Throughout 2015 CarShop will be amongst the bumps and thumps of the MSA Dunlop British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) action, by showing our support for the promising talent that is Aiden Moffat. 18 year old Aiden will be racing for Laser Tools Racing, who are a relatively new outfit to the BTCC grid only making their full debut at the start of the 2014 season.
CarShop see a lot of potential in Aiden, where aged just 16 the young Scot made history and attracted a lot of attention in becoming the youngest driver ever to enter the BTCC. Only starting his motorsport career at 12, it goes to show the impending talent that the Dalkeith-born racer has within him. In 2013, having begun the Motorsport News Ford Fiesta Junior Championship season in an uncompetitive Fiesta junior car, he was capable of obtaining a fully competitive car after round 6; essentially starting his season again he then went on to win nine of the final ten meetings. This act of talent and determination sent Aiden to a photo finish for the championship, seeing him end second overall, narrowly missing out by only 6 points of being crowned champion.
Laser Tools Racing released their new car for the forthcoming season last month. Covered from front to back with new livery, the Mercedes-Benz A Class will be Aiden’s new ride, that will get him through every corner and down every straight just that extra second or two faster. Speaking about the excitement and prospects that the partnership shall generate, CarShop Marketing Director Leo Nelson explained:
“We're really excited about this opportunity to support and grow our relationship with Aidan and the BTCC. We're dedicated to helping Aiden’s goal become more achievable, by ensuring that he is provided with the best possible backing. And because we too are motoring enthusiasts this seems like a perfect fit, providing exciting opportunities for both parties."
The first race of the season will be at Brands Hatch over Easter weekend (4th-5th April) where Aiden will start his quest on being crowned 2015 MSA British Touring Car Champion and we at CarShop want to give you the opportunity to join him. We will be offering five lucky winners and their family a chance to attend a selection of races with full hospitality. This will include a three course lunch, complimentary drinks at their very own table, VIP access to the garage area and access on to the grid before the start of the race. The winners will be able to watch Aiden, and the other BTCC competitors from the VIP stands at Croft, Silverstone, Snetterton, and Thruxton.
We will be announcing further details of the competition very soon so please keep in contact with our website www.carshop.co.uk, our facebook page, www.facebook.com/carshopuk, or our twitter page @CarShopUK for updates.
