Newsham is currently competing in the 2014 season with AmD Tuning.com, driving a Ford Focus ST. This is the first time that AmD Tuning have run an NGTC car, but a best finish of ninth at the opening round at Brands Hatch's Indy circuit saw them claim their first points running a new car.
Managing director of Norscott Vending, Newsham began fully competitive motorsport in 2008, joining the TOCA organised Renault Clio Cup at the end of the season. A full season in 2009 was followed by a dominant display in 2010, twelve wins for Newsham was enough to see him take the title. With that, and a single appearance in the Ginetta G50 Cup, set Newsham up for a season in the BTCC.
Newsham's debut came at the first round of the 2011 season at Brands Hatch. Driving a Super 2000 BMW 320si run by Geoff Steel Racing, Newsham claimed a solitary point in six races before leaving the team. A second debut came for Newsham that same year, now driving for Special Tuning Racing in a SEAT Leon. 30 more points saw Newsham take 15th in the driver's standings in his debut season.
Race WinnerEditTeam ES Racing.com decided to take Newsham in 2012, allowing him to use a Vauxhall Vectra for that year. Newsham would take two wins that year, his maiden one coming at Snetterton, while the second came at Knockhill, his local circuit. 2013 saw Newsham switch to a fourth team, Speedworks Motorsport, although the move did not allow him to add to his tally of wins.
