winning three championships, the team returned in Season 11 replacing Greidanus Grand Prix.

Racing HistoryEdit

Season 1Edit

AlphaS4

Alpha Motorsport's Season 4 entry.

The team joined the league in the second race of Season 1 after the demise of Team RAC. The team then competed in every race up until the end of Season 4. In this period, the team scored one win, two poles, two fastest laps and two podiums. The team's sole victory came in Season 3, with Stefan van Renselaar winning the English Grand Prix and Donington Park.

Throughout Seasons 1 to 4, Alpha Motorsports used Ford engines and Bridgestone tyres. The team had a variety of major sponsors including MasterCard, LG, Emirates and Castrol. In Season 1, due to the team's late entry to the series, they ran an interim white livery.

Season 2Edit

Season 3Edit

Season 4Edit

After Season 4, regulations were introduced stating that no race driver could also own a team. With Greenhalgh deciding to focus on his driving, the team was taken over by former team driver Stefan van Renselaar and renamed to Alpha Racing Team. This team also folded after Season 7.

Season 11Edit

Early in Season 10, Greenhalgh announced he would retire from race driving at the conclusion of that season. At this stage Alpha Motorsports remained several places down the waiting list for new teams, however later developments in that season resulted in the opportunity for Alpha Motorsports to reform in the lead-up to Season 11. It was later announced that the team's drivers for Season 11 will be Tobias Kederer and Vimal Ana, while team boss Greenhalgh will take up a position as test driver.
