Hemogoblin Autowerks was an American racing team which competed in the F1RWRS. It was formed by T. Hemo Goblin at the outset of the 2011 F1RWRS season. However, it was shut down midway through the 2012 F1RWRS season by Hemo Goblin. Afterwards, the assets were bought by American Racing Conglomerate.


American driver T. Hemo Goblin formed his own team at the beginning of the 2011 F1RWRS season, one of several new entries that year. Their first race, the Bavarian Grand Prix, was fairly anonymous but Hemogoblin managed to score points in its second race at the 2011 F1RWRS German Grand Prix with Hemo Goblin taking seventh place. Hemo Goblin would take the team's first podium in only its fifth race at the 2011 Belgian Grand Prix. Before the Kent Grand Prix, Hemogoblin hired British veteran Ashley Watkinson who took the team's only victory at the 2011 F1RWRS Australian Grand Prix. It was a great accomplishment and Hemogoblin ended up in a competitive eighth place in the Constructors' Championship, just two points shy of Jones Racing. Watkinson and Hemo Goblin placed a joint sixteenth in the Drivers' Championship.

Despite their success, the 2012 F1RWRS season would be harsh on Hemogoblin. The first four races of the season was littered with DNPQs and retirements. The team saw an uptick in form at the 2012 F1RWRS Belgian Grand Prix; Hemo Goblin took the team's last podium and Watkinson finished in sixth. However, after the British Grand Prix, the team ran out of money and Hemo Goblin decided to retire. Watkinson left for work elsewhere and Hemogoblin finished a lowly sixteenth in the Constructors' Championship. The team's assets were bought by American Racing Conglomerate who were unable to keep Watkinson but hired Collin Pratchett as the only driver for the rest of the season. Hemo Goblin has expressed no intentions for a return to the F1RWRS and he appears to be happy with his retirement.
