Williamson Dynamics Grand Prix (currently run under the name 'European Williamson Dynamics Grand Prix') is a GPVWC Constructor owned by Ben Williamson and is based currently in Berlin, Germany.

The team itself was born for the acquired assets of Scotia Racing, an open wheel squad which operated between 2005 and 2008. Williamson Dynamics acquired the team towards the end of the 2007 season and agreed to hold off on a full works entry until the 2008 season. Instead opting to make their name as an engine supplier in a number of series.

In 2008, Williamson Dynamics F1 appeared on the gird for the first time, competing in the FSR World Series. While giving noted competitors such as Camilo Andres Nino, Benjamin Chong their breakthrough drives, the team also secured their maiden pole position and two wins in their debut season.

The team withdrew at the end of the season following a dispute with the governing body over entry fees for the 2009 season. After a season to forget in the GPO World Championship, the team finally arrived into the GPVWC in 2010.

Despite high hopes, steady development and an impressive initial line up, the team struggled consistently in their maiden season. The following year, despite again nurturing talent in the form of impressive debutante, Ojay Clarke, the team again fell into disarray and withdrew from competition for a period of re-evaluation. It was in this season that the 'European' prefix was added to the team name, referring to European Automotive, the virtual car manufacturer under the same corporate umbrella. European itself ran as an independent team throughout 2008 and 2009, using 2008 Williamson Dynamics chassis and powertrain.

In 2012 and 2013, the team have consolidated operations and focussed mainly on GT and endurance prototype racing with a long term view to returning to open wheel competition.
